July 24, 2020 – Hamilton, Ont – Collective Arts has announced they’re opening a brewery and taproom in the Trinity Bellwoods area of Toronto this summer with plans to work with and champion the local artist community. The brewery is located at 777 Dundas Street West, and will be home to a 10bbl brew kit, taproom, retail store and patio. After some minor renovations, they plan to open in late August.

In their seven years in business, Collective Arts has worked with over 2000 artists from 40 different countries, and will use this new space to stay true to their artist-first mission by turning it into a refreshing art gallery. “We’ve always looked to Toronto as another home for us. We’re inspired by the vibrant culture and arts community that the city brings; we believe that this location is an ideal spot for us to be,” explains Collective Arts co-founder, Bob Russell.

Collective Arts Toronto will be the innovation centre for Collective Arts Brewing, creating experimental brews as well as collaboration beers with brewers from around the world. “Innovation in our beer making is something we’ve always taken pride in, and this facility will allow Ryan Morrow and his team to truly experiment with small batch brews,” explains Matt Johnston, co-founder of Collective Arts.

During COVID-19, the operations will be restricted to a reduced capacity patio and retail store. They are currently hiring a head brewer, chef and general manager for this new location. This will be one of three spaces for Collective Arts, with their home base in Hamilton, Ontario, and another brewery and taproom set to open in Brooklyn, NY this year. For job postings visit
