Overview

Ontario's original destination brewery--housed in an old church built in 1894. Home of the multi-award-winning Black Lager and many other fine brews. Not only do we offer beer to enjoy here and bottles for you to take home, but also, our beer hall kitchen serves up a tasty small menu of wings and sandwiches, and small nibbles to round-out the Silversmith experience.

We drop in to Silversmith often. The music is great. The building is amazing. Having said that, service sucks. Today for instance...I asked if they were still serving wine. “Yes”, the young man at the bar said! He never told me what it was!!! A...More

My wife and I went here on our first full day in Niagara falls. I got the black lager and it was delicious. The food is pretty good as well, mainly some light snacks to get you through.

THIS BREWERY WAS OUR FAV! It’s in a old church, so cool. The beer was seriously the BEST. The food was even delicious. We had the flight, mac and cheese and the bonobos (sp?)

Haha, Thank you for the enthusiastic review! I think you are referring to the amazing bibimbap, a Korean inspired rice dish (also my fav). We appreciate your support, and hope you can come by and visit again sometime soon! Cheers :)

Definitely Silversmith! Black Lager is an exceptional beer and the atmosphere and food are really great. Hopefully their new patio will be open for your visit.
