Boxing Rock is the newest in a wave of craft breweries opening their doors around the province. The owners, Emily and Henry, were both engineers by trade and craft beer enthusiasts by passion. After spending a few years testing their brew on a willing group of friends, the pair settled on three inaugural beers and launched their company. The brewery is open year round and offers a tasting room and a retail store, with $10 tours every Friday and Saturday (by reservation only).
