Mill Street on the move

As discussed on the Bar Towel Forum back in November, Toronto's Mill Street Brewery will soon be moving to a new location in Scarborough. In the Feb/Mar issue of Great Lakes Brewing News, Robert Hughey gives a bit more info about the move and related plans.

He reports that the new location will be a massive 30,000 square feet, and will be capable of producing around 80,000 hectolitres a year, with plans already in place to increase the capacity to 150,000 hectolitres. This increased capacity will ensure a more steady supply of their beer is available at retail and restaurant/bar outlets, and will also allow them to bottle some of their previously keg-only beers such as the Belgian Wheat.

Even more exciting are their plans for the exisiting brewery space in the Distillery District:

[T]he original Mill Street Brewery is going to be converted into a 300-seat brewpub, with 200 seats inside and 100 seats outside on two patios, north and south of the brewery building. There will be 12 beers on tap, showcasing a wide range of beer styles, including a few which will be cask conditioned.

So we'll be getting a more reliable supply of the existing Mill Street beers, easier access to their seasonals, and a line-up of experiments at the brewpub location - great news all around!
