Goose Island Beer Company Teams Up With Bier Markt for Goose Island Brewhouse


TORONTO — Chicago-based craft-beer company, Goose Island, is joining forces with Toronto’s Bier Markt to build Canada’s first Goose Island Brewhouse. Located in downtown Toronto on The Esplanade, The Brewhouse will open its doors on July 17, 2017.

Along with Goose Island’s premium-quality beers, the new location will offer a selection of world-class brews, a made-from-scratch menu and live music. The Brewhouse will also include a retail store selling growlers to fill with beer brewed on-site, Toronto-inspired variants and Goose Island merchandise.

The Brewhouse’s seasonal menu will be designed to pair with Goose Island’s local and established brews. It will represent a collaborative effort between head brewer Bernard Priest, assistant brewer Marc Mammoliti and Bier Markt Esplanade chefs Kevin Maniaci and Shawn Jackson.

The nearly 18,000-sq.-ft. space has a history dating back to 1882. Originally owned by the company Wm. & J.G. ‎Greey of Toronto, the Mill Furnishing Works ‎factory was used to manufacture a wide range of steel-milling products, employing blacksmiths, tinsmiths and various other tradespeople. Its design ties back to the development of Toronto’s rail lines and the industrialization of this part of the city in the late 19th century. This building was officially designated for its cultural heritage value by the City of Toronto in 2007 and Goose Island has incorporated a part of this history with the Brewhouse design.
