On display at the Market Gallery from July 13, 2019 until December 28, 2019
Craft beer may be all the rage today in Toronto, but the city has a brewing tradition that began over two centuries ago. Through artifacts, artworks, archival images and videos, you can explore this rich legacy in the Market Gallery's new exhibition. The story begins with tiny breweries established in the early 1800s, then covers the scaling-up of the industry in Victorian times, the impact of Prohibition, the rise of Canada's macrobrewers in the first half of the 20th century, and ends with a look at the microbrewery movement since 1985 and contemporary craft-beer culture. The Market Gallery is one of 10 Toronto History Museums which explore where Toronto's many pasts, presents and futures meet. It encloses all that remains of Toronto’s original 19th-century Front Street City Hall council chamber, operating from 1845-1899. The historic site presents a variety of changing exhibits related to the art, culture and history of Toronto.
