FORT FRANCES, ON – A new brewery and taproom that pays tribute to a local historic landmark is now open in the Northwestern Ontario town of Fort Frances.
Hallett Brewing has been founded by Tanya and Andrew Mueller, and takes its name from The Hallett, a large tugboat that was used through much of the 20th century to haul logs across Rainy Lake for the local pulp and paper mill, and is now a tourist attraction at Sorting Gap Marina.
Following a soft opening earlier this month, Hallett Brewing is officially launching today (July 28th) with four beers – House Blonde (5.5% abv), Raspberry Kolsch (5.2% abv), Bitter Blood Orange (4% abv), and Kviek Amber (4.9% abv) – on tap and in cans. Light snacks and soft drinks are also available in the taproom.
Hallett Brewing is located at 408 Scott Street in Fort Frances, and will be open from 11:00 AM today. For more details, see the brewery’s Facebook page.
