Sawdust City Brewing Company

Sawdust City Brewing Company

On August 1st, 2014, Sawdust City Brewing Company opened its flagship brewery building in downtown Gravenhurst, Ontario, Canada.

The site at 397 Muskoka Road North, formerly a Canadian Tire store, was transformed into a state-of-the-art brewing and canning facility that also encompasses a taproom and retail store.

This milestone in the company's history was the culmination of almost three years of hard work and determination by brewery owners Rob Engman and Karla Dudley-Engman and co-founder and Brewmaster Sam Corbeil. General Manager Rick Dalmazzi joined the team in early 2014 to oversee the growth of the company.

The brewery houses a 24-hectolitre, 4-vessel brewhouse built in Prince Edward Island. In addition, the new facility includes a 1,200 sq. ft. retail store and a 1,600 sq. ft. taproom. The retail store sells all Sawdust City's packaged beer products as well as items from local artisans. The taproom, nicknamed "The Saloon", allows visitors to enjoy Sawdust City's craft beer as well as other beverages.

The company packages its beer in kegs and cans for sale to licensees and consumers. Kegs of draught are shipped to bars and restaurants all over Ontario. Sawdust City's canned beer products are also sold in select LCBO outlet, grocery stores and Beer Store locations.

The company produces six core beer brands and also brews a number of seasonal beers. The flavour profiles range from easy-drinking lagered ales to hoppy pale ales and rich stouts. Sawdust City has a reputation in the industry for its innovative craft beer styles.

In 2014 & 2015, Sawdust City's Lone Pine IPA received the highest honour a craft beer can achieve, by being voted the "Best Beer In Ontario" by the province's brewers at the Ontario Craft Beer Association Golden Tap Awards event in Toronto.
