Muddy York Brewing comes to Toronto’s east end Summer 2014
Toronto, ON – Muddy York Brewing Co. this week announced plans to launch in Toronto’s East York in Summer 2014 at 22 Cranfield Road, founded by award-winning homebrewer, Jeff Manol.
Manol, who has earned multiple homebrewing awards across Canada including Best of Show’ in the 2013 National Capital Beer Week Homebrewing Competition and 2nd place in the 2013 Beau’s Oktoberfest “People’s Choice” Awards, is also a BJCP-certified beer judge with experience at both provincial and national level judging. Manol is also behind homebrewing blog, Hoptomology.
“Buried deep in the layers of history beneath Toronto’s downtown core lies the story of Muddy York. Founded in 1793, the burgeoning settlement then known as York, was the foundation of what would become the thriving metropolis we know today,” describes Muddy York Brewing. “In its early years, the lack of infrastructure made life for the cities inhabitants difficult. During rainfall, the unpaved streets transformed into impassable muddy avenues, earning the city the somewhat disparaging nickname Muddy York.”
A 4 hectoltire (3.5bbl) brewhouse, complete with two jacketed cylindroconical fermentors and a one jacketed brite tank, is currently being installed at its facility. It will start out as a production brewery, offering draught releases of its three core brands – Muddy York Porter, Unearthed Amber Ale, and Dereliction Double IPA – then follow with an on-site retail store.
