North Bay, Ontario – New Ontario Brewing Company opened in North Bay on September 23rd, 2015 at their current location at 1881 Cassells Street. After almost 5 years at this location they plan on moving to a former Northern Honda building on Seymour Street as reported by The North Bay Nugget.
Brewmaster Mike Harrison says the brewery is planning to relocate in order to expand and grow its operation, including into more grocery stores, Beer Stores and LCBOs, as well as bars and restaurants outside of the city.
Currently near the intersection of Cassells Street and Highway 11/17, the new location at 1401 Seymour St. will be 13,000 square feet, feature new equipment, and include a larger tap room to help showcase its products.
The application still requires that city council pass a resolution supporting the issuance of a license.
If all goes well Mike Harrison hopes to be in and open at the former Honda building before the start of summer.
