This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Shawn & Ed Brewing ( Also known as S & E Brewing Co.) a new brewery located in Dundas Ontario. I was especially excited to visit this brewery because it’s so close to home and Dundas is such a great little town!
The building is a historic landmark in Dundas and has a long history dating back to the 1860’s when it was first used as a Curling & Skating Rink. The building has had many other functions over the years serving as a garage space, a manufacturer for washing machine parts, and as a furniture store.The space is stunning and the owners have done an excellent job maintaining the character of the building, making it the perfect space for a brewery:
The brewery offered 4 types of beer to choose from, their LagerShed selections: Original, Lighter, Darker and their BarrelShed selection which is gently aged in wine barrels. Naturally I tried all 4…the Darker was my favourite!
The focus of the Brewery of course is to produce a great quality beer. They have a retail store at the front entrance where you can purchase beer, and of course a bar for tasting! There is no kitchen at S & E Brewing Co. however I was thrilled that they had support from the Gorilla Cheese food truck for the opening weekend! I don’t know if a food truck will be a permanent fixture at the brewery but the grilled cheese here was phenomenal, and the perfect pairing for beer! (We had the Zesty Mordant…Doritos & jalapenos….say what? AMAZING)
I’m excited to see how well S & E Brewing Co. does in Dundas. Opened just in time for those hot summer days; a large venue to produce the beer, you can certainly expect to see S & E Beer at local bars, the Beer Store & LCBO very soon!
Good Luck you guys!
