About Us

About HBBCo.

Small but mighty family brewery located in the heart of Ingleside, along the storied St. Lawrence River.​ HBBCo. is an Ontario Craft Brewers (OCB) and Canadian Craft Brewers Association (CCBA) member and Ontario By Bike bicycle friendly brewery. We were humbled to be named the South Stormont Chamber of Commerce New Business of the Year in 2019.​ From humble beginnings come great things.​​
HBBCo. would like to respectfully acknowledge that the sacred land on which we gather, and of which many of our ingredients are grown, is the traditional territory of many nations, including the Omàmiwininiwak territory of the Anishinaabeg, and the Kanien:keha’ka territory of the Hodinohso:ni, and remains the home of many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. ​​We respect both the land and the people of this land, including all Indigenous People who have walked in this place.

HBBCo. is committed to maintaining a welcoming and safe environment for all people, regardless of age, race, national or ethnic origin, disability, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity and expression.
