unitedcraft collage_resize


United Craft’s mantra is “Together is Better” because we believe that, by bringing great people and brands together, we can collectively achieve a lot more. This is especially the case in the craft community as most companies are relatively small and lack “big company” resources.  United Craft aims to connect great craft brewers with retailers and restaurants seeking delicious Ontario Craft beverages.  We combine our knowledge of the industry, propriety data analytics, business planning experience, online licensee web order portal, and province wide sales and event activation team to grow many of Ontario’s emerging brewers. 


We own and currently distribute 12 different craft beers and cider under the brand names of Hops  & Robbers, Old Tomorrow, Eden Grove, Lokal, Double Trouble and (new in May) Highlander Scottish Ale and Blacksmith Smoked Porter.  We are the sales and marketing agent for Market Brewing brands Leslie Crusher and Bear Hug IPA.  Big, foreign competitors are waiting for all of us little guys to run out of steam – but by joining forces to combine resources we can keep fighting.  Together IS better.
