Stopped by for a too-brief visit while changing planes enroute BRU to DCA, accompanied by Kyle, who I met at Bar Hop. We arrived before 5, so our first stop was the bottle shop next door. It should probably be listed as a separate place, because it has different hours, and itís kinda separate, in the sense that you canít by bottles and drink them next door in the brewpub. Anyway, the bottleshop was a bit disappointing since they only had two bottles on offer, whereas the website listed a dozen or so. The brewpub side more than made up for that - a dozen or so beers on tap included two or three guests, and there were a lot of interesting bottles as well. Service was prompt and friendly, they even arranged a taxi to get me back to the airport. 15 barrel brew set-up in the back, small fermentation vessels, bar and picnic tables up front with a small patio. Iíll have to return when I can spend a decent amount of time here.

Williamsburg-like yound crowd filled this place manyfolds its capacity. Very pleasant and laidback atmosphere. Among the very top Canadian places to have a beer in my mind. Varied array of beers including pretty good Saisons and hoppy ales with a convincing American influence and limited residual sugars unlike most of their Eastern Canada peers. The place can probably gather three times as many people when the garage door opening on the terrace is open. The bottle shop next door is a great addition and its prices are really reasonable.

Looks like a garage with a few tables and a medium and very woody bar. I am looking forward to the patio, the potential rooftop, and we think more patio out in the back.
I hear the food is good but I go for the beers.Every beer was very good, a reasonable or better representation of the style. A Bit out of the way in a hip area, it was worth the trip. Reasonable pricing. Good environment, it was nice to see young couples and their kids about.Very good service,

A brand spanking new addition to the Toronto beer scene. A lovely large space up front. Bright and airy (especially considering itís a former garage). There are 20 seats upstairs and 20 down. A few tables and a smallish (~8 seat) bar. The majority of the space is the actual brewery which is kitted out with some nice shiny new toys and is easily visible from every part of the interior. The beers are solid and quite unique. The IIPA was my favourite of the lot but none were bad. The food is great too - I like that there are actually reasonably priced snacks in here that show some creativity (4 grilled duck hearts on a skewer with a charred jalapeno oil sauce for 4 bucks). Theyíve got a winner on their hands here - canít wait to see the patio open later on.

Bellwoods is reminiscent of those cool microbreweries on the west coast that operate in an old garage. The decor is spartan, with old farm tables and a nice modern industrial bar. 8 excellent beers on tap, top notch, with 5 Belgian import bottles and 3 ciders, limited yet intriguing menu, with some Asian influence. Brewery is visible in the back, with wood barrels for future projects. The brewery will expend next door next year, and a store which should open on a more regular basis in the next few months. Service was friendly. Samplers are available at 3$ for 4 ounce samples.

Maybe I had too much sun or jet lag, but I canít say enough about this place. Atmosphere is elegant park bench, ridiculous until you are there. Service was quirky but acceptable and fun. Beer was all theirs, but so good I am happy they didnít ruin it with foreigners. Food was well done bohemian fare, try the jalapeŮo roasted duck hearts. I wish I still lived in TO.

This was my favorite stop in Toronto. I know the ratings are pretty solid for this place, but somehow I felt it was underrated. A small place with an outdoor patio (that I almost missed because there is no sign), a garage door that could close off the patio, and a few tables/small bar then all the tanks and brewing equipment (there might be seats upstairs but I didnít venture up there). Anyway it was packed on a Thursday evening. Top notch beer selection - excellent. They had maybe 8-10 of their own beers (including unique offerings such as berliner weisse, wine barrel aged tripel, single hop IPA, collaboration IIPA, imperial stout, 2 different saisons, etc). They have a few guest taps and a decent bottle selection (including Westy 12 for $30 if you so desire). Not only do they have a phenomenal beer list, but the beers are actually really good. Of the 5 I tried, lowest rated was a 3.7, highest 4.1. I guess you could find fault with their food menu - it is small, mostly things like meat plate, cheese plate, etc. and fairly expensive. So I didnít order any food. But what I saw (and smelled) looked really good too. Service was great too - although it was busy, our waiter kept coming back and making sure we were ok. Overall - this is a brewpub you must check out if in Toronto, you wonít be disappointed.

Been a few times now. The atmosphere is great, picnic tables and seats at the bar in a small space. Patio is spartan but pleasantly shady in comparison to most, and just about doubles the capacity of the bar. Tap list is good, generally having a solid selection of their house brews in a variety of styles. Bottle list is also pretty impressive but I have never ordered any of them, sticking with the house beers. Food menu is interesting, mix of gourmet snacks and larger meals. What I have tried has been great. Food prices are pretty high for some things. A less gourmet cheese plate option would great, for example. Beer prices are a touch on the high side but generally worth it for the quality. Bottle and growler prices are not bad, but sales are currently infrequent. Look for more frequent sales down the road. Servers are all super friendly and pretty knowledgeable, and will find out the answer if they donít already know. Overall it is a must visit for out of towners.

From outside this place does not look like much. Inside you will be welcomed with most attentive staff there is in Toronto. They offer generous samplers , food menu is limited but everything tasted great. For quality they offer prices are very reasonable. Beer is excellent. Toronto needed such place to rise benchmark.

When I visited: April 2012.
What I had: Lost River Baltic Porter, Witchshark Imperial IPA, Berliner Weisse, various snacks, dessert.
What I liked: Comfortable, welcoming atmosphere, excellent timely service, delicious food and beer. Bellwoods is cranking out high quality takes on under-represented styles and they blow Mill St. and Granite out of the water. Iíll be interested to see how other newcomers - like the Indie Alehouse - stack up.
What I disliked: Nothing. My only criticism is that the beer, while very good, falls short of greatness. These guys will continue to evolve, though, and I think their best is yet to come.
Would I go back? Absolutely.
Overall Rating: 84
