Avling Brewery is about to make its big reveal in Leslieville.

The east end’s newest brewery, which has been under construction for a year, released a sneak peek of its inaugural lineup of beers. The roster includes a Baltic porter, pilsner, saison, and an IPA.

Located in a former food distribution centre near Queen St. East and Pape Ave., Avling will include not only a brewhouse but also a bar and restaurant in a 5,000-square-foot space.

Avling Brewery is being founded by Max Meighen, a brewer and former chef who worked at several breweries in London, England before moving to Toronto.

Stay tuned for a launch date. Check out avling.ca for more information.
