About Haven Brewing Co.

Haven Brewing Company is the evolution of the Smithavens Brand. While Smithavens was meant to be a Haven for people named Smith, Haven will be a safe Haven for all. This is embodied in three key aspects of the brand:

The Beer, the Location, and the Community that is Peterborough.

The Beer

Our Beer is a Haven in the craft beer industry. We brew traditional European beers in the traditional European way with bottle conditioning and all. These recipes are based on styles that have existed for hundreds of years. And there’s a reason they have stuck around so long. They’re good! With these beers, you get what you expect. Delicious tasting beer, no surprises. And so, they are a Haven in the industry full of people trying weird new things that you might not enjoy, but find out too late. Who wants to spend $5 on a beer to not enjoy drinking it?


The Location is a Haven here in Peterborough. While we are just a little out of the way in an industrial complex, we see this as a strength as opposed to an issue. We are easy to access and not far from downtown. However, in our location, you would never know that you’re in the middle of a city. With our green space in the back and the absolutely beautiful Harper Park next door, you can come visit us and feel like you’re out at the cottage enjoying a beer on the dock – without having to leave the city. Our brewery is all about that comfortable, safe feeling. We want you to feel at home when you visit us.


Then the third part – and a big one at that – is the community here in Peterborough. We at Haven Brewing Company are all about supporting the community and being a contributing part of it. Because of that, Peterborough was a no-brainer. There is no other city out there quite like it, where you have everything you need in the city and yet it still has that small-town feeling. There is a sense of community here, with people focusing on supporting local and also being very green-minded, keeping the environment healthy with all it has to give.
