The Essential “Wet Your Whistle” Guide

There’s nothing like a thirst-quenching beverage after a long day of sightseeing. But we’re not talking about lemonade. The Town of Amherstburg is home to more than 7 vineyards, breweries, and distilleries that specialize in ice cold, locally made refreshments. Making sure you never get thirsty, we’ve put together a tasting guide to the Amherstburg Region!

Our brew masters and winemakers are brilliant, fun, and adventurous. They’ve set the bar high for one another and the breweries and wineries in neighbouring regions with their unique drinks. From a perfect I.P.A. to a satisfying chardonnay our independent craft beer and winery scene is gaining momentum and fans near and far. Don’t forget to buckle up your bottle on the way home!
