Beer garden and brewery coming to the Club District

If all goes according to plan, Toronto will soon be able to boast about a brand new microbrewery and beer garden in the Club District. The three-level venture is set to occupy the old Bauhaus space at 31 Mercer Street and will operate under the name Mascot Brewery.

From what we can gather, the project is revamp of what was once dubbed 100 Days of Summer, a similar concept planned for Queen and Peter streets. The good news is that the latest iteration on Mercer Street already has a tentative opening date set. The rooftop beer garden is slated for a May 21 launch, with the restaurant-brewery space to follow in mid June.

Wedged between the two Mascot spaces, a second floor beer bar called Odd Thomas is also set to open at the beginning of May.

While the details are a little scarce right now, it's worth noting that Mike Duggan has been tapped to work on the beer development side of things and that Aaron Prothro (Nyood, Kultura, F-Stop) is leading the ownership team.

The beer garden sounds particularly exciting. The concept is a 200 capacity patio done Bavarian style with house-made pretzels, sausages and schnitzel on offer. Plans for a barbecue and smoker are also in the works.

Assuming everything opens on time, this could the hottest spot for beer this spring in Toronto.
