Barley Days Brewery
From 1860 to 1890 Prince Edward County’s strain of barley was reputed worldwide as the best malting barley available. The brewers in New York State’s appetite for the local barley was in such demand that the grain covered over 1/3 of the areas cultivated farmland. Barley changed the land and economy so much so that the era was forever known as “The Barley Days.”
In 2007 we opened our doors as the first craft brewery in Prince Edward County and continue to brew quality award winning beers year-round. With a focus on local, fresh and sustainable ingredients, Barley Days has been brewing beers true to the history of Prince Edward County while taking beer to a new modern direction. We have 3 staple beers and a variety of seasonal beers to satisfy everyone’s palette. Stop by to browse the store, have a tour and taste, then grab your favourite in a pint and enjoy it on our patio.
