One of my default haunts in Toronto. Basement bar, fairly good space with a pooltable and fireplace. Service can vary, but sitting at the bar usually guarantees prompt service. food is a good value, but youíre here for the beer- a large amount of ontario craft taps with a few occasional surprises from Quebec. Only suggestion - rotate the taps a bit more. Would love to see more seasonalís here. usually 3-5 casks running, which usually provide the more interesting beers here.

One of the best pubs for beer lovers in Toronto. Great menu at fair prices, too. Recommended.

Located downstairs from street level,this is a homey cozy little place, not flashy, just comfortable. For me thatís part of the appeal. Nice cask offerings. Old school vibe-- full pints only, no tastings! On slow nights they close early, as I found out to my disappointment. Still managed to squeeze in a pint, even though every other table had the chairs turned upon them and the barkeep was literally drumming his fingers waiting for us to leave. Iíd come back though. Never tried the food.

Great tap list of mostly Ontario craft brews, with a few of their own. Some decent bottles, but why bother with this tap list. Love the cozy ambience with brick and stone walls and fireplaces. If youíre lucky youíl get a couch. Nice place to be if itís nasty outside.

Good selection of beers which are all described on a proper beer menu with strength, brewery and location and IBUs. For a Brit like me the beer was served too cold, but improved in flavour after being left for a few minutes to warm up. Food was fine (a sharing place of Mexican snacks).

Went here and sat on the resto side because the lounge side was full. There was a decent jazz band going when we got there, but couldnít hear much in the other room. Sat at the bar there but service was fairly average. Decent beers on tap mostly, as well as some good casks. Had teh staggering pig and it was pretty average. Wouldnít eat here again if I came to try some more of the casks.

Always a great selection of Canadian craft brews here. Seasonals and cask ales are a bonus. Food is good and reasonably priced. Had a delicious corned beef sandwich made with their Rye beer - a special for "Craft Beer Week". Their Rye beer itself is great, though I am sorry to say I havenít seen their "Mild Brown Ale" on the menu for years. It mustíve been discontinued, which is a shame, because it was different and interesting.
