Stopped in for some lunch and a drink. Great ambiance and fantastic food. 13 taps are behind the bar with lots of tables and seats at the bar. I had the Brisket Mac & Cheese and a half pint of their Instigator Pale Ale. Service was good. There when needed, not when not.
Overall a great place not just for a drink but for food and to hang with friends.

Great place, great feel. A good selection of beers on tap, all done well so far as I could tell. Itís nice to see this kind of variety from one brewer while keeping the quality, especially with sours in the lineup. The food was quite tasty as well. The server was very friendly and helpful. Definitely a place to return to if Iím in the city again.
Nice space with solid tap offerings of their beers. I enjoyed the Instigator and Zombie Imp. stout while their. Food is great. Service, at least on this night, was less than impressive. Servers standing off to the side of the bar chatting rather than engaging us, the customers!
What a great place, lots of wood inside but it feels light and airy. Bottle shop in front, growlers available, lots of merch (theyíve got nice glasses.) Good beers, some barrel aged sometimes, some funky beers, their standby beers are all good. Pizza here is nice, nothing but good things to say.
Visiting around noon on a Saturday in June. Place was not very busy, and service was quick to seat us. Nice cozy place. We sat in a booth and it was fine. 13 beers on tap, 11 of their own two guest taps, one from great Lakes one from stone. Their own beers were excellent, had two flights of 5 each and got to try ten different beers. The Strawberry ipa was a standout. had some fries that were excellent and some maple licorice wings which were also very good, but a touch dry. Value is there, two people drank and snacked for under $40. Itís waaaaaay out there if you are staying downtown, but itís worth the jaunt out to th junction.
Visited with HogTownHarry spending a good few leisurely hours enjoying the beers and food. Awesome place. Inviting atmosphere with exposed brick, polished wooden floors and soft lighting. Plenty of bar seating and dining tables. The beers are top notch and brewed well over many styles. Another plus is the high quality of food. Itís seriously good here and not crazily priced either for that sort of quality. Great service on a relaxing and not overly busy afternoon. Thereís a retail shop in the front corner as you walk in. A must visit in Toronto.
Visited on a Thursday for lunch. Good sized brewpub, feels more like a restaurant. Excellent service, fast and friendly. Our waitress had an extensive knowledge of their beers and made food pairing suggestions. About a dozen beers on draught with one or two guest taps as well as growlers and bottles to go. Beer flights available (5x4oz for 10-15$). Food-wise, everything we had was very good, I highly recommend the fish tacos. Iíd have no problem going back.
Weird ambiance to this place: mix of hipster wood bars and table tops, but the chairs feel like they come from Swiss Chalet. Large place that carries sound too well, makes for a very noisy location. There were a few times where loud patrons felt like they were shouting directly in my ear because sound was bouncing off the window directly in front of us (we sat in the front window).
Selection is only their beer, with a handful of collaborations and a couple of guest taps. Nice variety of styles, but really only about 10 or so beers to choose from.
Food was great. We came here months ago and were very underwhelmed, but this second go-around was much better. Very tasty tuna tacos, short rib burger and breaded eggplant sandwich. Give their house-made hot sauce a try, itís unique and very tasty.
Visited on a Friday early evening; walked right in and got two seats at the bar. Solid enough place, with lots of tables and a small bar; definitely seemed geared towards groups getting food and their beer, rather than a bar atmosphere (this could certainly shift later on in the evening). The entire service staff on this particular night was comprised of hipster girls. Good service, beers ranging from mediocre to very good, and an enjoyable time overall. Did not try the food, but solid menu that looked very enticing. I do not, however, think this is the lesser known Bellwoods; the beers arenít on that level, at least not yet.
Have visited on a few occasions now, I wish it were closer to home! Great ambiance, love the decor -- check out their awesome taps and interesting ceiling. Love the food selection, have tried a bunch of menu offerings and am always impressed. Beer selection is solid with at good handful of their own always available, if not more. You can try samplers but have patience if itís busy, and it can get quite busy on weekends and evenings. The service is very friendly and helpful and usually quite knowledgeable about their beers. They do not take regular reservations, if you didnít catch that on their website. Have attended a few fun events here, so my rating is probably an average of several visits overall. Would definitely recommend a visit.
