TORONTO, ON – Just over a month after it was first announced, the transition of Toronto’s Habits Gastropub into its new identity as Folly Brewpub is just about complete, with the re-opening under the new banner set to take place tomorrow (Wednesday October 14th).
The change in name and focus reflects the increasing popularity of the on-site nanobrewery that was launched in early 2015. In addition to the new name, the College Street bar and restaurant will also have a new food menu developed by chef Luis Martins, with dishes designed to pair with the line-up of saisons, farmhouse ales, mixed fermentation beers and sours created by brewers Christina Coady and Chris Conway.
“Saisons and farmhouse ales are fantastic styles,” says Coady in a statement announcing the switch-over. “They pair well with our food menu and with cool yeast blends, particularly those we get from Escarpment Labs. Our beers have complexity while still being very refreshing.”
As noted in the previous announcement, Folly has also received a manufacturing licence that will allow for the distribution of its beers to other licensed establishments, as well as take-home sales from a bottle shop that is planned to open next spring.
