Large, maze like pub below street level in Old Town Toronto near St. Lawrence Market. Has a few of its own beers - tried Alís Cask Ale, which was pretty decent.
Large range of draughts, all were well served. Servers were extremely friendly, very efficient and attentive. They knew the tap beers pretty well, but were not overwhelmingly knowledgeable about the bottle selection.
Bottle selection was small, but interesting. The highlight was Unibroueís Terrible - neither bartender had ever tried it, so we shared.
Didnít try the food.
Overall great place, definitely worth a try.

A basement bar that is a good introduction to Ontario beers with many taps on hand. It has a tavern-like atmosphere and the room is split between bar and dining area. The service was indifferent and the bar staff were content on just chatting amongst themselves. I had a disappointing plate of food here. I mean, it was one of the most bland and horrible meals Iíve eaten out. For the beer, itís worth a look.

A large, down-to-earth, downstairs bar in downtown Toronto with a good reputation for having an extensive range of craft beers, including Alís Cask Ale brewed specially for them by County Durham Brewing.

Musty smelling, slightly run-down, generally dead during the day. Not the greatest atmosphere but it is in a good location near St. Lawrence market. Decent selection of local and house brews on tap and more than one cask makes the lack of proper glassware forgivable.

Too smoky. Service ranges from grudingly acceptable to downright awful. Good beer list, though. New room is ski lodge/sports bar - ugh. But it does mean more taps!

The most impressive draught list Iíve seen in Toronto with both quantity and quality. Large, spacious, modern basement pub where you can easily forget being in a basement. Friendly, respectful and helpful service. Appropriate decoration makes it spacey and welcoming. The house beers are a bonus, not particularly tasty, but a pleasant addition to the already complete menu.

good pub. Three of us had seven beers and some food and walked out for less than 50 CDN (38 USD). Smoking and non-smoking areas, lots of tables and sofas and billiard tables. Servers not beer knowledgeable,

Great selection. 16 taps. 2 casks. Nice big pub with excellent service. Worth a visit or even more.

If you wanted to drink Canadian beers in Toronto and could only go to one place, this should be it. Spectacular selection of micros in top condition. A wide variety of styles, many beers on hand pump, their own beers as well nicely brewed by County Durham, it seems). The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and gave me a few free samples. Not the most lovely place, but you can spend the night reading the menu instead of looking around.

I liked this place. Lots of taps, most of them good. Seems like a cool place to kill an afternoon. Worth stopping by if in the area. Service can be a bit slow, but still a good place. The food is pretty solid. Rotating taps with some stuff that you donít see in many other places.
