A new Parkdale brewpub is on its way
Soon every Toronto neighbourhood will have a resto-retail-brewery complex to call its own. The next up is Duggan’s Brewery Parkdale, a reincarnation of the microbrewery that used to occupy the Beer Academy space at the corner of Richmond and Victoria streets. Canadian Beer News reports that the new west-end outpost will be a restaurant, retail store and “nanobrewery” in one, much like the upcoming Bellwoods Brewery facility on Dupont or the soon-to-open Louis Cifer Brew Works on the Danforth. The grand opening won’t happen until October, but the storefront at 1346 Queen West (previously home to Japanese restaurant Kanji) is already operating as a bar on select evenings (look for updates on Twitter).
