Due to the effects of COVID-19, many of our breweries and distilleries are operating with low contact options. During these times we encourage you to contact in advance if you plan to visit, and indoor space may be limited or not offered.

Many of our breweries and distilleries are offering delivery and curb side pick up options in addition to the bottle shop purchase locations. To access a list of options currently being offered in Windsor Essex by our #BarrelTrail partners please click here.

Effective Friday June 26th at 12:01am, anyone entering a commercial business must wear a face mask in Windsor & Essex County. You are also required to provide your name and contact information for potential contact tracing in the future.
