Chris Pontsioen is the CEO of Silver Smith Brewing. He is originally from Stratford, Ontario and now lives in Niagara-On-The-Lake with his wife and family. Chris became tired of drinking low quality beer, so he took matters into his own hands and started Silversmith, a brand new, small scale brewery. The building was built in late 1800′s and originally used as church. Later, the church was remodelled. The elegant exterior remains intact while the interior was renovated with exposed wooden beams and brick walls. He loves making beer with locally grown fresh ingredients in support of local farmers. All of his batch is fresh, unfiltered, and unpasteurised with no added ingredients or preservatives. He is dedicated to offering you the best brewery experience in Ontario.
