If you are in the Niagara Falls area, this is worth a stop. Before it gets dark, as its in a depressed tough blue collar town, considered the worst spot in Canada. The bar is very nice, with seasonals that have a good reputation. I lucked into the IPA. The food and the beer is cheap, parking is very easy, and service is tremendous. Some of the dishes were made with beer. John the owner and brewmaster is committed . There were about 12 guest taps, a good selection of what he can get, as he knows his craft beer. There was good variety.
Stopped in here for a couple of beers and a bit to eat on the way from Niagara Falls to Toronto. Excellent atmosphere and a beautiful space though the stuffed monkeys above the bar need some dusting I’d imagine that late into the night with a band blaring I’d be miserable, but for an early lunch it was great. No samplers offered, but they were happy to pour tastes and half pints. Food was reasonably priced and tasty. Some nice seasonals and a seemingly out of place IPA (it was quite good). Handful of other locals on tap, which is always nice to see.
2008-07/19. I swear I rated this before. Earlyish on a Saturday night. Service is friendly, waitress suggests I try the McAuslan Apricot when I say I liked the Strawberry Blonde, which would have been helpful if I wasn’t being too polite to say that the Strawberry was just the least offensive so far. Luckily, the Old Time and IPA were much better than the rest of their house offerings. The IPA actually being rather good. Food was ho-hum at first but the club sandwich grew on me. Burgers have been decent in the past. Simple but tasty pub food. Generous portions. Atmosphere is pub meets sports bar and lodge, but it works for the most part. You’re here to tick off ratings, or because theres few other quality joints in town. IPA is the best thing worth having a full pint of imho. The highlights are nice, making the stop worthwhile. A short drive up the 406 from the only movie theater town if you are staying in the area.
To start, the neighboorhood in which this brewpub is located is rather dead, at least for a Saturday. The pub itself is quite nice, with the fermentation tanks located in the dinning area. The menu is pub styled. The Messy platter of hummus, onion confit, and curry mayonnaise was great, but the pizza was a greasy mess. The beer was rather light weight. Overall, was dissapointed with this place. Visited July 28.
Checked this quaint little pub out last week with my wife and inlaws. A smallish bar area located centrally to a large airy pub space. Bright and airy with a bit of brewerania on the walls as well. The brewery itself is visible at the back of the bar. Solid takes on a number of mostly UK styles of beer. The food is very good and very inexpensive as well. No complaints on my end.
Visited on June 26, 2015, in late afternoon. Located in the heart of downtown St. Cath, it’s a nice cozy old fashioned pub, the inside is fairly wide open. The service was pretty nice and and courtesy. The beers were ok, not awesome but not disgusting, there is a lot of selection from their own and invites. The food is typical but tasty pub fair. In all its good place to go when you want a break from all the good wine!
Visited on a Saturday night last July, it’s a big open wooden bar with a Western feel and tanks in the corner, overlooking the highway and parking lot from four or five stories up. Live lively music and friendly waitstaff greeted us throughout the evening. The 9 brews on tap are all fairly average, good to try. Food was good, a tasty club and caesar salad. Nice place.
Nice brewpub, I really liked the interior. 5 house brews we tried. A nice blond, a very good brown ale, an excellent ESB, and a good oatmeal stout. Good food right downtown, well worth a stop. If I lived in town I’d be a regular.
