PORT PERRY, ON – Local community news website DurhamRegion.com reports that a new brewery is set to open early next year in Port Perry, Ontario.
Old Flame Brewing is being backed by “serial entrepreneur” Jack Doak, who has taken over an historic 130-year-old building in the town that was originally home to Ontario Carriage Works, and most recently housed an LCBO store.
Working in partnership with Niagara College Teaching Brewery, Doak developed three flagship brands that he expects to be “enjoyed by all beer drinkers and well-accepted by the hop-heads.”
The 15-hectolitre brewhouse is expected to arrive in late December or early January, and the first Old Flame beers should be available on draught at local bars and in growlers at an on-site retail store by February or March of 2014. Distribution in cans to local LCBO locations is also planned.
