BRANTFORD, ON – Community newspaper Brant News reports that a year-and-a-half after launching as a contract brewery, Bell City Brewing has locked down a spot in Brantford for a physical brewing location.
Appearing before Brantford city council on Monday night, co-owner Dennis Marijan allayed any concerns that councillors had regarding the planned facility, and received unanimous approval for the project.
Combined with the approval for a retail outlet that Marijan and partner Matthew Sakthivel received from the AGCO last week, this nod from the city should allow the pair to proceed with construction of a brewery, tasting room and retail store in the 5,000 square foot space they have leased at 51 Woodyatt Drive.
No timeline has been announced for the opening of the new facility. In the meantime, Bell City will continue to have its Eureka Cream Ale and Lenoir Belgian Ale brewed under contract at Railway City Brewing in St. Thomas.
