Given that Stratford is seen as the cultural and culinary epicenter of Ontario (at least that is what I gather), I was always surprised that the craft beer scene there never really "took off", so to speak.
Back when I was a beer drinker,I recall a time when I tried, in vein, to visit the Stratford Brewery. It was closed for the day. Since we had made our way up from London, we decided to go for a pint beforte leaving town....we never did find a place that had anothing other than Stratford Pilsner.
Glad it has improved at least somewhat.
