Located at 36 Wagstaff Drive on northern edge of the Leslieville neighbourhood, the century-old building that once housed a brick factory will provide 6000 square feet for Left Field owners Mark and Mandie Murphy to install a 20 hectolitre brewhouse, tasting room, retail store and offices.
In an interview with blogTO, the Murphys indicate that they hope to have their brewing equipment manufactured within six months, with brewing to start a few months afterward, and on-site retail sales to launch in early 2015.
To celebrate this big development, Left Field will be holding an open house at the new space before construction begins. Taking place on Saturday February 22nd from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM, the free admission event will feature $5 glasses of Left Field’s Eephus Oatmeal Brown Ale, Maris* Pale Ale and Resin Bag IPA, as well as food from Big House Pizza. Those planning on attending are encouraged to RSVP on Facebook.
