What do the Age of Industry Oatmeal Stout, Checkmate Helles Lager, Mission to Mars American Pale Ale and Dawn of Civilization Wheat have in common? They’re all brewed in Kincardine!

Grey Matter Beer founder Michael Hueftlein named the brewery to honour inventions, inventors, human advancement, and explorers - like you! This stop is a taste bed adventure for the adults – if you end up trying everything on tap (we wouldn’t blame you), stay over and enjoy fabulous accommodation options, white sand at Station Beach, and Kincardine’s Scottish Pipe Band.

Find yourself downtown shopping at West Shore Surf Shoppe, SurfsUp Eco Shop, Penetangear and The Loop to find everything from casual and active wear to everything you’ll need for surfing. SurfsUp Eco Shop offers rentals of Paddleboards and Surfing gear to try out the waves on the Lake Huron coastline. In the evening, you’ll find the Kincardine Pipe Band playing every Saturday night during the summer marching down Queen Street at 8pm sharp – rain or shine and the Phantom Piper playing every night except Saturday during the summer at dusk so order a beverage on one of the outdoor patios or find a spot with a view and take a listen as the sun goes down.
