Granite Brewery Scholarship Program

As part of our 25th Anniversary, we have started a Scholarship fund in recognition of the tremendous support we have received from staff and customers over the years.  The fund will distribute an amount of $5000 per year to a deserving post-secondary student or students. The first $5000 in sales of this year’s Anniversary Ale will be placed in the fund.  Subsequent years will be funded by a special “Scholarship Ale” brewed each spring to top off the fund. 


Customers, staff and their families are eligible to apply.    A selected group of customers and staff will review the applications and make recommendations for the scholarships.  It may be all given to one student or split among several students.  While important this will not be about marks alone. Applicants will be asked about their field of study, academic achievement, community involvement and their “history” with the Granite.


Since we have a late start to this year’s academic year we will be accepting applications until November 15, 2016 for the first scholarships to be awarded by the end of the year.  Subsequent year’s applications will be due on July 1 for scholarships to be awarded before the September academic year start.


To be considered for a scholarship please fill out and submit the following form.

Granite Brewery Charitable Fund


Our first donation from the fund ($1000) was recently made to The Rwanda Craft Beer project.  This project was spearheaded by our friends at Beau’s Brewery to create the first women owned brewery in Rwanda.  Details at:  

The Granite Brewery has been a fixture at the corner of Eglinton and Mt. Pleasant for 25 years now. The reason for our longevity is the tremendous support we have received from our loyal customers and staff over the years.  We have watched many families celebrate the birth of a daughter or son and now those children are young adults and continue as Granite customers. We have helped people with birthdays, graduations, anniversaries and weddings.  Sadly, but proudly we have hosted many celebrations of life also.

As part of our 25th anniversary we want to give a little something back to our community.  We have established the Granite Brewery Charitable Fund which will issue grants and donations to local charities on a regular basis. The fund has been established with an initial amount of $25,000.  More money will be raised and added to the fund on a regular basis.  We expect to distribute up to 20% of the fund annually.

Our goal is to distribute funds to small local charities to help them achieve their goals.  Charities will be selected and decided upon by a small panel.  We will be asking interested customers to help us make those choices and to suggest further ways to add to the fund.  One of our goals is to do this with no overhead expenses at all.  Any involvement in the administration and decision making process will be on a 100% volunteer basis, although Granite ales will flow freely at all meetings!

For more information and suggestions on deserving local charities please email
