It doesnít get better than this in Toronto when it comes to selection. This place has a massive selection of amazing beers from the US and the rest of the world. Iíve gotten many of my most-wanted-but-hard-to-find beers from here. An impressive vintages menu, unfortunately most of what I to try is out of stock. Great atmosphere and a knowledgeable staff. Food is good too!

Bright and spacious bistro in downtown Toronto. Itís upmarket yet retains a comfortable atmosphere to enjoy a few beers. Decent tap selection with slightly high prices. The bottle list is impressive with vintages and a good Belgian range. Bar staff were professional and had good knowledge about the beers. I didnít eat but full menu available. Nice patio. Definitely worth a look.

A posh location in the heart of downtown, friendly informed staff and an extensive tap/bottle list. Reasonable 6$ for 3 tasting set of anything on tap. High ceilings, big bar area and smaller restaurant area. Not that big but the vaulting ceiling makes the space feel larger. A nice place and Iíd like to go back to try the food.

This is my favourite beer place in Toronto. Very knowledgeable staff, with a great beer selection and interesting things in their cellar. This place introduced me to the wonderful world of beer. A great place to learn since there is a detailed description for each beer, recommended beer pairings, and failing all that, the staff are very happy to help you pick out something. Phenomenal food, especially since Michelle is back in the kitchen.

Simply stunning upscale bistro. Food is great and beer bottle list very surprising with vintages and 5 year verticals available. Tap list is a little mundane. Pricing is a bit high, but inline with the trendy atmosphere. A must for a nice night out.

I stumbled across this gem in the hopes of replacing the once great Volo with something more classy. This place is fabulous, and Iím slowly becoming a regular. The staff are avid beer enthusiasts (not just reading from a cue card) and so down to earth - not to mention all of the them are gorgeous, yet approachable and darn quick. The atmosphere is so stylized and classy. I canít speak too much for the food because I go for the beer, and when I dip into the food-stash Iím usually quite plastered (will attempt more objective deduction later). The selection is extensive and reasonably priced. The only potential drawback is that given itís location on King there are a lot of pompous and beer-ignorant business men that go there for image - but some of them are quite nice (beware of snakes). All in all, this place has a LOT of personality and charm. They know what theyíre doing, and they do it well.
