How do you say Rurban?
For us, Rurban rhymes with Bourbon or Turban, but we really don't care. Say it however you want. There are harder things to say ;)
Do you offer samples and tours?
We have always held a "try before you buy" philosophy in our retail shop, and so offer samples from the same cans and batch as the ones in the store. Impromptu tours are available if we are not too busy; otherwise, we are happy to try and arrange tours on request. There is no charge for samples or tours.
Where can we buy Rurban beer?
Cans, kegs, and sale-by-the-glass are available at our retail shop. Cans and draft for present consumption are available at our local supporters.
Do you do Growlers?
Nope - we do 473 mL (16 oz) cans instead, all packaged on site.
How should the beer be kept?
Keep them cold (i.e., sub 50F/10C), and drink them fresh. Our beer is neither pasteurized nor filtered, so treat it like you would a high-end deli meat ;)
Why isn't Rurban available in the LCBO or Beer Store?
We're not looking to build an empire here. We are an independent, small-batch, brick-and-mortar brewery in Cornwall that has always said our mandate is Cornwall and SD&G. We are small. We don't have a CEO, marketing department, analytics department, customer retention strategist, or conglomerate directing us. We have never contracted out production of our beer to have another brewery pretend they're us, and we never will.
Why isn't Rurban at more festivals?
See the above. We support many local festivals and initiatives in Cornwall and SD&G.
