The new wave in local cuisine is not new in Peterborough & the Kawarthas. For hundreds of years, the fruits of our centuries-old farmlands and passionate people have been, and continue to be the most important ingredient in our local food scene. Blend that with the area’s long, storied history of brewing connected to Canada’s Treasured Waterway with today’s growing number craft beverage makers and you have the perfect pairing for a mouthwatering experience.

Brewery Discovery Routes

Nine Brewery Discovery Routes showcase Ontario’s independent craft brewers, cideries, distillers, Feast On restaurants, farmers’ markets and the bounty of Ontario and its protected Greenbelt. Curated by a partnership of eighteen food and beverage Associations, tourism organisations and the Greenbelt Fund, the Brewery Discovery Routes Map recommends hand-picked itineraries to help you explore the best of Ontario’s tasty craft beverages and fresh local food.

Ontario’s food system is huge, generating more than $63 billion in sales of local food products each year. Let’s support our farmers and artisanal producers by choosing local more often and contributing to thriving rural economies and the creation of sustainable jobs.

About the Greenbelt

Spanning nearly 2 million acres, the Greenbelt protects the productive farmlands that feed us, the landscapes that clean our water and air, and supports the health and economies of our communities.
