Soon to open Bandit Brewery will make sour beer

Toronto's west side is dotted with locally owned craft breweries and in 2016, it's going to get one more.

Bandit Brewery is slated to open some time in the next few months, but co-owner Shehzad Hamza won't give an exact date just yet. Though, he does say that both he and his business partner Stephane Dubois were inspired by Europe's laid back beer gardens.

The 2125 Dundas St. W. space will lets patrons mingle over small plates as they sip on craft beer made on site. And, Hamza hopes to introduce Torontonians to brews - like sours and barrel-aged varieties - they may not have tried elsewhere yet.

"We like those experimental types of beer that not many people get to taste because they're pretty one off, they're pretty rare," Hamza says.

While the Roncesvalles space isn't ready just yet, Bandit made its debut with at the West End Brew Project: #WECollab event. It collaborated with the Junction Craft Brewery to create a Black IPA called Raccoon Roll.
