The brewhouse will sell a range of Goose Island beers, AB InBev said

Anheuser-Busch InBev is continuing the global expansion of its Goose Island brand with the planned opening of a Goose Island brewhouse in Canada.

The company said yesterday the brewhouse, in downtown Toronto, will open on 17 July and serve beer brewed on-site. The venue will serve food and growlers to take away.

According to AB InBev, the brewhouse will be "the Canadian home" for Goose Island beers, which first entered the country in 2013.

Goose Island has vastly ramped up its production since AB InBev bought the Chicago-based craft brewery in 2011. Some of its volumes are now produced at AB InBev's US breweries, while Goose Island brewpubs have opened across the world, including in Shanghai.

News of the Toronto site was first announced in local media last April. The bar will have 12 taps and a BrauKon brewing system with seven stainless steel fermentation tanks. It will also have a front patio space overlooking The Esplanade in Toronto and an 60-person beer garden.
