A recent addition to the burgeoning Windsor craft beer scene, Frank Brewing Co. won a silver for their Big Harvest in the Dunkelweizen category.

It’s an exciting time in Windsor-Essex for craft beer lovers as more of our breweries are gathering provincial and national attention and several more breweries are in the works.

These wins just ramp up the anticipation for the 2016 Windsor Craft Beer Festival on October 14-15.
