Very good food. Very good beer. The Simcoe Double IPA, outstanding. Not quit Maharaja, but well on the road there. Come here! The afternoon delight is a relatively mild IPA, but very nice. The American Joe Schwarzbier is really good. A lager yeast, but not at all thin.

My second time here and the first time I review this place. About the only thing I remember from the Harvest is how delicious their DIPA is! Lucky me they had it on tap during my second visit...
It is a cool-looking place, with tanks right by entrance and brick and wood aplenty. A zig-zagging copper bar and a cozy, quiet ambience on a lazy Sunday night.
Unfortunately there was a tapping going on for a local theater group and most of the joint was taken. This also affected service.
I was tempted by the barrel-aged beers but was one week too early for the release. Eight house beers on tap, including the Cluster DIPA (had, damn good!) and The Dark Side of the Moon (Black IPA, a tad too hoppy perhaps but good)
Of the food menu, we had a correct miso soup and a rather nice and filling veggie chili.
Service was crappy from a kind-of clueless bartender, but it is true he was busy with the filming crew.
I would come back, but not on purpose and without great expectations.
