All Aboard !
Tom opened La Hacienda on Toronto’s Queen Street West in 1988, serving real Mexican food and craft beer. (“What there was of it back then.”) Ten years later he carefully renovated and restored The Paddock Tavern back to its 1940’s Jazz Cocktail Bar glory days. Besides the famous 60 foot bar and leather banquets, The Paddock was known for its fine food, select wine list, classic and creative cocktails and extensive menu of imported and Ontario craft beers. One of the craft beers Tom prominently served at The Paddock was Saint Andre’s Vienna Lager made by Doug Pengelly. The two hit it off and the foundations for Junction Craft Brewing were laid. In his spare time, Tom can be found playing guitar or lacing up his skates for a game of hockey with The Morningstars.
Doug studied chemistry at Carleton University, got into home brewing, and then got so into brewing he completed the Brewmaster Program at the University of California at Davis. A member of the Institute of Brewing and Distilling, he set up Saint Andre Brewing in 1999 to brew commercially. Doug has worked as a brewing industry consultant and was a teacher in the Brewmaster Program at Niagara College. Interested in “how things work”, he bakes his own sourdough bread, restores old French Citroën autos, designs roller coasters, builds motorized Lego masterpieces, makes his own circuit boards, and is handy with a welding torch and plumbers wrench.
