Good location and nice selection of Euro/Belgian beers. A bit lacking in the local selections and you know the neighborhood isnít cheap, but it has lots of wood inside and is near the theater. Pretty good place.
Nice large patio up front with a dark comfy European style pub behind it. A hue European selection of beer. Likely nor muxh you havenít tried, but all on draft which is rare. A nice treat if you are in the mood. Service was good and of course everything in standard European glassware. Prices are a tad high but on par for what you would expect from a place like this.
Some serviceable european beers. European physical setup. Nothing
Interesting for me to dtink.

2014-12-26. Walked in before an afternoon movie on Boxing Day and it was pretty empty. Cozy, I like all the dark wood and leather decor but it has the potential to be VERY busy and loud on a weekend night. Servers were friendly and moderately knowledgable. Tap list has a lot of German beers on which is unusual for Toronto. I was surprised to find a bunch of European imports in the bottle list that I was not aware of being available in Toronto, but the waitress warned us that only about 50% of it is available at any given moment. Our first two choices were available though so that worked out. Itís not bad, especially if you are in the neighbourhood but serious beer hunters should be heading to Bar Hop around the corner.

One of the only Toronto ďbeerĒ bars that sucks even more than Sin & Redemption is its sister bar, The Town Crier. Much like S&R, most of the people who frequent this place arenít overly interested in good beer. They come here because the Crier serves some European beers and doesnít serve Molbatts, and so in their minds this place constitutes a ďgoodĒ beer bar. But be warned Ė nobody actually sits at the bar. Instead, the vast majority of patrons come in large groups and sit at tables, and if you try to sit at the bar you will very likely be treated as a bother by the servers. Amazingly, though, the smarmy crowd, bad service, and bizarre setup arenít the worst things about this place: that honour goes to the Crierís make-believe beer list, which advertises a dizzying array of beers that the bar doesnít have. For example, the last time I came here I ordered an Ommegang Abbey Ale in bottle and was served a Hennepin on tap. When I mentioned the mistake to the server, she said she didnít hear me correctly but never offered to rectify the situation. That was the last straw for me: I went down the street to Bar Hop and havenít been back to the Crier since. Donít waste your time here.

On side street of midtown. Tap list is very euro centric. Good selection of Belgian ales. Service was more than friendly. Food was good. Bottle selection was nice. Westy 12 was offered at 22$ plus tax. Underrated spot.
Update - went over last week. tried to get Westy, out..tried to get 6 more beers from list - out ....every single thing I asked they were out. They donít bother updating their website, or beer list. Beer tourists might be going there just to be disapointed. Do not bother going there.
Very very nice decor, very upscale looking, iíve been here before whe it was called The Fat Belgian. Pretty impressive list of taps. Some nice german hefes and lagers yiu wont fnd very often. Service was great and friendly and knowledgale. The food is decent, but nothjng to write home about. I would go back.
