Brewpub and bottle shop coming to Little Italy

Habits Gastropub in Toronto's Little Italy started its own nano-brewery in January, adding made-in-house beer to its drinks menu. Now, the College Street spot is relaunching as Folly Brewpub to focus more closely on beer.

"We've extended our brewery into the back room and we're rebranding in an effort to highlight that," says co-owner Michelle Genttner. Folly's core beers will include an Old World Spelt Saison, a New World Saison, a Farmhouse IPA and a Farmhouse Dubbel. The brewpub will also offer seasonal varieties.

Prior to opening in late September or early October, Chef and co-owner LuĂ­s Martins will update the menu to reflected the renewed focus on beer. Along with selling its products at the brewpub, the Folly also has a manufacturing license enabling to sell off-site. A bottle-shop is in the works for 2016.
