This is the type of place I like to visit when I travel. A beer bar focused on local and regional offerings. This way I get to try stuff I cannot get at home, hence the reason to travel.

The bar is located in downtown Toronto not too far from the Hockey Hall of Fame. Situated down a flight of stairs there are two bars in two rooms and one room with a bunch of tables and a roaring fireplace. To the back are pool tables. It is actually a a pretty nice set up and one I would think would work well in the cold Canadian winter. I would have rated it higher but my only gripe was the tv's behind the bar. Really some of the worst TV's I have ever seen with messed up colour ratios making it hard to watch the Blue Jays game. Really only a minor quibble.

Quality wise everything was very fresh. They had three cask offerings of which all were fresh. With the big focus on Ontario beers I got to try a few things I had never heard of and were quite good. What is nice is that they serve in two sizes so you can try a lot of beers out. Besides the cask offerings I would say there were maybe about 16-20 beers on tap and a great bottle selection as well. There were a wide variety of styles too without one main focus which was nice.

Bartenders were knowledgeable and friendly, as well as prompt with new beers.

The food was pretty good for a beer bar. I had a Quebec style pork and potato pie which was good, highlighted by accents of cinnamon. This came with a green salad which was appreciated as the pie was quite rich.

Prices were decent though to be honest I am from NYC and my views may be a bit different than others.

Recommended for fellow Toronto tourists as I am sure the locals already know about this place.
