Our mission is to refresh the community.

Upstreet Craft Brewing started as most beer companies do — a few buds sitting around slugging back homebrew and talking big game of dropping it all to open a brewery of our own. Before we knew it we were in too deep to turn back and just kept going until we began to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Turns out it was the best idea we ever had.

Truth be told, this whole ride really started years ago when Hogie brewed his first batch of beer. He kickstarted an obsession back in 2006 that would drive him to create hundreds of batches, brewed in kitchens, barns, backyards and basements; some great ones, some “interesting” ones, and some crazy ones. Many people have tasted Hogie’s homebrews over the years, and his party trick became something of a local legend.

It wasn’t until a few years later when we all got together that the pieces all started falling into place and things began to escalate quickly. We had no idea what we were doing, still don’t really, but planning and support from a lot of amazing people have helped us face countless challenges that popped up along the way.

Today, Upstreet is a B-Corp certified company with three locations across two provinces, a line of craft sodas, and beer on shelves in all four Atlantic provinces. We hope to continue to grow and refresh our communities.
