Located in Downtown Toronto, in the busy Yonge St., this cozy bar caters for the conscious beer clientel, although fans of whisky and wine do have a good reason to come here, too. The selection is truly impressive. The number of taps, all featuring decent Canadian craft beer, exceeds the anumber of letter in the alphabet, and the number of bottled beers is equally decent. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Reasonable prices. Did not try the food on my visit here but the menu seems to satisfy every taste. Will gladly come back again.

Truly this is the best beer bar in Toronto! I’ve been coming to Toronto a couple of times a year & checking out ratebeer venues for the last couple of years, but always missed this one out on the basis it would be too busy. I wish I’d tried it sooner! I visited both Saturday & Sunday evening around 17:30. Both times it was nicely busy but with plenty of spaces to sit, perhaps helped by the beautiful weather, meaning the patio was popular. I sat inside but right next to the open floor to ceiling windows at the front meaning I could still catch the rays! With 30 taps including 6 cask, I was spoilt for choice & tried several sample sizes. The rustic wooden interior is completely to my taste. Bar staff (all female on both visits) were friendly & helpful. I didn’t eat but was tempted by being able to put together a platter of meats, cheeses etc. BarVolo is really easy to find & get to, being just round the corner from Wellesley subway. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to try it, but I plan to be back at least twice a year as long as my job brings me back to Toronto!

Wonderful beer bar. I really dig the design and layout of the bar. The wooden booths and large windows allowing natural light through creates an awesome ambiance. The patio is also well utilised. My most recent visit was just after opening and the bustling atmosphere was excellent and didn’t feel over crowded. Solid tap selection of Ontario and Quebec beer, and not to mention a couple of their own house beers. Oh, and there’s also six cask ales too. Food is of good quality. The service from the bar staff is excellent and clearly knowledgeable. A must visit.

ametras  (59) Gatineau, Quebec | May 22, 2015
Visited on a Tuesday evening. Not much place inside in that dark cramped bar, but plenty of seats on the patio. Major drawback, service is at the bar only, but our barman was really friendly and knowledgeable. Extensive selection (about 30 taps) of Ontario’s seasonals, wines and ciders. It also always seems to have a couple kegs from Trou du Diable and Dieu du ciel. Solid bottle list, from memory they had a couple Mikkeller, Oud Beersel, De Molen, De Ranke and more. Food-wise, it’s mostly sandwiches and cheese/charcuterie boards, we had the latter and was excellent. Though I liked my experience here, I won’t be my first stop the next time I’m in town.

The mecca of Toronto’s craft beer scene. Best tap selection in town, great rotation, some rare seasonals and collaborations, nice vibe and good food too. If it’s not enough, they also have an amazing bottle selection. A must visit place in Toronto!

craftycarl21  (92) Seattle, Washington | January 20, 2015
excellent pub/restaurant. numerous trappists and other european brews, like Chimay, Konigshoeven, Mikkeller, and Struise. Decent American selection as well, including Rogue among others. Prices are very high, but part of that is just being in Canada, and the selection is worth it. Didn’t have the food, but looked delicious on the menu. Best place I could find in the city. Updated 1/20/15: Second time back at Volo. Amazing draft list that was probably 90% great Ontario craft brews, a few from Quebec, and I think that’s actually it. Very solid bottle list; had a DDC Solstice D’Ete. Do not miss this place.

JStax  (326) Devola/Marietta, Ohio | January 10, 2015
Stopped in here on a cold wintery Saturday close to lunch time. I think they just opened. There is no dedicated parking here, or metered parking along the street. Actually, we ended up in a metered parking lot about a block away just off of Yonge Street. Not bad really and it wasn’t all that expensive. When we walked in, there was one other group inside. For the duration of my visit, it was just us. One quirk about this place is that for any orders, be it food or drink, you had to place it at the bar. I would hope there was somebody in the kitchen preparing the food, but I can’t really say with any level of certainty. The person running the bar and taking orders was very knowledgeable about all of their beer and food, so that was great. The tap list and bottle list was heavy on the sours, which I have never seen anywhere else. Also, there was mostly Canadian beer on tap, so local centric. When I noticed they had bottles of Cantillon available, the bartender regretfully informed me that they just blew a keg of Classic Geuze the night before. Regardless, their tap list and bottle list was about as good as it gets. I ordered a draft Bellwoods beer and was able to enjoy a bottle of Dieu du Ciel’s cherry berliner weiss. Everybody ordered sandwiches and we shared a pickle and ferment plate as an appetizer. Everybody’s meal was awesome. Prices were decent on the food. Bottle prices were a little high, but drafts were appropriate. This place is badass. One thing I didn’t like about this place is the restrooms. The men’s smelled like piss, and my wife said the women’s toilets would not flush. I don’t know if this is a common issue, but it was very much noticed during my visit. That part was bad, but not nearly bad enough to keep me from coming here again.

My last stop of my Toronto beer tour, we got here at about 1am on a Thursday night and it wasn’t so busy. Smaller than most places i went in town but with a nice large outdoor terrace The interior is dark wood with a huge chalkboard with the best tap list in town. Tons of saisons were on tap which was a style underrepresented at other places in town. 50 cents for 1 oz pours plus 3$ for a more substantial tasting size had me ordering a bunch of stuff. Friendly staff, truly a world class place.
