Thirsty? Drink Amherstburg!
Prior to visiting one of Amherstburg’s beverage establishments, be sure to call to confirm their hours of operation.
Amherstburg is quickly becoming the hip, hot (and cold) drink mecca of Essex County! When you come to the county and specifically make your way to Amherstburg, you will find no shortage of groovy and unique establishments to hang out with your friends. In addition to the great pub or picnic-style savoury foods, you’ll be able to taste locally crafted beer, wine and spirits poured right from the source!
Starting at the most northern end of Amherstburg, check out Wolfhead Distillery. A craftsman’s operation neighboured by the Amherstburg quarry, Wolfhead incorporates the resources (such as limestone) found in its own backyard in the production of unique flavours that push the boundaries of standard Canadian Spirits. Be sure to sample Wolfhead’s award-winning coffee whisky liquor and/or apple caramel whisky, all while viewing the distilling process from its massive, showcased operations room. Foodies will appreciate an array of delicious food as well, ranging from apps and entrees to charcuterie and desserts. Located at 7781 Howard Avenue.
Head southbound to the majestic Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery. Situated along the shore of Lake Erie, Sprucewood’s beautiful setting is rivalled only by its exceptional wines! Looking for a romantic afternoon or a memorable day with friends? Take one of the winery’s famous picnic baskets to the beach or sit on its balcony while enjoying a glass of fresh Unoaked Chardonnay or light, fresh Pinot Grigio. Located at 7258 County Road 50 W.
