Koochaching Brewing to open this summer in Orillia
Orillia – The Koochaching Brewing Co. is now under construction in the city’s downtown area at 162 Mississaga St East.
Founded by eight local business partners, members of a local homebrewing club, the two-floor brewpub will feature a retail store, tap room, and restaurant.
“Construction is underway and our 20 barrel brewhouse arrives in late May,” writes Rob Meeder President and Co-founder. “Our goal is to produce top-quality beer, featuring local fresh ingredients in an inviting location near Orillia’s busy waterfront. We are excited to become an anchor point in Orillia’s growing downtown community and, as our vision statement says, become a place where ‘working hard and playing hard is both respected and rewarded’.”
Brewing will be headed by Alex McGarvey, a Niagara College Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management graduate.
A targeted opening is slated for late-Summer 2017.
