Stopped here to get some German style beers. Unfortunately they were limited in the choices as the beers are not quite ready. They will be ready for the summer rush though. The owner is very nice and we chatted about German style beers. We tasted what was available and decided on the Kölsch and Dunkel beers. I also got a... More

Had an opportunity to have a tasting with the owner/brew master. All beers were good they do more lagers that were refreshing from the other breweries who do more IPA. We look forward to going back to refill our growler.

We stopped here with our 2 kids ages 18 and 13. The gentleman behind the counter was extremely friendly and very talkative. I really enjoy a Radler and was disappointed they only had the raspberry on tap. The retail fridge was basically empty. The bar area is nice but no chairs/stools. It's a very weird setting in the back of... More

This summer we have started filling our growlers here. The Aussie is a nice hoppy ale that almost borders on IPA territory and it's delicious. The Brewmaster and staff are kind and don't mind answering a million questions from curious tourists. It's a simple front store so there's nothing here but beer and courteous service.

I like craft beer and like what Killanin produces, too. So I was pretty keen when I went to visit the Killanin store for the first time to buy NZ Red I really like. And they were out, which you have to understand is a risk with these small-batch brewers. I ended up buying some Aussie in cans with no... More

This brewery can't keep up with the demand for their amazing stuff. Can't wait for their new batch of "Men who stare at oats" and the Alt. I am now force to look for a keg fridge. ;P

Alt if a wonderful craft beer to enjoy on a hot weekend day. It is among the best available in Ontario. I find it goes particularly well with spicy food. There are more varieties on offer, so stop by to sample. If you love craft beer, do not miss this place. As you head north on Hwy 6&10, turn right... More

Spencer is one of those rarities in the world. He studied the art of beer making abroad and brought it back. I haven't tried the Aussie yet but it's next on my list. As for the others the way I sum them up is like this. Alt - nice strong flavored beer. Sort of like a bock beer. Kolsh -... More

Very impressed with the young entrepreneur! He'll be a force to reckon with in the beer industry, no doubt! Hubby picked up a decent selection of new beer to try!

Being from Grand Rapids, MI (Beer City, USA), we wanted to visit as many craft breweries as we could while on vacation in Ontario. Kilannan Brewing was one of our stops and we were very impressed. It was great talking to the Head Brewer's dad who was very knowledgable about the beers. We had a great chat while sampling the... More
