Things have definitely taken longer than expected. We have had a lot of delays, and some hiccups along the way, but everything looks like it has finally fallen into place. Licencing is under control, and we have a functional brewhouse now (which we will be testing this weekend). A few more things to do before the whole brewery is completely operational, but we will be brewing soon, and selling shortly after.

Thanks again for the tour guys!

If your homebrew is any indication of things to come, the local beer geeks are going to love it. I'm looking forward to my next visit (when you have some stuff on tap).

as one of the local geeks I can say I don't think I have ever been more excited about a brewery opening. I predict on the second anniversary of this thread in Mar 2017, we'll be reflecting on Barncat's incredible success as an Ontario craft brewer.
Like so many, I am looking forward to this!
No pressure guys! ;-)

Any chance you guys will open an online shop and ship beers like this new brewery:

Would love to try your products but I won't get out to Cambridge often.

We probably won't be doing that any time in the near future. Just growler fills at our brewery for now.
