yeah, so. I’d hate to admit I was a bit apprehensive about this place. I have not had good luck with ye olde beer place in strip mall routine prior to this one. Small cozy place with a decent sized bar and patio to enjoy for the two months of Canadian summer. Large beer menu with Ontario beers, one from California, and Rodenbach grandcru. I had some Ontario IPAs, a fucking delicious grilled cheese and a bowl of soup. My nerves were eased. This place gave me a minor erection.

When I visited: Mid-October 2014. What I had: Muskoka Harvest Ale, St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, and Rogue Brutal IPA on tap, samples of Black Swan Porter and Wellington Carved Out Pumpkin, Vegetable Curry over Rice for me, Southwest Chicken Wrap with Mixed Green Salad and a few glasses of white wine for my better half. What I liked: Comfy pub ambience, no trouble finding a table, large draft list with good style variation, tasty and affordable food, our server was a lot of fun, I won a Hacker Pschorr mug as part of an Oktoberfest quiz that the bar was doing. What I disliked: Not as many rarities as I anticipated (whether on tap or in bottle), both the Black Swan and Wellington beers failed to impress. Would I go back? Yes. While my samples fell flat, the pints and food were stellar, and overall The Elbow is a great beer bar that I would happily frequent again. Overall Rating: 82

Always a rare sought after brew or hard to get one-off on Tap. 32 Craft brews on tap and a cask - decent import bottle selection, the only cask engine in the twiri cities region and good food at a good price. THE place to drink in KW if you are a craft beer lover

My go-to spot for excellent food and a great selection of beers. I always love trying whatever they have on cask. The service is fantastic. All of the servers are very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers they have available.

A not-so-great location, and a pretty small place. A huge number of (rotating) taps. The selection is the best in K-W-Cambridge for sure. Maybe technically not as large a selection as BeerTown, but definitely a BETTER selection. And also large. Rotating Rogue tap ("Mogul Madness" when I was there), as well as other rotating taps. Menus can’t keep up with their constantly changing selection. Rotating cask. Food was good. The "snacks" part of the menu had some very interesting and good-looking items. Prices for beer are good. The beer is clearly enough to keep me coming back here. 5oz sample glasses of anything on tap available, which is nice.
