Left Field Brewery

During 2015's May long weekend, my wife capitulated and joined me on a trek to Toronto's east side to pay a visit to the Left Field Brewery, a long anticipated space that has recently opened its doors to the public.

Unfortunately, Left Field doesn't yet offer tours, so that wasn't an option, but on the plus side, I've been on enough brewery tours to know what they would've told me. The space is pretty cool--in keeping with the baseball theme, they have a working ballpark scoreboard that displays the brewery's hours. As well, they have a bottle shop where you can purchase bottles and cans of the good stuff on offer, and some pretty cool merch (although no shirts big enough for this portly beer geek--c'mon guys, know your audience!).

With lots of space, a neat alley location, and some cool baseball touches, Left Field Brewery has put together a a complete game three-hitter of a place, or if you prefer an offensive metaphor, they're a double away from the cycle. Either way, it's the kind of performance a player can be proud of and will be talking about for years to come. It's a bit out of the way, but well worth a journey.
