To our loyal customers and friends, this is a challenging time. It is also a time of reflection, adaptation and reboot. Our brewery has always been about the North and about the region in which it is located.


Highlander Brew Co. will be undergoing a name change over the next few weeks. We will be updating the brewery name to South River Brewing Co. to better reflect our location and heritage within the community & region.


South River Brewing will continue to make the great beers that you have enjoyed, only under a new banner. Over time, we will be releasing an entirely new line of beers alongside our traditional styles. Highlander branded Scottish Ale and Smoked Porter will continue to be made available at your local LCBO and grocery store.


When regulations and conditions warrant, the brewery will continue to be open to anyone in the community free of charge for any events. Our program of artists and musicians will start up as soon as possible.


The brewery will offer a special beer and take out food program. This program will be undertaken in conjunction with the Fresh Mart kitchen who will be making dinner packages designed for the brewery. We will continue to update you about our take out program.

South River Brewing Company relies heavily on the support of the people in the surrounding community. In these special times this support is even more important. We thank you for being loyal to us and we promise to continue to do our best to offer new beverages and a warming environment (once we reopen our doors to the public).


For now, our beer can be purchased online and delivered to your home or office from our current website:
