Red Tape Brewery, a new bespoke brewery in Toronto, Ontario, will open its doors at 159 Main Street to customers Wednesday, December 2. Red Tape Brewery is a family-run, Indigenous-owned brewery that creates small-batch, custom beer for life’s milestones. Red Tape not only creates custom brews, personalized to the last detail, but will also have a tap room and storefront with their featured beers.

Red Tape Brewery was created by Sarabeth and Sean Holden. The first Red Tape brew available to customers in take-out cans this week is the That Was Easy Pale Ale.

The idea for Red Tape’s bespoke brewing was born along with Sarabeth and Sean’s son Raymond. Their friends and family are located far from Toronto, but they wanted something special for everyone to open when they heard the news of Raymond’s arrival. In August 2017 Sean brewed a Celebration Saison which was bottled champagne style, and topped off with caged corks. Sarabeth designed labels with a detailed description before sending these bottles to family and close friends. When Raymond arrived January 11, 2018, the night was filled with the sound of corks popping across the land as our family and close friends popped the Celebration Saison. It was truly memorable as photos came in of ecstatic faces enjoying Celebration Saison with Sarabeth and Sean’s news.

Red Tape makes fresh beers that feel like home. Family-owned and run, Red Tape blends unique flavours and premium ingredients into custom beers designed and inspired by the customer. From our Tap Room to your special events, from our family to yours.
