In addition to shopping, Stackt Market will have a food and beverage program led by on-site Belgian Moon Brewery that will feature experiences like a rotating chefs’ platform and selection of craft beer varieties alongside seasonal food pairings from Toronto’s greatest chefs.

Belgian Moon’s state-of-the-art brewery will allow the team to brew fresh, directly on-site. This means that small batches of popular variants available in the US, such as Mango Wheat, and new, seasonal recipes will be able to be produced.
