“2021-10-24. Location is in a pretty industrial area but the patio looked decent. Late Friday afternoon the patio was very busy. There is a big fairly touristy feeling store. There was a giant sign outside listing the beers available which was handy during a pandemic. Not sure if that's always there or something new. Listening to the sales guy explain their beer line up to an older couple was entertaining. Several “brewery only” releases available. We would have stayed if it was less busy but it was only getting busier as we left with some to go beers. Short drive to several waterfalls around Bracebridge. Beers vary from not great to pretty good depending on your tastes. “

“2021-10-24. Small space overall, very small patio outside was quite busy on a Friday afternoon, as was the small indoor space. 7 beers and a seltzer on tap today. More available in cans to go. The local Lions Club was doing an Octoberfest BBQ outside which seemed fun but we had already eaten. Ours was a quick visit to grab cans to go as it was busier than our pandemic comfort zone. Worth a visit if in the area, but we have not yet rated most of the cans we got - so that opinion may yet go up or down :) “

“Visited during a trip in Ontario, when they were installing new place. We bought some beers and we went out with a glass for free. Cool memories in their office with the relocation boxes/cartons.“

“Yes the brewery is now located in an industrial area, but if it means that they can now boost production to increase the distribution are I will take it. The store front itself was well stocked with all of the current production and even a few that I epected not to find from the winter and spring. Very friendly staff and 6 taps to sample from. It is a little outside town but worth a stop if you are coming from Hwy 11.“

“What a great find while on vacation. It is a little difficult to find but look for the sign for Chancery Lane offthe main street. Wereally enjoyed the atmosphere and were able to enjoy some sun on the small patio. A small but good selection of rotating taps supporting regional craft breweries. Very friendly service and a good menu to compliment the beer. Make the effort to find it!“

“They’ve moved. Bye bye cute cottage storefront; hello industrial office nightmare. Have you ever been to a construction company’s office? That’s the atmosphere here. Terrible & unwelcoming. I know, I know : now they can increase their output. But don’t waste your time visiting this 1970’s industrial park nightmare.“

“Stopped in here on the way to a wedding for a snack. Although this is a small place the atmosphere is very homey, the food is great, and they have a very good selection of local and other Ontario (some Quebec) brews. You won’t get anything crazy on tap but its friends, and the local selection is A+ - worth visiting.“

“Pretty small place, nice patio, some what hard to find unless your looking for this one, which we were. Its up an alley way off the main st there. near the top of a little hill. The place had 10 taps running. With lots of bottles in the cooler. Not too many beers here I hadnt tried but no doubt the only place to get this kind of selection for quite a distance.“

“Found this place via a long and complicated story. I’ll skip all that. This place was fantastic. Old historic building, used to house a law firm. The prices were very reasonable for the quality. Service was fast and super friendly. Had the Bison burger, as well as the Lamb burger. Both were excellent but their gormet beer bread really stole the show for me every time I stopped in. Tap line up is incredible considering I didn’t know such a place existed in cottage country. Owner is amazing, generous, and plays live music with his co-owner almost every night. Total gem, definitely a must if you are in the Muskoka’s.“

“Great little place hidden up an alley off the main strip in Bracebridge. About a 5 iron from the Muskoka Brewery. (Which they were also featuring as "Brewery of the Month.) Small inside, with only 6 ot 7 tables, but there is a nice bar, and it’s quite bright, so it doesn’t "feel" that small. They have kinda a C’Est What? thing going on, with only Ontario micros on tap or in bottles. The server was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable, but she also seemed to be the only person working, and was running to stand still. Food selection wasn’t huge, but everyone at the table was satisfied, if not overwhelmed, with their meal. The sweet potato fries were excellent. The place is definitely a nice addition to cottage country.“
