Born in Toronto, Mill Street Brewery opened in December 2002 in what is now known as the Historic Distillery District. Even then – before ‘craft beer’ was a household term – Mill Street was committed to making unusual and exciting beers using only the finest malt, hops and yeast. It was with that in mind that the first batch of Mill Street beer was brewed and given the name, Original Organic Lager, the first certified Organic beer in Ontario.
Since those days, Mill Street has grown to become one of the most popular craft breweries in Canada. Winning several awards for both its individual brews and the brewery itself, along the way. Mill Street was named Canadian Brewery of the Year at the Canadian Brewing Awards on three separate occasions.
Its original Distillery District location now houses the Mill Street Brew Pub and has expanded with the addition of The Beer Hall. This sister, and neighbouring, restaurant, features Ontario’s only Bierschnaps distillery.
Mill Street also has a Brew Pub in Ottawa located at the historic Thompson-Perkins Mill, on the Ottawa River. Guests can also seek out other Mill Street Brew Pubs in Calgary and St. John’s.
As a proudly Torontonian brewery, Mill Street is excited to be adding to the experience for UP Express travelers, by providing a range of craft beers and exceptional pub-fare to the CIBC UPstairs lounge. As well as an on-going rotation of exciting seasonal offerings, Mill Street also hosts monthly beer-related events and live music in the Lounge.
