Do you value a good draft beer? Or maybe you’re all for supporting fresh local food? If you value either of these things then do I have a venue for you to look forward to!

CRAFT Beer Market, a premium casual restaurant with one of the largest selections of craft beer in Canada launched back in Calgary in 2011 by owner PJ L’Heureux and has been taking Canadian cities by storm – “one beer, one meal and one experience at a time”.

This year, Torontonians are getting a new addition to the booming beer scene as CRAFT plans to open a new Toronto location right at Yonge & Adelaide that features over 160 draught beers, premium selections of different wines and spirits and a menu specializing in North American Cuisine.

As far as space for events go, the Yonge & Adelaide location will provide multi-levels, multi-bars and several meeting and party spaces for a variety of group sizes!

CRAFT proudly quotes, “We believe in making a positive impact in everything we do, from our workplace to our community to the planet as a whole.

And it shows! Known for using fresh local food products from the surrounding community, Craft  takes pride in their welcoming and inclusive restaurant atmosphere that draws thousands of customers each year to different locations across Vancouver, Edmonton and Ottawa — just to name a few.

With Toronto being the latest Canadian city to “catch the Craft” fever, be sure to keep an eye out for a late summer 2017 opening!

Oliver and Bonacini welcomed Big Rock Brewery to Toronto with a collaborative, unique two-level, fully accessible heritage space, known as Liberty Commons. The modern brewpub venue offers up two separate and unique areas to rent out or go big with a full restaurant buyout.

Barrel Room is a great space with room for either a breakfast rendezvous or a full seated dinner of groups of up to 32, or have a reception style gathering for groups of a 47. The Barrel Room comes equipped with a 60” flat screen television, but you do have to be conscious of shrinking the guest list if a/v is required. The room is backdropped with an upcycled beer cask wall and exposed brick.

The Drink Tank offers an airy space with slightly smaller capacity. Up to 24 people can be seated or 30 people for reception style mixers, private get-togethers or business breakfasts. The Drink Tank gives guests a great visual of the brewmasters at work in the on-site brewery, perfect for a beer lager enthusiasts or an ale-themed event.

The entire restaurant will get 173 guests seated or a large soiree with 340 standing. For any option, a cocktail services can be provided,  with limitations on draft, and you can also tailor the beverage selections to enhance your guests’ experience! Match that with a customizable menu – including vegan and vegetarian- and you have a great event on your hands.
