Bier Markt on Esplanade being taken over by US brewery

The Bier Markt on the Esplanade is currently closed for renovations. But when the restaurant and beer hall reopens this summer, it'll look a little different.

That's because the Toronto-based chain is partnering with Goose Island to open Chicago beer company's first Canadian brewhouse.

The Goose Island Brewhouse will brew beer on site and it'll feature 12 taps, a menu created by Bier Markt chefs Kevin Maniaci and Shawn Jackson, a 60-person outdoor beer garden and a retail store selling growlers and other branded merchandise.

The Bier Markt is still sticking around, but it will share a space with Goose Island and they'll collaborate in terms of food.

Toronto's latest brewhouse will open on July 17.
