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.

Visited at the opening on October 10th, 2014. Located on a relatively quiet street (except for some buses), a nice eclectic and small brewpub, with a terrasse that double its size. A large garage door separate the indoor part and the terrasse, so when its open it has an open air feeling, it was great on that day. The decor is recycled furniture and items, really nothing flashy here. There is a mezzanine where you can watch the action in the brewery room while you eat and drink. The service was great, fast and knowledgeable, very friendly and just like at Indie Alehouse, they gave me water with out me asking for it. I had two beer, an IPA and a Baltic porter, very interesting but well made. I also ate some bread from a local bakery with some homemade butter, very delicious. The bottle shop next door is quite nice, with opening hours different from the brewpub. Itís a short walk from Dundas from the north and Queen from the south. This is a kick ass brewpub, a must visit!

Great concept of opening the garage door to make a nice patio, sitting out there while they are BBQíing is wonderful. Always have some good new beers, bottle shop next door for 4 packs, nice simple but hearty food. Great place to visit before going to Bellwoods park!

This place is WOW. Great indy look but very clean. Lots of old wooden tables and chairs, picnic benches, and a large sidewalk patio. The brewery equipment is just behind some safety glass. Food is good but a bit pricy for anything beyond finger food. Drinks are more moderately priced and ever changing. Retail is in the garage bay beside the pub. Just a cooler, some shirts, glassware, and a till. Again, very indy, but very cool!

A cool little brewery. Liked how you can purchase bottles there until 11pm. The bar side was too crowded to stay for a drink, but it looked like they had a good list of beers. Definitely worth checking out if youíre in Toronto.

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.

Great little place. In an old garage, well decorated, with brewing facilities in plain site. Service was good, despite it being crowded. Selection of house brews, "guest taps" (DDC frequently), and a selection of bottles from Belgium and Quebec (of very high quality). 26 bottles the last time I went. Iíve tried sampling everything each time I go, and so far everythingís been good. Witchshark, however, is the clear overall winner. The store next door sometimes has good selection, sometimes only 1 beer. Decent value - the food is expensive, but it is of high quality. I love coming here any time Iím on the West side of Toronto.

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.

Great little place. Outdoor patio with heaters for nicer weather, otherwise not as much seating inside. Offered about 10 of their own beer on draft and about as many fantastic bottle selections. Draft selections were all unique and some were some type of one-off hybrid products. Menu was small but the food offered was great. That our server knew the proper temperatures to serve and drink the different beer styles impressed us a lot.
