Coming Soon – The Great Lakes Brewpub

Published February 3, 2021

Yes, Great Lakes is opening a second location here in Toronto!!

The Great Lakes Brewpub will occupy units 5-8 at 11 Lower Jarvis (at Queen’s Quay) in the heart of the East Bayfront neighbourhood in Toronto, and will take up approximately 6000 square feet.

The brewpub will feature a 7 Barrel brewhouse with multiple 15-barrel fermenters and boast 20 taps (plan as of today). There will be two patios, 120 seats, plenty of natural light, full kitchen and an extensive retail store.

We’ll also be using the space to bring our characters to life with lots of visual artwork on display. The space will be light and bright and will incorporate the vibe of the surrounding area.

With a TTC stop at the front doorstep, the brewpub will be easily accessible by foot, bicycle, and public transit, and will become a common space for the many students who currently study in East Bayfront.

Our whole team is excited to embark on this exciting chapter in our historic timeline… with you!
