Bad Apple Brewing Company Ltd.Bad Apple Brewing Company Ltd.Contact: Sarah & Jason Ingram
Bad Apple Brewing Co. started out in 2014 as a ferment on premises.
Jason Ingram, Bad Apple’s brewer and owner, developed a passion for home brewing and enjoyed passing it on to customers. Jason being a sheet metal tradesman and Sandy, his dad, being a welder worked over 2014 and 2015 to manufacture a larger brewing system that allowed them to change their licensing.
In 2016, Bad Apple became a Beer Manufacturer with a brewery retail store. In 2018 they were able to upgrade their system once again, this time to a 15 hecta- litre brewhouse. We are a true craft brewery experimenting and improving beer recipes with each batch.
We are located on a small apple orchard on highway 21 just north of St. Joseph’s, Ontario. We are 10 minutes north of Grand Bend and 15 minutes south of Bayfield. Our brewery is in our beautiful century barn. Although once inside you would never know it, if it weren’t for the exposed barn beams.
Customers are welcome to walk through the orchard to take pictures with the blossoms in the spring and we have apple picking in the Fall through our sister company Ingram’s Apple Orchard.
Come for a taste, leave with an experience!
