Brewery
Collective Arts Brewing is a grassroots craft brewery that aims to fuse the creativity of craft beer with the inspired talents of emerging artists and musicians. Collective Arts Brewing was founded on two beliefs: The first that creativity fuels creativity. And the second, that creativity yields delicious pints. We feature limited-edition works of art on our beer cans and labels, and we work to make sure the liquid on the inside is as diverse and creative as the artists we profile.

Everything was wonderful!! Obviously during COVID times it's hard to go out, but the Beer Garden was super enjoyable. We happened to go on a cold day, but the outdoor heaters were awesome and definitely made it possible to sit outside. We ordered a few different drinks (the hard teas, and the Guava beer) and they were delicious. Our server (Kyle, I think??) was very nice and knowledgeable and recommended a few options. The food was absolutely delicious-- we got the tater tots with the different sauces, the wurst sausage, and the snitzel melt which was TO DIE FOR! Very generous portions, but not too big. Even the outdoor bathrooms were heated, had warm water, and were clean. Overall, a wonderful experience, and we can't wait to go back and try more stuff on the menu!

The Collective Arts Brewery is an oasis - hidden in a pretty industrial area of Hamilton, as soon as you walk-in you feel transported to a big-city downtown core, but still get to enjoy the surround tranquility of a smaller town. The beer is fantastic - nothing better than the Guava Gose - and the food was off the hook, way surpassed our expectations (delicious, creative, unpretentious, great size portions and very reasonably priced). Service was super friendly and just the right amount of attention and information. All in all a very cool experience - would recommend for sure for a casual chill date with friends!

Collective Arts Beergarden was magical! They created a cool, very chic, very zen like experience. From the twinkle lights, to the colourful patio seats, right down to the local art covering the wall, you will not be disappointed! Did I mention the beer?! TOPS! They also did a fantastic job physically distancing patrons from each other and were sanitizing as soon as people left for the night. They also provided their own sanitizer at each table and ensured everyone felt safe and comfortable. Great job everyone! Thank you for a wonderful evening, cannot wait to come back.

We have been to the beer garden several times during Covid both for events or just a night out. Food and beverages are always fabulous and the atmosphere is great. Also very safe with good protocols in place, I highly recommend coming here for a night out.

Delicious food from the food truck, great drinks from CA, and so nice to be safely around other people. Lots of space between tables and a good mix of sunny and shady spots. Service was fast, friendly, and safe.

Another great experience at the Collective Arts brewery in Hamilton. We appreciated how spaced out each table was and that there was hand sanitizer at our table. Staff were friendly and courteous (as always) and we loved the ambiance of the outdoor patio!

Food was amazing - love Get your own Taters!

Great hip place to go. Beer and cider was excellent. So nice to be able to sit outside. Server was super friendly and attentive. Thank you for such a great experience! Great to be able to have a little bite with your beer. The brussel sprouts were the best I've ever had.

Our server was very lackluster and didn't really help when asking for what drinks we should try. Wasn't really that attentive and didn't seem to care. Overall everyone else made up for his lack of personality.

I absolutely love Collective Arts beer and thought that this would be a great get together with my partner and son. It was a chilly night, but we dressed accordingly. Service was good.. food variety... well, I would highly recommend the loaded tatter tots, but they got my order wrong and I ended up with vegetarian tacos which were yucky! In order to serve food, they need more food trucks and better variety! That would be my recommendation.. more food and some heaters! 🥶

Sunday dinner for two!

It was our first time checking out Collective Arts Brewery, and we were excited to visit because we had sampled so many of the beers from the LCBO. The patio was open, and we sat at a picnic table. We shared beers and some food truck food (steak tacos, chicken quesadilla and buffalo cauliflower poutine) which was great! Nice patio, artistically designed with good service. Will return for a Brew tour post Covid.

The tacos were enjoyed by all but the steak sandwich was a little lacking in flavour and the bun got soggy. Needs a crispier heartier bread.
