About Us

4 Degrees Brewing Company

about us

4 Degrees Brewing Company is the first brewing company located in Smiths Falls, Ontario where all four owners live and work. Our goal is to bring craft brewing to the heart of the Rideau Canal.

Smiths Falls is centrally located in Eastern Ontario with quick and easy access to larger markets like Kingston, Ottawa and Toronto.

Our two lifestyle beers: True North of 7 and True South of 7 are distinctly unique beers that represent what we love. True North of 7 is an easy drinking Helles Lager with subtle hoppiness undertones. Our True South of 7 is a Red Cream, crisp amber-hued ale with just a hint of caramel undertones.

We are also the only local renter of the Bottoms Up beer dispensing system.

The Owners

The four owners: Nick Ritchie, Andrew Howard, Joe Adams, and Chris Haines, bring over 30 years of friendship and plenty of beer drinking experience to the table. But they also have a passion for their community and developing a successful brewing company that will generate growth and highlight Smiths Falls.

Community involvement as well as promoting Smiths Falls is just as important to us as our beer. We are committed to using local produce and grains as well as establishing local partnerships whenever possible.


We couldn't be happier to announce our partnership with the Toronto Rush & Ottawa Outlaws!
