We’ve heard of the phrase ‘there must be something in the water’ used before in different situations. But how about as the name of a brewery? It stands out for sure, which was the intended goal of the founders, Steve Waugh, Mike Lee and Rick Tanton. The physical location of the brewery in Toronto might be new, but the three had embarked on this journey with beer nearly two years ago.
Something in the Water Brewing Co. in Toronto
From beginning as a contract brewery to finally opening up a storefront, it’s been quite the trip for the team. They had been looking to sell their sour beers at other alcohol retail spaces like the LCBO during the pandemic but eventually decided that it would work best to scale their brand by opening up their own spot. And so they did at the city’s Liberty Village.
In addition to “curious beers”, the menu also includes snacks that complements the beverages. There’s Knotty Pretzels, Bliss Dough, Niagara Popcorn, Humble Potato Chips and so on. As for the beers themselves, there’s ones with different flavour profiles.
If you’re looking for something sweet, you might want to check out the Painted Lake Peach Crisp Berliner Weisse. How about farm-to-glass pilsner? There’s the Garrison Creek Local Pilsner. For those who are trying out sours for the first time (or not that familiar with the taste of beer), the brand suggests the Lee River Blackberry Vanilla Sour Beer.
With a patio for the summer and brightly coloured and vibrant interiors, the brewery in Toronto makes for a welcome addition on 151 East Liberty Street.
