PORT PERRY, ON – The small town of Port Perry in Ontario’s Durham Region is now home to the province’s newest craft brewery, with last week’s opening of Old Flame Brewing.
Founded by self-described “serial entrepreneur” Jack Doak, Old Flame is located in an historic 130-year-old building that was originally home to Ontario Carriage Works, and most recently housed Port Perry’s LCBO outlet.
Now transformed into a 15-hectolitre brewhouse and tasting room, the brewery is offering three German-inspired flagship lagers – Blonde (Helles), Red (Vienna) and Brunette (Dunkel) – developed by head brewer and Niagara College Teaching Brewery graduate Scott Pautler.
Also available is a rotating series of one-offs and seasonals under the “Brewer’s Discretion” banner, including Dirty Blonde – an unfiltered version of the Blonde – and Perry Loved Mary West Coast IPA.
Old Flame beers are available at the brewery tasting room and retail store to sample on site and to take home in 750 ml mini-growlers. They can also be found on tap at select bars and restaurants in Port Perry, and LCBO sales in 568 ml (1 imperial pint) cans are planned for the future.
