Taproom


A place to socialize after a run, hike or walk

The in-store taproom offers a wide assortment of craft beer, wine, kombucha, cider and coffee. It serves as the meeting grounds of our store community and store events. It is a place to gather and socialize with friends, meet up for a run, or top off a run with a delicious ontario craft beer. 

While the taproom is a focal point for many BackRoads events and social runs, the taproom can also be booked for group, team or work parties and gatherings. 

BackRoads Hops

It is only natural that two backroad runners in southwestern Ontario have a passion for agriculture. Since the store taproom will be serving local craft beer we want to supply craft breweries with hops. One of our goals is to one day serve beer on tap that has been brewed with hops grown on our farm.

The 2018 harvest of Cascade and Centennial hops was successful from our 1 acre yard we planted in 2017. Contact Aaron at aaron@backroadslondon.com for pricing and orders.

Cascade 2018: Alpha 6.51 Beta: 8.83

Centennial 2018: Alpha 10.3 Beta: 6.99

This summer we completed an expansion of our hop yard from 1 acre to 10 acres. The following varieties will be available in quantities after the 2019 harvest:

Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Magnum and Triple Pearl

Other varieties with limited availability until 2020 include:

Hallertua, Saaz, Ultra, Kent Golding, Galena and a Heritage Hop! (found near Emily's Oma and Opa's hunting camp in the Ottawa Valley).

2018 Cascade in early August

Centennial in early June
