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. I’ve tried sampling everything each time I go, and so far everything’s 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 I’m on the West side of Toronto.

Man is this place popular. I arrived on a Thursday just before opening and already there was a queue of almost two dozen folks. There’s an awesome patio that fills up straight away on a nice day. I grabbed a seat at the bar so service was prompt. The beers can be purchased in taster size or full pours. All but one of the beers on tap was hoppy stuff. Food was tasty but may not be bang for buck if you prefer larger portions. It’s a cool space here and I was happy to linger and enjoy the beers. There’s also a retail shop next door for takeaways.

Visited on a Monday for dinner. Less than an hour after opening the place was almost full, our hostess seated us on a large table that we could have had to share with the next patrons. Really nice atmosphere, wood tables, framed prints of their labels on the walls and a lot of patio seating. Selection-wise a dozen house beers, half on tap, the other half being their reserve bottles (those were priced a bit steep : 20-25$). Also around twenty guest bottles (from memory they had Trou du Diable sours, De Molen stouts and Stillwater saisons). Service was friendly and efficient, they seemed to know their products very well. We also tried a couple items on the food menu and everything we had was absolutely fantastic. I can’t wait to come back.

Outstanding brewpub, great vibe, great beers, great food! What more can we ask for? These guys are clearly brewing magicians, releasing addicting beers ranging from the lightest hoppy session ale to the heaviest craziest barrel-aged spice-infused imperial stout. Meat and cheese boards are simply fantastic too, make sure to share as portions are quite large. Overall an unforgettable experience, cheers guys and keep up the great work!

My favourite brewpub in the city. Lovely converted loft space. Awesome covered patio out front that is doubles the seating. You can’t go wrong with any of Bellwoods beers, but if you don’t fancy drinking one of theirs, they have an extensive and impressive list of bottles. Food is great. The steak is one of the best I’ve had in the city. The cheese board is also one of the best I’ve had. The menu changes seasonally, giving a nice change of pace every now and again. My only complaint is how tiny the indoor space is, making for potentially long waits in the cold months.

Great spot-- not a lot of space and very popular, but worth the wait. Cool vibe, interesting layout (we sat in the loft area overlooking the big steel tanks), great food, amazing beers. Despite it being mega-busy, our server was attentive and knowledgable. Highly recommended.

Yeah, this place is no joke. Very cool ambiance with a main bar area with tables and a long, narrow mezzanine acting as almost a 2nd floor bar overlooking the main floor and the brewhouse. No standing at the bar which I still will never understand unless you’re a legit restaurant, but nevertheless only waited 15 minutes or so for a couple seats upstairs. Beers were excellent, service was prompt and very friendly, and to go bottles were a bit expensive ($8/500 mL) but right there and convenient to purchase next door. Go here.

Une boutique et une chaleureuse terrasse attachés à un restaurant rempli de magnifiques gens et liquides. La cuisine et le service sont sans taches et à l’image de celle produite par la marque de commerce. Un incontournable pour l’Amérique entière.

Have visited on numerous occasions. Brewpub machinery is in the back with limited seating inside and upstairs, but they’ve added a patio with heaters -- as a result, this place is constantly packed. Delicious beers are usually available, several on tap and many more in bottles (though the latter can get expensive), and some events provide even better offerings with cask beers. In the summer there were fun jazz bands playing amongst the brewing equipment, behind the glass! (Side note: Love the tap handles at the bar, they use all sorts of different wood.) Food is sometimes strange but usually tasty and a lot of it is made or cured in-house. Brewery bottleshop is right next door, plus they sell t-shirts and other paraphernalia. This is certainly one of the top beer bars in Toronto, and they’re expanding soon! This location is right on the TTC bus route down from Ossington so it’s easy to get to for travellers. Definitely worth a visit, and good luck finding a seat.

Great concept of opening the garage door to make a nice patio, sitting out there while they are BBQ’ing 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!

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. It’s a short walk from Dundas from the north and Queen from the south. This is a kick ass brewpub, a must visit!
