Art + Brewing

Collective Arts Brewing is a grassroots craft brewery that aims to fuse the creativity of craft beer with the inspired talents of emerging artists and musicians. Collective Arts Brewing was founded on two beliefs: The first that creativity fosters creativity. And the second, that creativity yields delicious pints. We feature limited-edition works of art on our beer cans and labels, and we work to make sure the liquid on the inside is as diverse and creative as the artists we profile.

Our brewery is located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This is where we brew everything from our flagship IPA Ransack the Universe to our World Beer Cup-winning Stranger than Fiction porter. In our taproom we pour up to 10 different beers at one time, samples and flights, we host brewery tours and live entertainment weekly. Stop by to see our beer bottle gallery showcasing every artist we’ve worked with in the past.

Near Lake Ontario in an old industrial/refinery area. Like the cans; there is art work all over. They have a rather large beer garden and large open space inside next to the brewing and canning operations. They had a stage set up for the weekend so not sure what the normal inside looks like. People were very friendly at the beer garden and at the “to go” store. They also serve beer at the “to go” store. The beer was very enjoyable and had a very pleasant stop. Bought 4 varieties of origin of darkness to go.

Qual - Beer is very good

F - n/a

Ser - My tender was great. Informative. Cooperative. Poured me a half beer for half the price.

Sel - Great selection on tap plus others in the can. Hoppy, malty, darkness, sour, cider and gin.

Stopped in alone while traveling. Very nice staff was informative and helpful. Beers were all great and varied, including many that were seasonal and unavailable in the US.

Amazing place, a tad out of the way, but its the perfect spot. Great community of beer, music and art folks. Their love for beer shines in every brew as does their outside the box approach to life. So much cool art to look at and explore while drinking beers. Staff is great, well versed in all things cool, hip and trendy and very knowledgeable when it comes to the things they love. Literally a palace of passion to the arts and brewing.

Stopped in today, was going to have a flight, but was pretty packed so just picked up a selection of beers not available in the LCBO. Very friendly and helpful staff, and one of the coolest local breweries given their pairing of art and great beer. Working my way through the beer I bought today, looking forward to my next visit.
