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.

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!

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.

Trendy, fashionable place. Seems like a place all the hipsters would go to in the area. Great selection of beer from the brewery you can watch as you drink. Clean simple design, a cool place to hang out. Try the duck hearts...booooootiful.

Little spot with a garage door in a quieter end of town. Very nice. food seems locally sourced and a bit higher end than standard pub fare. seems like all the food is as locally sourced as possible. They have a nice bottled beer selection as well that is supplied by the folks over at Barvolo, so there are a few rarities as guest bottles there. Overall, decent place with great beer.

Visited March 23, 2013. Located in what is billed as Torontoís "Little Portugal", Bellwoods Brewery sits on a tiny lot that used to be a mechanicís garage. The garage door is still there, and goes up in warmer months to connect the small interior to a front patio. The frequently updated Draught menu listed ten beers on my colder-than-usual March Saturday afternoon visit. I started with the Common Session Ale, and was very pleasantly surprised by the mini-explosion of tropical citrus flavour. Itís deceptively powerful for a 4.6% ale, and I could easily make it my one beer of the visit. I moved up, however, to the 6.4% Monogamy single hop (Summit) pale ale. Not my favourite of the three pints I had here, itís a light yellow colour with not so much flavour as the Common. Itís worth mentioning at this point that the food menu is somewhat limited, somewhat pricey, and eclectic. I stuck with a $4.00 bread and butter plate to take the edge off the suds. No "pub food" here. Last beer for me was the Witchshark, combining two nasty iconic images into one 9% double IPA, served in smaller goblets. Iíve had double IPAs and, indeed, single IPAs that kind of hopped me right off the stool, but this wasnít one of them. Itís delicious, not overpowering, and if I was staying overnight nearby I could sip on three of these liíl gobs in an evening before slowly pointing my feet towards a spot to lie down! Bellwoods is well worth the journey out of the city centre for visitors to Toronto, and locals should definitely make the effort to come here as well. No grand banner or neon sign to announce the place, just a small gas station-like sign with a red bell logo to welcome you. Take the Dundas or Queen streetcars to Ossington and walk south or north respectively for five minutes or so. Or take the Bloor subway line to Ossington station and catch the Ossington 61 bus south to the sign of the red bell at Argyle Street. Itís a cool area to wander around. Highly recommended.

This place has had a great start. It has great spacce, particularly in the summer. The location on Ossington is cool. It needs a wider selection, but that will no doubt come with time.

Really nice looking space, but very small. Donít go on a Saturday - service definitely suffers when then place is busy. The food is overpriced but okay, bottle selection is good, their own beer is the best in the province.

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.
