We recently wrote about how and why we need to rally around our local artists this year. And, of course, that extends well beyond just muscians and artists. There’s never been a more crucial time to support your local businesses, whether you live in Streetsville, Malton, Lorne Park, or Mineloa.

Local businesses are the heart and soul of Mississauga. Despite being an ever-growing city, we strive to hold onto our identity through our grassroots. And if we want that to stay true, then we need to continue to support those local businesses during this tought time. Instead of ordering your favourite beers from LCBO or other big stores, you should check out these local breweries.

World’s Finest Beer & Wine Co.

The World’s Finest Beer & Wine Company is Streetsville’s very-own answer to a local brewery. The company has been a staple of Streetsville since 1991, serving incredible beer and wines.

World’s Finest offers eight regular beers, 28 premium beers, and a dozen super premium beers. As well as over 50 red, white, Zinfandel, and speciality wines. There’s plenty to choose from but we have to recommend the Mississauga Diamon beer, for obvious reasons. And the best part is, you can brew the beer yourself!

And our final shout-out for a local brewery keeping the fires burnign is the Old Credi Brewing Company in Port Credit.
