ALLISTON, ON – Barnstormer Brewing & Distilling has announced plans to open a second location in Alliston, a small community approximately 40 km southwest of its original facility in Barrie, Ontario.
Taking over a space that was previously home to the Coop Public House & Foodiary, the new Barnstormer will feature a bar and restaurant with the brewery’s eight core beers on tap and the same locally-focused food menu as the Barrie location, plus a retail shop selling beer and merchandise to take home.
A temporary outdoor patio will also be set up at opening, with a permanent one to be constructed for next year.
This is the second time Barnstormer has planned an expansion, with a location in Midland announced in early 2017, but cancelled later that year after an environmental study on the site found low levels of industrial contamination.
