*Refined Fool Brewing Company makes small batch craft beer in Sarnia, Ontario. Refined Fool is a group of teachers, creatives, blue collars, entrepreneurs, musicians and pastors who care about beer, business, Sarnia and each other. We began by brewing out of our houses in midwinter with propane burners and frozen hoses and have since evolved into a downtown nano-brewery.
