Walkerville Brewery | Windsor ON | by David Ort | Reviewed spring 2017
Depending on how you do the math, Walkerville Brewery is the oldest small brewery in town. The name has been worn by three separate operations, including one that Hiram Walker started in the 19th century and another that made a go of it during the 1990s microbrewery wave before declaring bankruptcy in 2007.
The current iteration has been around since 2012 with a focus on session-able core beers. In that vein, the Honest Lager has a coppery cleanness and perfectly tuned carbonation and Waterfront Wit is bright and citrusy with the requisite coriander backbone.
Even with this easy-drinking lineup, brewer Michael Beaudoin also talks enthusiastically about their experimental barrel programme.
