PORT COLBORNE, ON – Ontario Beverage Network reports that a brewery and restaurant named after a local historic site is aiming to open this autumn in the city of Port Colborne in Ontario’s Niagara Region.
Breakwall Taphouse & Brewery is being established by local business owners Fred and Monica Davies, and takes its name from the Gravelly Bay breakwall.
“That breakwall has protected our community and marine industry for over 180 years,” notes Fred in a press release. “What better way to honour our history than by putting it on a local beer bottle?”
Currently under construction at 46 Clarence St., the 5000-square-foot establishment will include a brewhouse, 160-seat restaurant, outdoor patio, and retail store.
Core brands for the brewery will include Golden Ale (4.5% abv), IPA (6.5% abv), Chocolate Porter (5.5% abv), and English Mild (3.5% abv), and rotating seasonals will also be featured, starting with “the recreation of the elusive Maple Lager which was one of the last beers made locally over 100 years ago.”
