Award Winning Brews since 2015

Brewed to Excellence

The Clifford Brewing Company was launched by brewer Brad Clifford in Hamilton, Ontario in 2015. Brad began brewing beer in the Ontario Craft Beer scene in 2009 and was first acknowledged as an award- winning home-brewer before venturing into commercial brewing with similar success. After many years of commercial craft brewing on a smaller scale and then expanding to contract brewing, in order to distribute his beers across Ontario, Clifford Brewing found a home at 398 Nash Rd. N in Hamilton for a 10,000 sq/ft production facility and taproom which was officially opened in 2018.

Brewing process

Brewing process

Our beers are brewed on a custom designed 35 Hectoliter brew house in East Hamilton using only the highest quality malted barley, hops, water and yeast. We don't cut corners and the quality shows in every glass.

Barrel Aging

Few things taste better than our flagship beer – Clifford Porter, except possibly the same Porter aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels for up to 10 months. We import freshly emptied bourbon barrels and fill them with Porter straight from the vats for an extended aging process imparting all the flavor qualities of the barrel. Only a limited number of bottles are available at anytime.

Pub Services

All our beers are available for purchase at our brewery but many can also be enjoyed at select bars and restaurants across Ontario. If you’re a licensee looking for draft or packaged beer, please contact us to see what’s available.


We take great pride in the high quality of our beers. Many of which have won awards across Canada and North America. We hope you can visit us soon to discover the difference of Clifford beer.
