A lot of places talk locavore; we live it. And it’s a year-round commitment touching on every aspect of what we do here. We source a good portion of our produce on property for much of the year, thanks to our extensive farm-garden and geodesic growing dome. But for our innovative team of culinary professionals under the direction of Alain Van Den Meerssche, that only makes it easier to be creative. The result: authentic, place-based cuisine that’s sophisticated yet unpretentious, drawing on local ingredients and multicultural influences. It fits with Canada—and is truly representative of this place in the world.
Whether it’s bergamot flower-lemon peel-brined poached halibut wrapped in a pretty Swiss chard package or something conjured with shiso, lemon grass or poppies, you’re in expert hands.
Food equals passion for Executive Chef Alain Van Den Meerssche, who has spent his life surrounded by the work of growing, preparing and serving great food. For the chef and his team of talented culinary creatives, second only to putting together delectable, place-based dishes is sharing them with others. Prepare to be delighted.
Even non-foodies will marvel at our two-acre bluff-top farm-garden, a terraced cornucopia of creeping bean vines, giant purple cabbages, corn stalks, sprawling pumpkins and squashes, rows of tidy green carrot tops and five-foot-high fuschia bergamot. Then there’s the geodesic dome, a 42-foot-wide, 17-foot-high solar-heated growing space and veritable jungle of hot house tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and eggplant reaching some 10 feet up towards the triangular polycarbonate plastic ceiling panels.
It’s all part of our 12-month sustainability program and a huge source of pride. Everything—our plastics, composting, recycling—plays a role. We compost all wedding and corporate event food waste, which goes back into the soil. It’s what makes our flowers so pretty and our vegetables so flavourful. We harvest produce for our kitchen year-round, supplying 100% during the growing season.
Clinking glasses doesn’t get more fun and festive than at The Brew Creek Centre. We collaborate with you to design a custom beverage program best suited to your guests and needs. Our expertly trained staff will help you pair your menu with wines and spirits at exceptional value, and our full-service bar has everything you need to celebrate!
Of course we’ve got bubbly to add sparkle to your toasts, winter warmers and brunch boosters like Grapefruit Ginger Mimosas and Caesars with our homegrown spicy kimchi and green beans.
We can also create custom cocktails, or a traditional family favourite like Maple Whiskey Sours or Fresh Cucumber Basil Collins. Or what about a signature drink from where the bridal couple met? Say, a Coconut Lime Mojito? We can suggest original garnishes from our Growing Dome, too—anything with pretty flowers and fresh seasonal herbs. Cheers to that!
“The Brew Creek Centre was a dream come true. Hidden in the woods is a moment in your life you will not want to miss and that everyone will talk about for the rest of time.”
“Your attention to detail is flawless, your service is world class, the food is UNREAL—it is 100% magic. It could not have been more perfect!”
“As a world traveller and event planner, my experience at The Brew Creek Centre was breathtaking, spectacular, stunning, memorable, hospitable, helpful, open and generous.”
“From the beginning of our wedding planning to our big day, the staff at Brew Creek has been outstanding. The food is next-level farm-to-table, the property is serene and beautiful (rain or shine!), the accommodations heavenly and homey—a true gem in the woods. We wouldn’t have had our wedding anywhere else.”
“We were completely blown away by just how personable and willing to help everyone was. The rooms and grounds are beyond beautiful and far exceeded all expectations. Many guests (said) they’ve never been to a more beautiful wedding location.”
“The catering team had many compliments that the food was, if not the best ‘wedding food,’ some of the best people have ever eaten.”
“We can’t thank you enough for your beautiful eye for detail, incredible candor under pressure and unwavering support in the lead up to and during our special weekend.”
“The staff was so genuinely excited for our nuptial celebration. Friends of ours got engaged on the morning of our big day and loved Brew Creek so much they are now getting married there next year, too! If you need to get away and immerse yourself in nature, this is the spot for you.”
“We had an absolutely amazing time, as did our guests, and many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended. The food, setting and accommodations were absolutely perfect.”
