On a personal level, this beer is special to me. I started my brewing career in Montreal, and I have formative memories of Dieu du Ciel. I loved the conviviality of the place and I was inspired by the way it carried through to their imaginative beer. It has been an honour for us to work with Luc and his team to bring that feeling to Toronto.

Here at the brewery, we’re once again partnering with the Red Door Family Shelter to collect much-needed items and through donations with your support.
It goes without saying that 2015 was an incredibly busy year for all of us behind the scenes here at the Left Field Brewery. From getting the brewery up and running to opening the Tap Room and Bottle Shop full time, to undergoing expansion with the addition of two new fermenters and a new bottling line, we’ve hardly taken a moment to sit back and reflect.

We’ve been eager to bring you progress updates on our now officially-longer-than-one-year-long-brewery-build and if you’ve been following us on the book of faces, Twitter or Instagram, this is not news to you. With all the excitement around here over the past few weeks, we’ve bombarded your news feed with pictures of brewery firsts and major milestones.
