The Millstreet story begins in the winter of 2002 when they opened the doors to their little red brick brewery in Toronto’s historic Distillery District.
With an earth-friendly philosophy in mind, Original Organic Lager was the first beer they ever made, and the first ever organic beer brewed in Canada. Soon after they impressed curious craft drinkers with Tankhouse Ale, a uniquely flavour-forward brew for its time.
In 2006, they exceeded the capacity of their modest brewhouse and made the decision to expand the brewery, converting the original brewery space into a brewpub.
2012 saw them take on Ottawa’s vibrant craft beer scene, opening a second brewpub in a historic old gristmill on the banks of the Ottawa River.
They certainly never lost thier dedication to our craft and passion for pushing the envelope. The ever-expanding portfolio now includes over 60 unique beers earning us well over 100 awards, including 3-time Canadian Brewery of the Year. That’s the story up till now. Who knows where Millstreet’s “Great Beer” adventure will take them next? —- 2016 straight to the Whistler Longboard Festival. www.millstreetbrewery.com
