TORONTO, ON – More than three years after it was first rumoured, and almost two years after it was confirmed to be in the works, Junction Craft Brewing will be officially opening its new and much larger brewery in Toronto’s Stockyards neighbourhood this coming weekend.
The brewery’s new home is at 150 Symes Road, a 16,000-square-foot art deco building known as The Destructor that was erected by the city in 1934 and operated as an incinerator and waste transfer facility before sitting idle for a number of years.
After undergoing a $10 million renovation, the building now features a custom built, energy efficient brewhouse, a 30-tap tasting room, retail store, and event space that can accommodate up to 300 guests.
Following several preview events this week, Junction will be opening its retail store and taproom to the public on Saturday January 27th at 11:00 AM. Brewery tours are also available every Saturday, and can be booked online in advance.
