This is a really busy spot in what appears to be the hipster block of Toronto. Got a place at the bar though tables had longer waits. They have a pretty small selection of beers but they are pretty good and you can get sample sized pours. I got a huge 500ml bottle of one of their beers though, i would recommend sharing those. The service was really good, especially the cute 2nd blonde haired bartender I got. The food was good had some really nicely done fried chicken. Overall this is a good place. The bottleshop was pretty nondeScript.
Visited on Sunday afternoon, place was full with a waiting list. They have around 6 big stools outdoor, some heating but nothing that would actually make it bare able to sit outside. Inside has a long bar with the brewery equipment at the end and dozen of tables, and a narrow second floor balcony with some small tables. Tap selection is 6-8 Bellwood’s with 2 guest taps, no flights, but they pour 4 oz glasses. Bottles list includes some more rare stuff. Ambiance is nice, they serve food which people seems to enjoy but I didn’t had any. Store next door had the exact same bottles that were on tap, that a pity.... Overall fun, good beers and worth a visit.
Beau petit brouepub, avec une jolie petite terrasse. Service hyper sympathique et efficace. Les prix sont corrects. La nourriture semble délicieuse (les frites sont très bonnes). Évidemment on y va surtout pour la bière qui est sublime la plupart du temps.
Really nice busy brewpub in Toronto. If you’re on a layover (like I was) you can take the airport train to Bloor, then Bloor Dundas west subway to Ossington, and the Ossingnton bus stops right in front of Bellwoods. Anyway nice patio and indoor bar. Decent food. Good fast and friendly service but perhaps not as informative about the beers as they would be when its not so busy. (Whenever that might be). Good selection of Bellwoods and guest taps and a great (but expensive) bottle list. A good stop in Toronto.
Located in the Portuguese quarter, this informal and relaxed brewpub is a must-visit when in Toronto. The selection includes delicious own brews on taps and in bottles as well as some other decent bottled craft beers. The staff are knowledgeable and very friendly. Reasonable prices. Flights available. Did not try the food but it looked okay. There is a retail store right next door. It is really worth the trip from the strict centre of the city.
Man is this place popular. I arrived on a Thursday just before opening and already there was a queue of almost two dozen folks. There’s an awesome patio that fills up straight away on a nice day. I grabbed a seat at the bar so service was prompt. The beers can be purchased in taster size or full pours. All but one of the beers on tap was hoppy stuff. Food was tasty but may not be bang for buck if you prefer larger portions. It’s a cool space here and I was happy to linger and enjoy the beers. There’s also a retail shop next door for takeaways.
Visited on a Monday for dinner. Less than an hour after opening the place was almost full, our hostess seated us on a large table that we could have had to share with the next patrons. Really nice atmosphere, wood tables, framed prints of their labels on the walls and a lot of patio seating. Selection-wise a dozen house beers, half on tap, the other half being their reserve bottles (those were priced a bit steep : 20-25$). Also around twenty guest bottles (from memory they had Trou du Diable sours, De Molen stouts and Stillwater saisons). Service was friendly and efficient, they seemed to know their products very well. We also tried a couple items on the food menu and everything we had was absolutely fantastic. I can’t wait to come back.
Outstanding brewpub, great vibe, great beers, great food! What more can we ask for? These guys are clearly brewing magicians, releasing addicting beers ranging from the lightest hoppy session ale to the heaviest craziest barrel-aged spice-infused imperial stout. Meat and cheese boards are simply fantastic too, make sure to share as portions are quite large. Overall an unforgettable experience, cheers guys and keep up the great work!
