I visited this establishment for the first time on August 10, 2007 (Day 1 of Torontoís Festival of Beer). The beer menu is a fine book. It contained 129 beers from around the world of many different styles, heavy on the Belgians. The atmosphere is upscale casual on the inside, with an ample sized patio. The service was very good, no hovering, and knowledgeable about the product. The value was excellent, the prices were slightly less expensive than some of the other beer restaurants in the city. Note: My visit ran from 3:30pm to 6:00pm

When Iíve visited: Several times since moving downtown. What Iíve had: Rogue Yellow Snow IPA, Mocha Porter and 7 Hop IPA, Central City Red Racer Pale Ale, ESB and IPA, Goose Island Honkerís Ale, and many other beers on tap, sauvignon blanc for the Mrs. What I like: Decent to good selection of U.S. and West Coast drafts that you canít find elsewhere in Ontario, proper glassware, quick if impersonal service, can usually find a seat at the bar if you come early, a good place to bring friends who arenít beer nerds (and you can still drink well). What I dislike: Beer prices are on the high side, food is so laughably expensive that it doesnít warrant trying, I donít go here after 7pm on weekends since thereís typically a massive lineup of douchebags clamouring to get in. Would I go back? Depending on the time of day and whatís on tap, yes. Overall Rating: 70

Good location near the downtown core with a fantastic beer menu. Some of the more hard to find beers (Rochefort 10, Westmalle, Westvletern) are listed but likely not in stock. Still itís the best selection of beers Iíve seen in Toronto and the food is quite good as well. Good weekend atmosphere with live bands on the weekend. Can be a bit pricey but worth it if youíre looking for the complete package.

Beauty beer selection, rotational taps, killer food, great late night atmosphere too. Loved that I had a dressy dinner with some work colleagues, and a wicked party with some buds in the same establishment.

Place was very large, didnt try the food, but they had a huge beer list, lots of taps and tons of bottles. they said they just changed over their menu so I struck out a few times ordering beers but I got one in the end that was very tasty. Service was decent and I would definitely head here again

easy to get to and huge selection. decent service but the place was huge and empty. the prices are steep. close to other, better options but if you have time its worth stopping by.

Visited this place on a cool and sunny Friday afternoon between the lunch rush and dinner. Large indoor and outdoor seating area with prompt seating and service. Excellent selection of Belgian and European beers with a smaller selection of American imports. Bottle list is extensive with a variety of older vintages and rarer bottles. Food selection was broad and diverse as well, and the poutine frites were very good. Overall one of the top places that we visited while in Toronto.

Right across from my hotel. Big Belgian selection. 35 or so taps. Proper glassware. Bartenders were friendly & helpful. Was here early on a Friday, not overly busy

The atmosphere was nice and upscale. a far cry from most of the trendy places I had seen on the main drag. The server was really quick, bringing us our delicious food. The price was little above what Iíd like to pay for a beer, but for the food and service made up for the higher prices.
