Toronto’s newest boutique is geared toward a very specific clientele—namely, the type that can ID any pint of beer down the specific variety of hops. Launched as a collaboration between the Toronto Brewing Company and local craft-beer site Mom ‘n’ Hops, the shop specializes in craft-beer swag. Beer buffs looking to show support their favourite breweries can buy branded t-shirts, hoodies, baseball caps and pint glasses emblazoned with the logos of local outfits like Left Field and Junction Craft Brewing. The physical store is housed in Toronto Brewing’s 2,000-square-foot storefront across from Downsview Park. It’s also a supply store for serious home brewers (for instance, it advertises something called a “massive liquid yeast fridge”), so shoppers should be prepared to leave with a new hobby.
