Strange Brew Filming Locations:

The theatre in the beginning of the movie was University theatre on Bloor Street in Toronto that was closed down in 1986. It is currently a Pottery Barn. [Thanks to Daniel Chrisjohn]

Saw the movie again for the first time in years on CBC recently. Had to laugh when I recognized half of the locations in my neighbourhood, west toronto. The McKenzie house - Uno Road in the Royal York/Queensway area, located approximately behind the current beer store on Queensway.

Where the cops start to take chase - Lakeshore/Superior in Mimico - where the Canadiana restaurant is (shown in the movie too!)

The brewery building exteriors - the former Hearn power generation facility in the Toronto portlands.

The mental institute is the RC Harris water treatment facility in the Toronto eastern beach. [Thanks to Dave Tabor]

The office of the brewery was the Carquest Canada Head Office in Rexdale, ON

LX Preview

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!

Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
