Black Oak Grand Opening - Saturday Night

Black Oak Brewery President, Ken Woods (pictured) and Brew Master, Adrian Popowycz, along with the rest of the Black Oak Brewery staff, are getting ready to host their grand opening party at their new Etobicoke location. This Saturday, between 4pm and midnight, join the private party out at the brewery to welcome the group to the area. There will be some special whiskey barrel aged beers available for sampling, along with a cask of Hop Bomb.

This must be an exciting time for the Black Oak team as getting the brewery to where it is now has taken a little longer than originally planned. I visited the new location back in November, and I mentioned in the blog post that followed that they should have been up and running since Christmas, so having a grand opening now must be bittersweet.

I plan on attending, and I think you should too. And being able to board a bus to get to and from the party safely, for free, is an added bonus and a generous gesture from Black Oak.

The Black Oak Brewing Company is finally having a Grand Opening

You are invited to attend a private event at the new brewery.
