A state of the art brew house and a lively terrace right by the Lachine Canal.

Client Details In 2001, Peter McAuslan approached GRSA to design and build a new brewery to accommodate their growing production needs. Peter McAuslan and Paul Grenier visited and evaluated dozens of potential locations. In the end, a site was chosen just a few hundred metres to the west of the original brewery. After twelve years on St. Ambroise Street, the brewery felt rooted in the community and was an active participant in the local arts scene. Another advantage of the site was its proximity to, and direct access from, the popular Lachine Canal bike path.

Project Info

The new facility has a total floor area of 3,470 m2 (37,370 ft2) including a state-of-the art brew house, fermentation tanks, bottling and packaging lines. The proximity of the Lachine Canal bike path provides a unique opportunity for the brewery to connect to the community. In 2002, an outdoor terrace was constructed between the building and the bike path. Easily accessible by cyclists and in-line skaters, the terrace has become a convivial gathering point for the entire neighbourhood. As the success of the terrace grows, amenities have been added; a small performance stage, an outdoor bar, a festive canopy and flower beds. When the popularity of the terrace exploded, still more infrastructure was needed: a kitchen, a walk-in beer fridge and additional toilets were installed in 2012. These most recent improvements are housed in recycled, marine shipping containers, painted the iconic McAuslan red.
