I have yet to be wowed by any craft brewery in Canada, and this place is no exception. Itís essentially an old warehouse with a brewery, bar, and area for special events (they were setting up for a wedding while we were there.) They had four beers on tap: A lager, a "Kolsch-style ale," Indie Pale Ale (ostensibly an IPA) and rye ale. I tried the latter two, and came away unimpressed. Both tasted like homebrew. Reasonably decent homebrew, but homebrew, nonetheless. The IPA had zero nose and, while it had some hop bitterness, there was very little hop flavor. This is craft beer for someone who just doesnít know any better, and I personally felt it was a waste of calories. That said, the place was selling a lot of growlers on a Saturday afternoon, so they seem to be doing well. Unfortunately, I think that may say more about Windsorís beer drinkers than it does about Walkerville. It was a shame; I was really hoping to like the place, but I donít think it would last six months if it were located on the other side of the Detroit river in Michigan, where the craft brew market is head and shoulders above Ontarioís.

Brewery in Walkerville open almost a year. Did the brewery tour which is $5 and includes tastes and a beer I think .375 l. The tasting room is in front of the production facility has a bar, tables, a tv. They are distributing kegs through bars no bottles. They brew big batches -120 barrels or 2000 liters. Because of that they had 3 beers on draft. An amber lager, a nice kolsch both good, and an ipa that came in at 55 IBUs, and was good. Nice work and should be on the to do list for Windsor craft beer fans.
