Longslice Brewery

The tale of Longslice begins in Bracebridge, Ontario with two young brothers, Jimmy and John Peat, and their love of beer. Too young to buy beer, but old enough to buy the ingredients, the Peat brothers started their affair with home brewing together with their dad.


Fast forward a few years: John is now living in Korea, while Jimmy and soon-to-become founding partner, Sebastian Lesch, are sharing an apartment in Little Italy, Toronto. Passionate for beer and full of entrepreneurial spirit, Sebastian and Veronica Lesch, along with the Peat brothers (who are now award-winning home brewers) officially start Longslice Brewery on March 20th, 2014.


Today, the partners have turned their dream into reality, with John as the master brewer of the Longslice Brewery bricks-and-mortar facility and bottle shop in Toronto’s Canary District, along with The Aviary brewpub; a craft beer sports bar in partnership with The Dock Ellis.


Longslice Brewery is proud to call Toronto their home and offers a wide array of award-winning beer, including lagers, ales, sours and more. If you can dream it, the Longslice Brewery team can brew it!

The Collins English Dictionary defines Sploosh as a verb meaning ‘to splash about’. The Urban Dictionary defines it as... Well let’s just say it’s similar to the feeling you’re gonna get when you sip on this quaffable quencher! Quaffable is of course defined as ‘easy and enjoyable to drink’, and let us tell you that nothing is easier to drink than a Cherry Sploosh. It tastes like a sparkling water with a hint of cherry. You’ll be asking yourself – is this even a beer?!
