Craft beer business hopes to move from Aldergrove to Willoughby, and create new brewery lounge
An award winning brewery that has been a staple in Gloucester for the last 10 years, is planning to relocate and expand.
Dead Frog Brewery has applied to move their operation from 27272 Gloucester Way to a new location at 8860 201 St. in Willoughby, and to create an indoor/outdoor brewery lounge.
On March 19, Township council unanimously granted first and second reading to the proposal — which is requesting rezoning, an amendment to the Carvolth Neighbourhood Plan, and brewery lounge endorsement — and a public liquor licensing hearing is scheduled for April 9.
A staff report notes that brewery licences fall under provincial jurisdiction, however the Provincial Liquor Control and Licensing Branch allows council the opportunity to endorse or not endorse applications for brewery lounges. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will have to approve the rezoning bylaw as well, as the proposed location in within 800 metres of Highway 1.
