Junction Craft Brewing finds new home in historic building
New location will be housed in former Symes Road Incinerator
Junction Craft Brewing is expanding and getting a new home at a historical Toronto site, the former Symes Road Incinerator.
The new brewery will open its doors in 2017 at 1507 Symes Road, at the corner of Symes road and Glen Scarlett Road.
The Art Deco structure was built by Toronto's longest serving Commissioner of Public Works, R.C Harris and opened in 1934.
The building is a rare survivor of West Toronto's early 20th century industrial era in the former Ontario Stockyards area and is a heritage property.
The new facility will feature a brewhouse, an event space, an expanded tap room, retail bottle shop and will offer brewery tours, according to the brewery's president, Tom Paterson.
"We hope it will be a place that all craft beer lovers will enjoy and want to keep coming back to," said Paterson in a statement.
Junction Craft Brewing is currently located on Cawthra Avenue just north of Dundas Street West and Keele Street.
The brewery opened in 2011.
