G&L Braided Ropes & Twine


GL Braided Ropes & Twine has been onsite for many years and is the only ropemaker remaining in Brantford. Gino Mercante has been on the Artisans' Village site for most of his adult life, which of course, we won't divulge how many years that would be, but we will say that it has been many years! When he came out of school he became an employee of the historical 'Brantford Cordage', which operated on the site from the early 1900s through to the later 1970s. The Cordage was a big player in Brantford's manufacturing history throughout these years when it was the 3rd largest manufacturing town in Canada. I guess we could say that if anyone knows about making rope and twine, it would be Mr. Mercante! You can buy direct from this company in Unit 19. They have all kinds of different ropes and twines.

Mash Paddle Brewing Co.

Mash Paddle Brewing Co. started in their small kitchen where their first batches were made with love on a small apartment stove. Theo quickly outgrew his stove setup and met a fellow brewer that shared the same interests and passion to brew on a larger system. It also made his wife happy that her kitchen stopped looking like a drug lab. After 50 samples, 70 business plans and 10 or more heated discussions, their brand, taste, and direction was formed.The company is now creating some of the freshest local beer available in Brantford and surrounding area. Visit them in what is now known as Unit 4! Their brew is also found in select Brantford locations!
