New Toronto brewery to be named after the Danforth

It's been an interesting few months for the east side beer scene in Toronto, with Louis Cifer landing on the Danforth last fall and Left Field previewing their Gerrard and Greenwood brewery recently. And it looks like there's a new addition - Danforth Brewery, a two-man brewing company set to launch later this year.

Granted, for now, it looks like the east-side connection is in name only. They're still seeking a contract brewing facility to produce their new brews, including a west-coast style IPA called Danforth West. It might be a little while before we get to taste the stuff, but Danforth beer lovers (myself included) are thirsty already.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article stated that Danforth Brewery would be contract brewing at Cool Beer Brewing Co. Etobicoke.
