Great Beer
Bench Brewing Company is proudly situated in the benchlands of the Niagara Escarpment. Home to Ontario’s finest agricultural lands, our farmhouse approach to craft brewing will capture the unique terroir of the region just as it does for wine. Breathing new life into the historic Maple Grove Schoolhouse in Beamsville, our site features a three-acre hops field, a barrel-aging and wild ale program, a taproom, beer garden and food kitchen. We invite you to visit our brewery, experience the charm of the region, and taste the beer from wine country.

My husband and I both work in healthcare and this was our first date evening since Covid has started due to crazy schedules. Bench never disappoints! It’s one of our very favourite spots, the food and beer are both equally amazing. We had made reservations when the brewery initially reopened and they honoured those which was amazing! Terrific job everyone!

Food was great!! The social distancing and Covid procedures that are in place are strictly followed and made us feel comfortable. The only thing we were sad about was that it was too busy to have a sample of a certain beer. Other than that great place to eat at!

Safe with solid service. Taking the extra time to develop safe service protocol before opening resulted in a seamless and very enjoyable dining experience. Too: when checking in have more than 1 in your party access the menu via QR code or you’ll end up passing your phone to everyone.

Had lunch here just after they reopened in July with the new safety measures in place. The staff were knowledgeable and went above and beyond to ensure you felt comfortable dining with them. The food and beer were fabulous as always. The new additional outdoor dining section was set up so well. Service was great. Will definitely be back numerous times over the summer.

Bench is one of my all time favourite places to go. I love coming here and catching up with my friends over delicious food and even better beer. The staff is always so friendly and easy going. The vibe is just so perfect, especially in the evening when the sun is setting perfectly in front of the patio. I love bench brewery!

Great experience during the COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurants have just opened and everyone doing their best with keeping up with new health standards.
Bench brewery Co. is no exception. COVID-19 questioner done properly, hand sanitization for all the guests, wiping high contact areas constantly, staff wearing masks and instructing the guests on all the proper health protocols.
Great job everyone!👍🏻

Food was awesome. BEST nachos I’ve ever had, not greasy, no excessive cheese, great sauce with brisket which comes with it, sort of pickled jalapeño peppers! Just yum. Also had wings, which comes with great asian influenced sauce, very lightly spiced. Nice touch.

Beer is really good too. Nice variety of flavours and is very well balanced!

I would definitely come back here again.
