Located in Historical Part in north part of Toronto. When went there is very quiet. Service was decent. Had only beer. They offer sampler of their beers. They do usually one seasonal beer. Beer on average was ok not great. Offered good value. Scenery was excellent but place itself seemed bit cold. Felt more as it was tourist attraction than actual brewpub. Which is not a bad thing. Worth of visiting if around.

We did a tour of the grounds and the brewery which was kind of neat. The beers brewed on site had a strong oak character from the barrel aging. I have not been back since so I can’t verify if the oak has mellowed as predicted. The bottles they are producing for sale at the LCBO and one offs at various events have generally been good. Mandatory to visit if you are there already. Worth making a trek out for just to see the site and the experience. Food in the pub/restaurant is pretty limited but tasty.

Visited on a hot Friday evening in mid-August, this heritage site is certainly worth touring and soaking up the history if you have time. Our tour guide was funny and informative, showing us the Mill and the Cooper’s buildings before taking us to the brewery. The brewer was on site to give us a run-down of the old ways of brewing and how they use a similar process to make the four beers they have on cask today. Unfortunately the porter was not ready (our friends picked up a growler instead), but the brown, IPA and stout were all excellent and interesting to try. There is a restaurant just across the hall downstairs where we tried a Ploughman’s lunch (not served with bread), a tourtiere, and a chilli, all tasty and simple and filling. Would recommend visiting if you can get there.

Business lunch here. If you do that, you can park for free and stroll the grounds, those ar pluses. You eat at a family restaurant in the basement. The brewery itself is small and by a side room, and its only casks. They only serve contract made on-taps from their partner Trafalgar. Unfortunately a weaker reputation for those. Go to the tasting, try the casks. I do not know how long the growlers will last as nothing is added to these. But I was happy with the casks. Come for that, the restaurant is rather ordinary, though service was good.
