Steam Whistle Brewing
Head Office: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Steam Whistle, an independent brewery housed in Toronto’s historic John St. Roundhouse just south of the CN Tower, has a singular focus: we make just one beer of exceptional quality that Canadians can be proud of. We brew our refreshing Pilsner with traditional brewing methods and only four, natural ingredients including spring water, malted barley, hops and yeast - all GMO-free. There is a fifth ingredient in every refreshing bottle, and that is the passion of our dedicated Brewmaster and staff.
Founded in 1998 and opened in 2000, the brewery was named Steam Whistle, drawing from the inspirational sounds of steam rushing from factory whistles, signaling the end of a fulfilling workday and a time for personal reward. Steam-powered whistles were icons of the 1950's, a golden era of progress and prosperity, when things were built to last and people enjoyed the simple things in life. It was a time when the marketing of goods relied on a relationship of trust between manufacturers who produced quality goods and consumers who eagerly rewarded genuine results. Steam Whistle was founded on these forgotten principles.
The brewery is housed in The Roundhouse, once home to the steam locomotives that helped pioneer our nation. An architectural gem designated a National Historic Site in 1993, The Roundhouse was thoughtfully renovated prior to opening its doors in May of 2000, restoring 30 ft. ceilings, grand multi-paned windows and hand-hewn Douglas Fir beams. Steam Whistle welcomes more than 40,000 visitors each year who come to the Roundhouse for a tour or to attend one of the many on site events and art shows.
Steam Whistle Pilsner is shipped fresh to hundreds of Ontario Beer Stores, LCBO outlets and licensed bars and restaurants, and we are growing, now shipping beer to Alberta as part of our focus on being Canada’s Premium Pilsner. Critics have honoured us with many awards over the years, and proudly, our independently-owned brew is now one of the top ten selling premium brands in Ontario Beer Stores.
