In their youth, two of Brock St. Brewing Company’s founders spent much of their time in the shops, restaurants, and bars in the area. Brock St. Brewing Company name pays tribute to the historic importance of Brock Street. The Street conveniently intersects old Kingston Road (Hwy 2/Dundas Street/King Street) and was once a stopping point for royalty, prime ministers, and other dignitaries traveling east from Toronto to Kingston, Montreal, or Ottawa.
