Bottle Shops & Craft Beer Spots in Stratford


I'll be making an short weekend trip to Stratford and am a craft beer fan. I'm wondering if there are any good bottle shops in the area that I should make a point to visit. Also, what bars/restaurants have the best craft beer selections. Any and all thoughts are appreciated.

Bottle shops do not exist in Ontario. You will find a decent craft selection at larger outlets of the LCBO, the provincial government's liquor stores. Breweries are allowed to sell their wares direct to the public as well, though not sure what Stratford has for craft breweries.

2nd the previous poster in terms of Bottle Shops, so the LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario)'s stores, or "the Beer Store" are really your only bets - Google them, check Google Maps, make that your first stop. In terms of beer bars in Stratford, I don't think there is a really killer beer bar in town, unfortunately, but if you cruise along the main road there are a number of pubs and you'll likely find 2 or 3 craft taps here and there, check some Yelp reviews as well, that might be a good place to look. Best of Luck, enjoy Stratford!

Stratford has a couple of excellent breweries. The best being the Black Swan Brewery on Downie Street. There is also the ever-popular bacon and ale trail. Here are the links.
