Meet Gretta, Bill and Rick from Meyers Creek Brewing


Meet Gretta and Bill Barnwell and Richard Stinchcombe, co-owners of
Meyers Creek Brewing Company

The story starts in 2016 with friends, food and drinks. Both Bill and Gretta were creating beer and wine for their own enjoyment at home, as was Rick.  As it turned they were all dreaming about one day owning a brewery.

It was over a potluck dinner that the entrepreneurial spirit was lifted, and the inspiration for Meyers Creek Brewing Company was born.  Read more about their story…

The Chamber recently had the opportunity to visit the trio on site and hear the story first-hand.  Check out the video below to learn how they managed to open a brewery during a pandemic, how plans had to change and what is in store for the future.  

Fate may have had a hand in choosing their location at 60 Dundas St. East.  During the renovation a newspaper from 1919 was found with a front-page headline “Organized Labour Asks For Beer With 6 per cent Alcohol”.   Read more about this discovery

They are brewing and baking in a historical building at the corner of Church St. and Dundas St. East in Belleville.  Beer bread and Vanilla Porter Crazy Cake could be on your menu.   Shop online for beer, merchandise and egift cards, pickup or take some time and relax on the patio Thursday to Sunday.  

Follow them on facebook, Instagram and Twitter and visit to discover what’s brewing.
