Old Flame Brewery

The historical building housing Old Flame Brewing Co. at our flagship location in Port Perry was originally built in 1874, beginning as the Ontario Carriage Works. It was here where horse-drawn carriages were manufactured locally in the late 19th century. The building also served as a wood shop and blacksmith’s forge during this time. Beginning in the early 1900s, the building changed hands and uses several times. It became home to a Massey-Harris dealership, a shoe factory, a lumber yard, a farm equipment supplier, and a textile factory, before converting to its most recent use as Port Perry’s LCBO, in 1976.

Before settling in our home of Port Perry, our Founder originally sought The Old Fire Hall in Newmarket to house the brewery, before learning it was unfit for occupancy. Port Perry was a town near and dear to his heart, thus pursued the opportunity to open a brewery in the small town. Seven years later, The Old Fire Hall in Newmarket became available for occupancy again. In a twist of fate, Old Flame opened the doors to their second location in December 2020, bringing the story full circle.

Old Flame moved in September 2013 and became dedicated to telling and preserving the building’s rich history. Renovations took 11 months to bring the building back to its original grandeur, and the doors to the brewery finally opened.
