An Opposite-of-Retirement Retirement Project

Rurban (i.e., Rural + Urban) Brewing, proudly located in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada, is the retirement project of a husband and wife with a long history in brewing. Along the way, they've been lucky enough to find some awesome employees, fantastic customers, supportive community, and friends that help them make the world a better and more inclusive place through beer.

Unfiltered + Unpasteurized

Beer, like artisanal bread, charcuterie, or cheese, is meant to be living --- not subjected to unlisted chemicals or hazardous materials. If our beer says "keep cold, drink fresh," treat it as you would any other artisanally fermented product. If it doesn't, go ahead and cellar it if you wish.

Small By Design

We're not looking to build an empire here --- we are local to Cornwall, Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, and Akwesasne. We have a retail shop, where we offer cans, growlers, locally-made products, and other merchandise.

And the Beer?

Over 20 years of brewing experience, training, awards, and a deep science and art background make for some fine and unique creations. But don't take our word for it --- stop in the shop and try what's available for yourself. We'll be happy to let you know about other Cornwall and area gems while you're here.

Keeping it Honest

Unlike many operations, we don't send freebies to influencers, beer writers, or the like in return for endorsement. We don't do illegal perks for our accounts. We don't respond well to requests for free or discounted product predicated on "exposure," growth, "brewery X does it," races to the bottom, undercutting, or any other BS (again, see illegal perks). We don't gouge our retail customers so we can undercut colleagues at our tap accounts. We promote a culture of inclusion, honesty, and acceptance, not denigration, objectification, sexism, elitism, or other hype. We sell great beer at a reasonable price, not a lifestyle. We don't yap about supporting local; we actually do it. We have always made all our creations, ourselves, on-site, professionally. We have never had another brewery pretend to be us, and we never will.

Be wary of any entity that does otherwise.

Online Store

Click here to go to our online store. We currently only sell wearables there, owing to wanting to preserve the quality of our beer before it gets to the customer, which is impossible if the beer sits in a too-hot or too-cold delivery truck over a weekend before it gets to its destination.
