As reported on CBN last month, Goose Island Brewhouse Toronto was originally set to open today (July 17th) at 58 The Esplanade, where it will be co-located with Bier Markt Esplanade. However, an Instagram post made over the weekend indicates that the opening has been postponed, with a new date yet to be announced.
Once it opens, Head Brewer Bernard Priest and Assistant Brewer Marc Mammoliti will be producing batches of classic Goose Island brands alongside their own creations, all of which will be rotated through the bar’s 12 taps, along with occasional rarities from Goose Island’s original Chicago location. The food menu developed by Bier Markt Executive Chef Kevin Maniaci and Chef de Cuisine Shawn Jackson with change seasonally to use fresh and local ingredients, with dishes designed to pair well with the beers on tap.
In addition to the bar and dining room, the new Goose Island will feature a retail store selling growlers of beer to go and branded merchandise, as well as a front patio and a rear Biergarten.
