Fun Workplace with many great people!
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) –  Kenora, ON5 September 2019
Days are typically very busy, but that helps the time go by so much faster and there is great table turn over which is beneficial for making more money. Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming but there is a lot of great staff/managers that are very helpful! There are so many great people to work with, we are like a giant family that also hangs out outside of the workplace. Managers are easy to talk to if there is ever something to bring up to them. Working here over the past few years has been so very enjoyable and I've learned a lot about beer and have improved my customer service skills.

A wonderful place to work
Server and Bartender (Current Employee) –  Kenora, ON3 September 2019
Working at brewco is like coming to work everyday to hang out with family and make money doing so. Everyone is so supportive, understanding and pleasant. It is hard work but it pays off 10 fold through job incentives and bonuses. I love the place and suggest it to anyone has a place to work and a place to play.

Worst employer ever
Manager (Former Employee) –  Kenora, ON28 August 2019
They are the worst employer in Canada. Owner is a ignorant looser. High turn over no work life balance you are the slave to the most ignorant family on the planet. Plus they edit there reviews.
Run away.

Amazing company & even better staff!
Designer (Current Employee) –  Kenora, ON1 February 2019
Lake of the Woods Brewery is an amazing place to work!! I moved away from home for the first time for this job and since I have been here it has been the best experience. The staff and managers that work here make you feel like family. Management is always giving opportunities to take on more responsibility and provide support to excel in your field of work. They give their staff generous discounts in both the Retail Store (beer, clothing) and the Taproom (food, event tickets etc.) Highly recommend.
Pros
Generous staff discounts, Positive work environment, Fun events & activities

Fun, fair company culture with opportunities to 'climb the ladder'
Sales (Current Employee) –  Kenora, ON18 January 2019
Exciting and fun company to work for. The owners/management set goals for their team and reward accordingly, in addition to perks like discounts on products and beer, staff parties, and incentives. The owners promote from within when possible so many of us have taken on new roles since starting with the brewery.
The hardest part of the job is keeping up with pace of working in this industry, as it can be busy and stressful, especially through the summer months. The most enjoyable parts of the job are coworkers and obviously, the beer. Overall, BrewCo offers rewarding career opportunities in an exciting industry.
Pros
Beer
Cons
Stressful
