Located on Ossington Avenue, the famous Toronto brewery stands out in a neighbourhood filled with restaurants. The award-winning brewery just celebrated its fourth anniversary, and is currently underway building a second brewery on Dupont Street.
The unique Toronto restaurant includes a welcoming patio, which is seen as being one of Toronto’s best. The patio is located right at the entrance of the building (so you can’t miss it). The outdoor seating creates a perfect setting for group interaction, so bring some friends. Holiday-like lights brighten up the patio during summer months.

On the interior, exposed fermenting tanks store brew, adding to an industrial, yet modern look. It also adds to the fact your beer is being made fresh, and you’re drinking the best of the best.
Although on the smaller side, seating only 40, the cozy restaurant is a must for visitors and Torontonians alike. White walls add to the ambiance, making for a quite beautiful setting. The trendy, candlelit bar is perfect to take your significant other when you’re in the mood to try something new.
Favourites such as the fried chicken and savoury muscles are flavourful, and there is always a carefully paired brew to compliment your meal. Like nothing you have tasted before, the extensive, yet impressive list of drinks will have you coming back for more.
Barrel aged beers give for a nice change to those who are unfamiliar to craft beer. Pale ales, hoppy IPAs and full-bodied stouts are all among the barrel-aged beers produced in this brewery.
Next door there is a shop, which sells bottles of their crafted beers. They also sell beer paraphernalia you might find on the walls in the bar, so you can turn your own kitchen in to a little brewery. On the odd occasion the do sell out of your favourite beer, don’t stress because they are constantly brewing.
