Black Swan Brewing is located in downtown stratford with some great beers. We stopped by while in stratford for a tasting flight and enjoyed the beers. Staff was friendly and very informative about the beers and tastes. Well worth a stop to enjoy some beers.

Had to stop in here to grab some of their Porter brew. Had it the day before in a local pub and wanted some to take home. Great staff there. Thanks.

The Black Swaw Brewery is a fantastic place to go for a craft beer. The staff is terrific. Great samplers. I would recommend the Swan to anyone and everyone visiting Stratford. My hat is off to all of the staff at the Swan.

Awesome spot to drop by for a beer. Grab a table if you can and just relax with a cold beer. It's decently priced and has a chill atmosphere. Not too many tables but there's standing room and it's right downtown so the location rocks....More

I always get 1 or 2 growlers of Road Trip when I can find an excuse to go here. I love that the beer is good and local to us.

Some really good ales; I especially like the Scotch ale offerings, when available. Or any red ale. Or any of their ales. It's pretty spartan, but you can see the whole brewery right in front of you. Great beers brewed on the premises.
