TORONTO, ON – A bit more than a year since it launched with a beer produced at Guelph’s Wellington Brewery under contract, Junction Craft Brewing has opened its own brewing facility in the Toronto neighbourhood it was named after.
Located at 90 Cawthra Avenue in the Junction, near the former site of the West Toronto CPR station, the facility includes a tasting room, retail store, and a 3 hectolitre brewhouse where brewmaster Doug Pengelly will create a variety of beers to be sold on-site.
The brewery opened last Thursday with three new beers available – Station Master Stout, English Brown Ale and Extra Pale Ale – along with Junction’s flagship brand, Conductor’s Craft Ale, which will continue to be brewed at Wellington in order to meet demand.
Current operating hours for the Junction tasting room and retail store are 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Thursdays and Fridays, and 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Saturdays. Take-home sales are limited to 2 litre growlers for now, but 500 ml bottles will be available early in 2013.
