One of Huron County’s more popular craft breweries has proven to be Square Brew in Goderich, which offers refreshing and experimental beers to the masses in Huron County’s biggest town.
Square Brew offers a range of full-time beers, as well as a handful of rotating seasonal offerings.
The Parsons Court location, which is not near Goderich’s famed Square, despite the brewery’s name, has been a beacon for those seeking a good time in Goderich.
At the time of this printing, Square Brew was offering free delivery in several areas based on a schedule, and a pickup window option. For more information, visit its website at squarebrewco.com.
2nd Streetlight Estate Winery, which is located on Hwy. 8 between Clinton and Goderich, takes its name from the fact that it is at the second streetlight from town in both directions!
The company currently has six wines in its collection, with three more scheduled for release this summer.
The property is ideal as a destination winery. It is set back on a 500-metre driveway that sets the tone as it winds its way to the winery through the vineyards. The expansive building has stunning views of the Maitland River valley and the Kilgour Tract, a property managed by the Maitland Valley Conservation Authority.
The building’s interior features pieces, by local artists. that are also for sale. The space is ideal for events, but is waiting for the COVID-19 restrictions to ease. In the meantime, the retail space is open with physical distancing protocols in place. Curbside pick-up and free local delivery is available.
