Best Toronto brewery for German style beer. Always an outstanding list of well brewed beers to choose from. Solid lineup, super friendly staff. Say hi to the brewers as they stop to chill over a quick beer before going home. Tiny location, right next door to Toronto Distillery.

A funky workshop brewery with little nice touches everywhere. Service was solid but nothing special. Tons on tap so a tickers delight though their high prices are not warranted. Beer was mostly OK with a few stand outs. No food.

Tucked away in an industrial estate part of town. The taproom is right in the brewery with communal tables and has a well lived in feel. Ten taps including a cask offering. They do sample size pours. The beers are clean but pretty dull flavour profiles. The sort of beers geared to bring people over from the mass swill and it seems to be working for them. Friendly folks here. Food truck outside. A good place to start the day then head over to Indie Ale House for the good stuff.

Visited on a quiet Saturday afternoon in November 2013 after a long trek by TTC. I think we were on a bit of a birthday pub crawl so this was a great location to begin. Many house beers were pouring and we tried several tasty samples, and several just-OK samples. The place definitely has a reclaimed-industrial feel, and the service is very friendly and knowledgeable about beer and brewing. Planning to go back soon, it’s just a bit of a hike to get there.

Stumbled in here during the Junction Brewery & Bar Crawl & had a fun & somewhat drunken good time. A good variety of their brews with the downside being some of their beer is muddled & muddy. There are bags of malt everywhere in this place, it looks like an outtake from a crappy war move if you imagine them as sand bags. Good value on the pours but the industrial nature of it all makes me sad.

2013-XX. Located in a industrial park area fairly close to the trendy Annex/Junction neighbourhoods the brewery has managed to put some character into what could easily have been a pretty barren industrial space. A good number of their own beers on tap, available as sampler sizes and up I believe. The beers range from pretty mediocre to pretty good depending on the beer and your personal tastes. Bottles available to go, selection may vary from what is on tap. Worth a visit, great spot to try a few new ones at non-committal sizes but if I am getting out to this end of town I am likely headed to Indie Alehouse, which actually makes this potentially a good first stop on a pub crawl in this part of town!

always something new brewed here. Cool area in the Junction if you are here in the times they are open. Friendly tasting tables.

Tap room located in the brewery. Cool place to have a few beers from the Junction brewery. Most available. Limited tables, however it is a brewery. Decor is pretty cool all with a locomotive theme. Staff are friendly.

Popped in with gethinbeer recently on his trip to Toronto. Located in an industrial park it has a very cool vibe. Long wooden/iron tables run through the middle of the room with some smaller tables scattered throughout. It kind of reminds me of Barcade in Brooklyn, but without any of the video games. Some industrial looking equipment kicking around the space as well. Has a very cool vibe and the folks pouring the beer are very nice. The beer is only okay - three of them tasted very similar and kind of bland at that. I might be the only one who thinks that because they were doing a pretty busy bottle/growler business when we were in. Some of the flavours were quite muddled (FYI - don’t use UK and European and American hops in the same beer and expect it to be awesome because it will just taste muddled). I really wish these guys the best because the area is up and coming and they seem pretty nice, but I think they need to step up their game.

This is really just a brewery with a tap room. But when you walk in, there’s a few tables and couches and they pour 5 oz or 10 oz glasses - Ontario regulations say that any sizes over 12 oz they would need a different license. Anyway, they have a rotating selection of taps as well as some contract beers - there was one when I was around. The place is kind of cool, stuck in the middle of a bunch of factories and train tracks. I walked up the train tracks just to get here. They played some funky jazz when I was there. Nice guys - talked to both the owner and a server, who kept trying to undercharge me. They sell everything on tap in growlers and 5-8 500ml bottles at any given time. Really just feels like drinking in a brewery with jazz music and couches.
