Always a great selection of Canadian craft brews here. Seasonals and cask ales are a bonus. Food is good and reasonably priced. Had a delicious corned beef sandwich made with their Rye beer - a special for "Craft Beer Week". Their Rye beer itself is great, though I am sorry to say I haven’t seen their "Mild Brown Ale" on the menu for years. It must’ve been discontinued, which is a shame, because it was different and interesting.

After coming here for many years, I can't believe I have never rated it before. One of the the original classic craft beer bars. In a cozy basement, this place is functional and can be cozy. Beer selection has always been decent, but with the new kids on the block it has been slowly fading into the background. A good stop now but not the great stop it once was.

Visited 10th July 17, quick sneaky afternoon session, it’s near the Metro Convention centre, where I was working. The place was dead, just me at the bar. For some good IPAs in 3rd pint glasses, all were good, a varied hit and miss selection, if you don’t know what your looking for. Prices OK, bottled looked more pricy.

Large bar with large selection of local craft beer, mostly on tap and casks. No flights, but they pour 4 oz glasses, which allows to tick a few beers on a single visit. Overall nice and worth a visit.

Large basement restaurant/bar in the City. Decent tap selection of mostly Ontario stuff as well as their own "experimental" house brews. Average prices for the area. Food is quite tasty with generous portions and a focus on spices and seasoning. Pretty enjoyable place for a meal an a few beers.

A basement bar that is a good introduction to Ontario beers with many taps on hand. It has a tavern-like atmosphere and the room is split between bar and dining area. The service was indifferent and the bar staff were content on just chatting amongst themselves. I had a disappointing plate of food here. I mean, it was one of the most bland and horrible meals I’ve eaten out. For the beer, it’s worth a look.

Visited on a Wednesday afternoon. Quiet basement bar with a fireplace, couches, pool tables and carpet all around. Very welcoming. OK taplist of local beers, not the cream of the crop. Uninteresting bottle menu. Friendly service. Nothing to say about the food as we were only there for a quick pint. I would definitly go back, perfect spot for a quiet evening. A nice change from the jam-packed cramped places elsewhere in the city.

evilempire  (80) sheffield, England | December 4, 2014
two visits a few days apart netted me all 35 of the beers then on offer. excellent range of styles and breweries, though the province-ticker in me was slightly disappointed all 35 were Ontario brews so no provinces to tick off! Food was good and came in plentiful portions. Service was quick and friendly

A fairly dimly lit, sub-street level place divided into a more restaurant side and a more bar side with pool tables. Hard to rate the ambiance, as the three times I have visited it, it was very, very quiet, with only a handful of other patrons present. Service is very good and the staff quite knowledgeable about their beers. The selection of beers is very good, although not outstanding. You’d take a few trips to run out of new things to try though. Food was tasty, but not overly remarkable. Very good value as it wasn’t expensive at all, compared to similar establishments my wife and I have frequented. Overall, this is a place I worry about, as I like going when in Toronto, but it always looks like it isn’t getting the business it deserves.

Went on a Tuesday evening for dinner and some beer. You have to go downstairs into a basement environment that is split into 2 separate rooms. The food is nothing special and I would probably avoid eating here (more because there are much better places nearby but if you want generic decent pub food its fine); our server was friendly, knew a decent amount about their beer, and was happy to provide samples. Mostly Ontario beer and a decent selection but once again you can tick many of these elsewhere (Bar Hop would be my favourite new place fo rsure). That being said have to mention that I love the house blend that pokes fun at the mayor. Would say that if you are in the area this place is worth visiting for a couple ticks but unless there is a special event there are better places.

Re-rate, stopped in with a larger group, with plenty of space available to sit. Our server was down right rude and so disinterested in serving us. Probably the last time I ever come here. Really a shame.
