Northwinds Brewhouse & Kitchen, Collingwood, Ontario
This is the sort of website “About Us” post that makes me really happy!
“Northwinds Brewhouse & Kitchen in Collingwood Ontario creates globally inspired hand crafted beers paired with innovative, locally sourced and seasonally focused food.” It continues, “Our menu and beverage options are carefully designed to treat you and your belly very well. We have two locations and are locally owned and operated. Our menu offerings are made on site, using fresh and local ingredients.”
And it’s true. Local food is no longer the territory of upscale restaurants. Northwinds makes it approachable and available to everyone who chooses to have a good pint from an amazing burger to a heap of jerk pulled pork on an apple cheddar waffle topped with tobacco onions and served with green bean root slaw and kettle chips.
Chef Travis Barron began working in restaurants just outside of Toronto before graduating from George Brown College’s respected Chef’s School. Joining Oliver & Bonacini led him to the dynamic hospitality group’s Blue Mountain restaurant. It’s easy to fall in love with this stunningly beautiful part of Ontario and in 2014 Travis joined Northwinds Brewhouse and Kitchen as part of the opening team, designing his kitchen to work hand in hand with the unique craft beer created in the on-site brewery. He is fully committed to the local food movement but also how the freshest ingredients can be used to create dynamic pairings with the number of craft brews from Northwinds.
