Founded in 2015, long-time friends Todd Barber and Dave Beifuss, made their dream a reality when they cracked open the doors to Kame & Kettle Beer Works in Fonthill, Ontario. The brewery received its name with a tip of the hat to the local topography, featuring the Fonthill Kame. In nature, kames are often associated with kettles and since Fonthill lacks a glacially formed kettle, we say our beer kettle completes this partnership.
Eager to start, Dave and Todd fired up a 50L brewhouse and fermented with wine demijohns. This process is truly small batch and about as handmade as it gets. The taproom was carved out of the lower level of a downtown Fonthill building, where expansion has been ongoing ever since.
We source our ingredients and conduct our commerce locally when possible.
Attention to process, use of fine ingredients, have allowed us to experiment with over 100 different beer styles to date. On tap you will find a selection of tasty ales, usually 8 or more, mirrored by our retail fridge offerings, freshly canned 946ml Crowlers and 473ml tallboys.
We are the community’s brewery, and we strive to represent it well, with pride.
