The day is finally here, The Bakery Brewing is opening our doors today and we can’t be more excited! Our team of brewers, staff and contractors have been hard at work for the last 15 months working to get the beer ready, and our space looking and feeling amazing. We are looking forward to sharing our beers and our space with all of you. So what can you expect? Well, for starters, a lot of new beers all the time. We brew very small batches here at The Bakery Brewing, and many of the beers you will enjoy have taken many months, some well over a year to be ready. Many of our beers are painstakingly created by blending multiple brews together to get the exact flavours our brewers are looking for before they end up in your glass. it’s all about experimentation and discovery. You can see what’s on tap on our website, as well as what’s available for growler fills and in bottles. See you soon! – The Bakery Brewing Team
