Darren Smith founded Lake of Bays Brewing Co. with personal investments from friends and family and a passion for making great-tasting beer. The company is one of the fastest-growing craft brewers in Ontario, and produces all of its beer at its Baysville, Ontario brewery.

As Lake of Bays grew in popularity, Darren was seeking new capital sources to support his growing business. We provided the company with a loan to purchase new equipment that will help support its continued growth.

Assembling the right ingredients.

Successful business owners have the ability to recognize profitable opportunities when they arise. Darren knew that some equipment improvements would allow him to better serve his customers and create cost savings that would flow right to his bottom line.

Supporting our borrower's success.

Brewing is a capital intensive business. It was important for Darren to fund his business with fairly priced capital provided under straight-forward terms.
