Thornbury Beverage Co. purchased by Colio Wines

colioEssex – Provincial Beverages of Canada, parent company of Thornbury beer and cider brands has been purchased by Colio Estate Wines based in Harrow, ON.

“Colio plans to invest in the existing century old historic facility located in Thornbury Village to create a unique retail and hospitality experience capitalizing on the beautiful views of Georgian Bay and the Blue Mountains,” says the announcement.

In September 2015 King Brewery was rebranded under the Thornbury Beverage Co. banner, four years after Thornbury Village Cidery was purchased by Provincial Beverages.

Colio Estate Wines intends to move the Thornbury Beverage Co. brewery in Nobleton to the Thornbury Village site, amalgamating the cidery and brewery production under the banner of Thornbury Village Brewery and Cidery.

“Plans are underway to open distinct cider and brewery retail stores at this location. Retaining key beer and cider sales and production expertise will ensure the continued growth and success of the Thornbury family of brands,” according to Colio.

Financial terms were not disclosed.
