Massive brewpub run by famous Canadian brewery closing permanently in Toronto

Batch, the brewpub on Victoria Street run by Ontario brewery Creemore Springs, has announced that it's closing for good. 

After four years in the Financial District, Batch is ceasing all operations at its 2,500-square-foot restaurant and brewery at 75 Victoria St. 

"While we’ve really enjoyed serving you delicious meals & small batch beers brewed on-site the Creemore Way, it is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the permanent closure of our beloved Batch House," said the company on Instagram Thursday. 

Creemore, owned by Molson Coors, made a separate post about Batch's closure saying, "The pandemic unfortunately led us to officially closing our Batch House doors located in downtown Toronto" 

The company says it has "exciting things" planned for the future.
