Welcome to the Indie Alehouse Brewing Company.
We make and serve beer. Not cocktails. Not shots. Not Caesars or Martinis. It’s not that kind of place and that’s fine with us.
We’re not fans of rules, beer style guidelines, or people telling us what we can or can’t do. Our beers and food reflect this attitude and our quest to make something that will leave an impression.
We hope to evoke a “love it or hate it” response with our beers and we’re okay if they’re not for you. There are lots of choices in life and we want to offer a different choice for beer drinkers. A choice that is far from the tiresome, unoriginal, mass-marketed corporate “beer-like products”.
We make and serve hard to find Ales like a Belgian Sour, a Double IPA, or an English Porter. We make some beers regularly, some once a year, and some are made one time only. We apologize, but when you’re dealing with mad scientists, you’re a slave to our schedule
Put simply and sincerely, if you love beer, you should be here. If you like beer, you have to try us out. And if you hate beer, our menu is spectacular. We believe that you should have the opportunity to taste, enjoy, and have the choice of better beers. It’s who we are. It’s why we’re here.
Jason Fisher (Owner/Operator)
After brewing his first beer for a school science fair when he was 16, Jason started dreaming about being a beer maker. While biding his time in a business career that spanned 20+ years, Jason developed many interesting beer recipes and strong opinions. When the Indie Alehouse finally opened in 2012, it was with a mission to brew big, flavourful ales. With little regard to the traditional style guidelines and rules dominating the beer scene in Ontario, the Indie Alehouse view is that there is no substitute for real craft beer. Made with passion by people who care more about flavour than cost, the dream has been realized. For now.
Trained at the Niagara College Food and Wine Institute, Jeff Broeders hasn’t been making beer nearly as long as he’s been drinking it, but five years of brewing has yielded many successes. Drawing from his penchant for high gravity, high creativity beers, Jeff has imbued the Indie brewhouse with the ambition to push traditional style boundaries while remaining committed to balance and drinkability. He enjoys watching sunrises and sunsets with his beloved lauter tun.
