Clifford Brewing Co.

award-winning craft beer

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, then expanding to contract brewing, Clifford Brewing opened shop in Hamilton. Their 10,000 sq./ft. production facility and taproom was officially opened in 2018. Along with the award-winning Clifford Porter and Pinball Wizard, several new beers were put into regular production—many available only at the brewery.

BREWED TO EXCELLENCE

Widely considered one of Ontario’s finest, Clifford Porter has won four Gold Medals and two Silvers in the Canadian and Ontario Brewing Awards.

Our taproom and retail is open, following Ontario’s “Red Zone” COVID-19 rules and standards.

Proud to be named 2019 Canadian Brewery of the Year
