We are the Begin Family: Danielle, Devin, Brooklynn and the least important member, myself Rob.
We are the collective brainchild and “OG’s” of Garciolli’s, started in 1994 on Mary Street in Niagara on the Lake while spending the better part of growing up on Line 3 in Virgil.
Those that have served a minimum life sentence in NOTL will remember that place and those that haven’t… need not to worry, WE ARE BACK, 2.0 style... bigger, better and BEER... so you will have lots of opportunity to do so!
We have spent a lifetime driving past the “barn” as we affectionately call it, and have always been fascinated with the look, the area, and the potential. The barn was originally owned by the Fedorkow Family and was used as their family farms packing shed, in our opinion, an invaluable piece of St. David’s history that needed to be maintained and rehabilitated back to its former glory in a new and exciting way.
After recently retiring from a 24 year career working with a bunch of the great breweries and wineries in Ontario, Danielle and I decided to blow every bit of our kids inheritance and return to the scene of the crime to improve upon our past, complimented with the experience gained in the brewing industry.
Our family has champagne taste (on a beer budget) and believe nothing is more important than family time around delicious food and of course some high octane drinks, because no great story every started with “One time I was eating a salad..” So what better way to do it than with another 140 people we will treat as family and be able to do it every day!
After 186 years, brewing is finally back to St. David’s along with a relaxed eatery in the main barn with a surprise phase to be announced in our other barn.. stay tuned for that because if pizza and beer isn’t already exciting enough, the next phase will definitely sweeten things up and put a jolt in your morning step!
Our hope is that everyone will feel at home and that we as a family do the right thing in the right way…with your family.
We look forward to personally welcoming each of you soon..
