We are a small, independently owned craft brewery in Niagara.
Since 2011, Silversmith has been brewing high-quality award-winning character beers.
In a church that dates back to the 1890s, full of rustic charm with exposed beams and brick walls, a bar handmade from reclaimed barn wood from around the corner, you can now marvel over its character as you enjoy a pint of one of our tasty beers.
This space is now home to not only a Brewery and Beer Hall, but also passionate and knowledgeable folks who are itching to guide you through an incredible beer experience like none other.
Silversmith proudly redefines not only the craft beer experience but tourism in Niagara. We’ve created a space where travelers and locals alike meet and seek refuge over a delicious brew.
It wasn’t long after settling in Niagara-on-the-Lake to raise his family, that our co-founder Chris Pontsioen recognized that is was challenging to find a great pint in Canada’s largest wine region. Armed with the passion to change that, and the drive to make it happen, Silversmith Brewing Company was founded, in 2011.
Chris comes from a respected lineage of Dutch silversmiths dating back to the 1580s. Like silversmithing, brewing great beer is fastidious work—doing it right requires an unwavering pursuit of excellence and genuine respect for the traditions of our predecessors. Excelling in it takes dedication, creativity, and risk. The success of our award-winning Black Lager is testament to this endeavour – traditional, yet unexpected, it’s become our standard for quality and the embodiment of all we stand for.
