This is one of the better beer bars and microbreweries in Toronto. Their own beers are some of the best available which includes a modest selection of other Canadians beers, especially from Ontario. Not bad food either.

Ask for Joan. She is a grumpy, lovely, knowledgeable curmudgeon, who knows beer inside out and backwards! The beer selection is extraordinary, with at least 3 on cask at all times. Lots of special events, including single malt tastings. The food menu could use an overhaul, but on the libation side you will noot be disappointed.

Went on a night with live music, great beer selection; if only domestic, knowledgable staff and good service.

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 C’est 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 shephard’s 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 you’re in the couches section, but I didn’t mind. Overall I had a great time here and strongly recommend it (especially if it’s 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 you’re 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 seasonal’s 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 that’s 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. I’d 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 you’re lucky you’l get a couch. Nice place to be if it’s nasty outside.
