Massive new brewpub coming to the Danforth
The western reaches of Danforth are home to many wonderful things - oodles of delicious Greek food; some great cafes; quiet, tree-lined side streets; a variety of ways to fall into a sugar coma. But until now, it wasn't exactly the city's most notable destination for beer. (Aside, obviously, from the Old Nick. You know I love you, girl.)
All that's about to change with the arrival of Louis Cifer Brew Works, a brand-new brewpub and restaurant ready to take over the former home of Four One Seven at 417 Danforth Ave. The huge space, still in the renovation stages, will act as a pub, a brewery, and a bottling plant all in one. The pub's site says the operators - the same folks behind Cabbagetown's Stout Irish Pub - aim to be open for business by the fall. It's not yet known what they'll be pouring - for now, satisfy yourself with this gigantic animation of a delicious, frothy pint. Mmm, pint.
