Split Rail Brewing Logo

We brew every drop of Split Rail beer on Manitoulin Island at our Gore Bay facility.

Split Rail Brewing Company produces high-quality, small-batch beer and soda on the largest freshwater island in the world – Manitoulin Island.  Founders Andrea Smith & Eleanor Charlton began brewing in a garage in 2010, and opened Manitoulin Island’s first craft brewery in 2015 in Gore Bay, Ontario, with solid community support and a Kickstarter campaign.

We love Manitoulin. Our customers do too. And if you haven’t been here yet, we’ve got a cold beer and a warm greeting waiting for you. Come and experience what we have to offer at our taproom, patio, and retail sales outlet, or ask for naturally craft-brewed Split Rail at establishments near you.
