Dropped in to see the Netherlands play Argentina in the World Cup Semifinals on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Nice ambiance with big garage doors opening to outside seating. Four beers on tap, available as a flight. Decent brews. A really welcome surprise in the craft beer desert of NW Ontario.

Based on earlier comments, reviews and things I’ve heard, it seems like the place is constantly improving. They’ve added seasonals, which is great, and the service was fairly good. Also, all of the food was quite tasty and well-priced.
We called ahead and got a tour, which ended with samples of the not-yet-filtered new IPA seasonal they were brewing.

Other than our utterly poor reception at the door, the service was pretty good. Beer for only 5 dollars, which is a good value. Tasty bar food as far as we could tell. We’d go back. Looking forward to the seasonal beers.

Cool atmosphere in an old fire station, including the fire poles. Service was a bit disorganized but friendly. We tried the grilled cheese sandwiches which were pretty good. The beers are pretty basic, but the Amber is quite nice and apparently, eventually, they’ll do seasonals. Growlers are available, as well as quite a bit of merchandise. Overall not bad for a small town in Northern Ontario.

They’ve got their 3 own beers... which are average. A few macro taps as well. Good food and service. Nothing too pricey either.

Updated rating: Service has improved considerably, as has the food. Could do with a few more draft selections, but nice to see that the kinks are being ironed out.
Converted firehall brewpub. Ambiance is pretty cool. It has kind of a vintage feel and the ability to open the entire place up on nice days is beneficial. The service was relatively quick, but completely disorganized. At least three different servers thought they were working our table, while some tables weren’t getting served at all (the place was only at 1/3 full at the time). There was a ton of staff on the floor, but no one seemed to know what they were doing. The food was solid, but nothing special. The house beer is mediocre at best, and the few other choices were limited. It’s still early days, but there is clearly LOTS of room for improvement.
