The William Street Family is Growing!

William Street Beer Co. is very excited to welcome two new talented professionals to the brewing team! Both recent graduates from the Niagara College Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Program, these two are committed to elevating our product lineup to world class levels!

Head Brewer Karen Belfry
Karen Belfry is a native of Campbellford and was excited to return to Northumberland County to pursue her passion for brewing great beer. In the role of Head Brewer, she will assume responsibility for all production related issues, recipe development and quality assurance. Karen tends to favour flavourful malt forward brews such as rich porters and stouts for the winter months and refreshing Belgian styles for the warmer months.

Corey Fairs hails from Aurora and comes to Cobourg by way of Niagara. He is a double threat as he combines his brewing experience and education with a healthy culinary resume. We are excited to promote his efforts on the plate as well as in the pint. While working for one of Niagara's premier farm to table restaurants, he was afforded the opportunity to collaborate with area farmers, vintners and brewers to create exciting experiences for guests. Just think what he will be able to do in Northumberland?

It really is an honour to welcome these two gifted young professionals to Northumberland and to our team. Please take some time to visit the brewery, get to know these new additions and make them feel welcome.
