KITCHENER, Ont. — Charcoal Group is set to open the latest location of its Beertown Public House concept in Guelph, Ont. on March 3 — one of three openings scheduled for 2020.
“We’re really excited to open our doors in Guelph,” says Jody Palubuski, partner, Charcoal Group. “Guelph is close to our home-base in Wellington County, so they may be familiar with the Charcoal Group and we believe there’s understanding or a trust in the experience we’ll provide them. We’ve been working on a location for Guelph for close to 15 years as we’ve been so fortunate to have so many Guelph residents as local guests at our Charcoal restaurants throughout the years.”
Beertown Guelph is the sixth restaurant in Charcoal’s Beertown banner. The custom-built 5,000-sq.-ft. space offers seating for 270 and will serve up an extensive craft-beer and beverage list, as well as a diverse menu designed to satisfy diners of all tastes. The location features an outdoor bocce-ball court on the patio, 41 draught lines, an exclusive kegged cocktail from Willibald Distillers and full plant-based and gluten-friendly menus.
“We try to make each Beertown location a little different from the others and individualize them,” Palubuski says. “I feel like what we’re doing in Guelph is the next generation of Beertown. We’ve learned a lot over the years through our previous restaurants and are applying those learnings to what we’ve built here.”
