7/62 Craft Brewers

Where: 162 Russell St, Madoc, ON K0K 2K0, Canada (View Map)

7/62 Craft Brewers honours the ancient craft of beer-making and the history of the community of Madoc. It’s a working brewery but is also a taproom, and a retail store –   We recommend you taste their core brews, like the Canadian Ale or Dark Red, and try one of the specialties, seasonal beers on tap.

“Our mission is to brew “Simply Good Beer” – to avoid faddish extremes and use straightforward processes to produce high-quality beer from simple ingredients and to brew it in styles that appeal to our customers.” 7/62 Craft Brewers
