Les 3 Brasseurs - Opening Soon

*** This post has been updated after speaking with one of the owners by telephone***

I tend to cruise up and down Yonge street during my daily lunch break and last week I noticed this large banner hanging above the new Toronto location of the Les 3 Brasseurs Micro-brewery(The 3 Brewers).

News of the France-based chain of restaurants coming to Toronto was announced by a member of Bar Towel back in November of 2005, so after 3+ years, it appears it will be up and running shortly. "We hope to be up and running by the 2nd week of June, but there are always delays with construction. Hopefully it will continue to go well and we'll open by our proposed date," stated Gerry, one of the owners of the 3 Brewers.

The brewpub (no off premise sales) will be situated just south of Dundas Street, on Yonge, mere steps away from Dundas Square. "The capacity will be set at 275 individuals, over three floors, and will feature a private dining area to accommodate large groups of up to 50."

"We will have our four beers on tap, and our one bottled brand: Blonde, The Virago Brown (Dark Ale), Red Amber Passion, and The Shy Sister Belgian Wheat will all be on tap. Customers can also purchase our bottled Red Ale with Maple (La Belle Province) to compliment their dinner," confirmed Gerry. The brewmaster started off working for the 3 Brewers in France, and according to Gerry, he has settled into Toronto already and getting ready to brew.

"We are really looking forward to being part of the Ontario brewing scene, and can't wait to open our doors to the public."
