This is a cozy bar/brewpub in downtown Toronto. It is set in a basement and there is an area of couches around a fireplace, which is right where we headed on a rainy, dreary, day. It was so cozy, I just wanted to settle in and stay there for the rest of the day. Anyway, they offer quite a few drafts, about 5 of the Cíest What? beers, some regulars, and then about 15 rotating taps. All Canadian offerings. They also have 4 casks on regularly. The food menu is mostly standard pub fare - I got the shephardís pie which was cheesy but very tasty. Prices are on the high side for beer (I think around $5 for a 300 ml pour) but probably comparable to the rest of places in downtown Toronto. Service can be a little slow when youíre in the couches section, but I didnít mind. Overall I had a great time here and strongly recommend it (especially if itís a nasty day outside!).

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.

My local pub. Friendly, knowledgable staff, good selection of Ontario beers, normally have 5 casks available. Good food, at reasonable prices.

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.
