In early-to mid-2015, Calgary-based Big Rock Brewery will open a 7,400 square foot brewpub in Toronto’s trendy Liberty Village. Located at 60 Atlantic Avenue, Big Rock will feature 40 varieties of beer, most unavailable in Toronto. The deal was coordinated by Toronto-based brokerage Ashlar Urban Realty

Big Rock had been “circling the area” looking for a space with character that fits its brand, says Ashlar’s Brandon Gorman. 60 Atlantic Avenue is a turn-of-the-century brick and beam building that owner Hullmark Developments has given a complete retrofit.

The 7,400 square foot ground-floor brewpub will include a 3,000 square foot patio facing Atlantic Avenue, something Mr. Gorman says is “unmatched”. 

This will be Big Rock Brewery’s second venture outside of Alberta, following the announcement last March of a Vancouver location. Vancouver’s Big Rock Brewery is currently under construction.

“The Liberty Village site, at the corner of Liberty Street and Atlantic Avenue, will provide a great opportunity to share our beers and demonstrate our beer innovation,” said Bob Sartor, Big Rock CEO. “Over the past two years, we have produced over 40 unique and different beers, but very few have found their way into Ontario. With this brewpub, we will be able to showcase our beers and ciders and share them with everyone. We are excited about putting down roots in Liberty Village, a vibrant urban community within Toronto and we will continue to evaluate other opportunities in Ontario and beyond.”
