Nearly a year after fire badly damaged a Waterloo brewery, the taps will soon be flowing once again.

The brewery is housing in a building that's more than a century old. Last year's fire started near the wood-fire brick oven, and firefighters struggling while battling the blaze because of the way a drop ceiling had been installed.
