Vegandale Brewery is opening at 1346 Queen S W (corner of Queen & Brock).

http://dailyhive.com/toronto/vegan-brewery-toronto-2018

Situated at Queen Street West and Brock, the new brewpub from 5700 Inc. (founders of the Vegandale Food Drink Festivals and restaurants including Doomie’s Toronto, The Imperative and Mythology) is partnering Michael Duggan (co-founder of Mill Street Brewery) to produce small-batch brews in-house including the Principled Pilsner, See the Light Lager, The Sour Truth, and Morally Superior IPA.

PS: Next door to me when growing up, the neighbours had this fantastic black lab called Molson whom we loved… so I'll always see this new Leslieville brewery as Molson's.

This has been around for a couple of months, but I don't think it's been mentioned here yet:

Former contract brewer Longslice Brewery are a partner in The Aviary Brewpub in Corktown (Canary District) and have some brewing facilities and retail on site.

Black Lab opening on Eastern near Rorschach this fall. Blog TO article is wrong, they won't be focussing on Old World styles, the head brewer just likes them.

I went to Rorschach recently and discovered they don't know what the hell they are doing with food.

We ordered the "loaded nachos" which was $30.00 and allegedly enough for four as an appetizer. What came out of the kitchen was bizarre. It was a long rectangular plate, about the size of a full-size desktop computer keyboard. This was clearly not enough for four, but the odd part was the placement of the toppings. They were what was listed on the menu, but they put each topping in a separate piles horizontally across the plate. There was a pile of diced tomatoes. a pile of shredded lettuce, a pile of pulled pork, a pile of guacamole, a pile of shredded cheese, a pile of refried beans, etc...

This is not how "loaded nachos" work. It was like getting nachos at the Ikea restaurant: "some assembly required."

Another new one in Leslieville: Avling Brewery & Restaurant will be opening soon near Queen & Pape.

Nicely fills in the gap between Saulter Street and Radical Road.

Google Maps shows Hogtown Brewery at 262 Carlaw, just north of Queen. Their website says a new brewpub will be opening up. No dates or actual location yet.

Toronto makes opening craft breweries a bit easier

Kayla Goodfield, CTV News Toronto
Published Wednesday, July 3, 2019 11:32AM EDT


Prior to the passing of the motion, city councillor Mike Layton held a news conference to discuss the report he built with his “cask force.”

The councillor, who represents Ward 11 University-Rosedale, said existing zoning barriers within the city made it difficult for small craft breweries to establish brewpubs.

“We put forward a motion that focuses on two things, bringing down some of the barriers to craft beer and that is now reflected in the motion in the staff report that is before the committee today to try to address some of the barriers to starting a craft brewery and the second was to ensure that beer events and beer tourism was a part of our city’s economic development strategy as it is in other cities across North America and across the world,” he said.
