Get to know our passionate team of owners who
brought Stony Run Brew House to life.
Bob Elmiger & Tim March are the co-owners of Stony Run Brew House. Together they bring a wealth of business and brewing experience. Bob and Tim along with their families have spent countless hours behind the scenes carefully working on every detail toward the goal of making Stony Run Brew House a place that not only provides quality handcrafted beer, but exceptional food, service and atmosphere.
You may notice the church-like feel reflected in the décor. This inspired by the Trappist breweries. Not only did the Trappist monks make a quality beer product, but they also wanted to give people a safe, clean place to come for rest and refreshment. This is at the heart of our mission and vision for Stony Run Brew House. We truly hope that everyone who walks through our doors will have the best possible experience!
Bob’s spent 35 years in his own business as a residential contractor before he took his home brewing and wine making hobby to the next level by opening Bailee’s Homebrew & Wine Supplies. During this time, Bob’s passion for craft beer and people along with the growing popularity of microbreweries inspired him to begin planning for a brewery of his own. When Bailee’s outgrew its first East York location in 2015, Bob began the search for a building big enough to house Bailee’s and a brewpub which led him to the current location of Stony Run Brew House. Bob met Tim along the way and together they formed the team that would carry Stony Run from a dream to a reality!
Bob is especially passionate about the Belgian beer styles which will be reflected in some of the offerings on tap in our brewpub. Besides being passionate about craft beer, Bob loves spending time with God, his family and his two rescue dogs, Bailee and Daisy.

Passion. That is the best word I can use to describe my father’s love for brewing. From the moment he received his first Mr. Beer kit 10 years ago, to watching his garage brewery evolve and now opening Stony Run, his passion and commitment to making the best beer possible has never waivered. You can feel the investment when you talk to him. You can truly tell this is what he was meant to do. And most importantly, you can taste it.
His passion extends beyond just craft beer. While he isn’t brewing or concocting new brews (which isn’t very often) he enjoys golfing and spending time with his 4 grandsons Jace, Jackson, Jordan and Alex. He is an amazing role model for them and for me.
I hope everyone that walks into Stony Run can experience the same excitement and passion that go into the beer. It truly is a work of love from a great person and even better father.
