Canada, ON: Kensington Brewing planning second location in Vaughan
Kensington Brewing has announced the opening of a second location in Vaughan, a suburban city just north of Toronto, the Canadian Beer News reported on May 15.
The new facility opened late last week in the space previously occupied by Lake Wilcox Brewing, which quietly closed earlier this year after operating there since October 2016.
As stated in the opening announcement on Facebook:
It wasnt our intention to open a second brewery in the middle of a global pandemic (definitely poor timing), but weve been working on this for over a year now & couldnt keep it a secret any longer. Youve been to our brewery, things are tight. In short, we just needed a little more space. Now well be able to brew enough beer to .(heres another bit of exciting info) return to the LCBO, work with more local restaurants & bars, and work on a few new recipes & projects.
The announcement also notes that the companys original Toronto location in its namesake Kensington Market is still & will continue to remain our forever home (dont worry, were not going anywhere).
The new Kensington Brewing is located at 3-1033 Edgeley Blvd. in Vaughan, and is currently open for retail sales from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Thursday to Sunday. The Toronto shop is open during the same hours 7 days a week, and delivery orders can be placed via the brewerys online store.
