Sons Of Kent Come Home To Craft BeerMay 26, 2017 11:00am
Hang on to your mugs, Sons of Kent Brewing Company is set to open June 17.
It’s located at the old, iconic Chatham Cinema on Adelaide St. at King St.
Co-founder Colin Chrysler says him and his three partners, Alf Hunter, Doug Hunter and Tim Copeland, are putting the finishing touches on the building and all are welcome when the space opens in three weeks.
“The June 17 weekend we’ll have a big ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday and then that weekend we’ll have an open house where we’ll invite everybody in Chatham-Kent to come check out the brewery, we’ll have some tours and you’ll be able to sample some beer and take beer home with you as well,” says Chrysler.
The 29 year old Chrysler says it’s a labour of love for the four founders from Chatham-Kent.
The Erieau native thanks the community for all of its support and says they’re currently hiring.

Chrysler says there will be eight craft beers on tap to start that will also be available at some Chatham-Kent bars and restaurants.
“I believe we have a beer for everybody regardless if you’re a beer lover or you want to try some new things. We have some lighter style beers all the way to some really hop forward, darker styles, and some really big stuff with tons of flavour that’s a little more creative. We added some pretty unique spices to some of the beers as well,” Chrysler says.
Chrysler says the goal is to get Chatham-Kent excited about the product and then expand to Windsor, Sarnia, London and beyond.
“As time goes on I anticipate us getting more involved in LCBO, Beer Store, more retail outlets like that as well and eventually conquering the Province of Ontario and maybe someday even Canada,” says Chrysler.
