Our Journey

Our passion for brewing good beer came from years of “researching” what good beers are out there. This took a whole lot of drinking but we were up for the challenge and had miraculously spent our entire adult lifetime researching (we keep telling each other we deserve a doctorate in beer sampling but are unsure who’d bestow this honor upon us). Our goal is to make the best beers possible. With a steady core of our regular beers and an ever-changing choice of seasonal beers, Full Beard Brewing will use the best ingredients we can get our hands on.

Our History

Timmins Proud

With a great team of brewers who love to see where they can take beer, we look forward to introducing some creative recipes that will leave you talking and wanting more. Full Beard Brewing Co. is Timmins first craft brewery and opened its doors on January 30 th , 2017 and we couldn’t be prouder to share our passion for brewing and our delicious beers with great friends and great friends-to-be. The brewery offers a unique atmosphere and our tasting room offers a view of the entire brewery operation area. You will be able to see every from brewing area, fermenters, our canning machine and the growler cleaning and filling Station area. The City of Timmins has demonstrated incredible support for the brewery and it has quickly become the place to Be!
