TORONTO — Craft Beer Market has set its sights on Toronto for its next location. The premium-casual restaurant, with its emphasis on fresh local food and a wide choice of craft beer, will open its doors on the corner of Adelaide and Yonge in early 2017.
“Toronto has always been on our radar. We already have some really good friends and partners here in the city so it feels like a natural fit for us,” says PJ L’Heureux, president and founder of Craft Beer Market. “There are great things happening with craft beer in Ontario and we look forward to being a part of the community and helping to grow the craft-beer scene in Toronto.”
The Calgary-based chain got its start in Western Canada, currently operating locations in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. It also launched in the Ontario market earlier this year, opening in Ottawa.
Each Craft location has more than 100 beers on tap, giving customers options ranging from small neighbourhood breweries to well-established North American and European favourites. Craft plans to have a minimum of 50 per cent of the taps at their new location pouring Ontario beers.
The restaurants also offer a menu of “New North American Classic Cuisine” featuring locally sourced produce and meats.
