Junction Craft Brewing announces new brewery opening in 2017
Toronto – Junction Craft Brewing has announces its move to a new 16,000 sq-ft Heritage building at 150 Symes Road in The Junction.
“We’re very excited to be up and running there by early next year,” said President Tom Paterson. “We’ll be opening a facility that, in addition to a new 25hL brewhouse and increased production and distribution capabilities, will offer brewery tours, an event space, and an expanded tap room and retail bottle shop. We hope it will be a place that all craft beer lovers will enjoy and want to keep coming back to.”
Situated less than a kilometre from Junction Craft’s current location, this impressive Art Deco structure was built by the City of Toronto and opened in 1934. The design and construction of the project took place under R.C. Harris, Toronto’s longest serving Commissioner of Public Works. Known originally as ‘Destructor on Symes Road‘ and later as ‘Symes Road Transfer Station’ when it was converted into a waste transfer facility, it is a rare survivor of West Toronto’s early 20th century’s industrial era in the former Ontario Stockyards area, according to Junction Craft.
The move is slated for early 2017.
