Shortly after it opened last spring, Bellwoods Brewery started hosting pop-up bottle and growler sales in the adjacent storefront—and each time they did, there was a lineup down Ossington. Today, Bellwoods joins a host of other local brewers—The Beer Academy, Junction Craft Brewing, Mill St. and Amsterdam among them—to offer an alternative to a trip to the LCBO or Beer Store (yes, this is allowed). The brewery’s retail shop is now open seven days a week, from noon until 11 p.m., except on Sunday, when liquor licensing laws force them to close at 6 p.m. 650 ml bottles will sell for $4.75–$8 (current selections include their Muggleweisse, Petal Head and Blitzen), and growlers will go for $14, plus deposit.
