Highlander Brewery’s story begins in 2009 when Founder & Brewmaster Brian Wilson created Highlander Brew Co. in South River, Ontario.
Brian's first Highlander beer was a traditional Scottish Ale, which has become one of our best-loved beers. He designed it to be slightly sweet and mellower than a typical English pale ale. Extremely well-balanced and never harsh.
Next Brian created our popular Smoked Porter brewed with roasted Bamburg malts carefully smoked over toasted beechwood quickly followed, This brew is brawny and full-bodied but also mellow and soothing. NO bitter aftertaste! It has roasted espresso and chocolate notes and is delightfully delicious at 6.5% ABV. This brew keeps us all warm and toasty even in the coldest weather!
