A good place for a pint if you are in the west end of the city. Good selection of taps that often includes an interesting offering and/or cask from Great Lakes, among others.

The atmosphere isn't the best - very much has a "dive bar" feel to it - but the service is good enough and friendly.

The food leaves a lot to be desired. If you are hungry - go elsewhere.

Visited after Cask Days 2011. Inside sports a comfortable, relaxed, and dimly lit ambience with a couple games on the flatscreens. Mixed crowd minds their own. I ordered the lamb special and a pint of Great Lakes Canucklehead on cask, both of which were tasty and well-priced. Service was efficient as everything arrived in reasonable time. The beer selection is very good, though some of the taps (pale lagers, cream ales, etc) are a little pedestrian. Still, they get several rare GLB brews. Overall, Bryden’s is one of the better options in the west end, and it’s particularly worthwhile if you’re staying at the airport (15 minutes away). A cool spot that I’ll happily return to when I’m off the beaten path.

Cosy, with a great selection of Ontario micros, mixed with a few good Europeans.
Steps from the Jane subway stop. Lots of parking nearby; metered or free.

Quick and easy drive for West End beer lovers.
( I try to get there once a week, from Mississauga )
They have 16 - 20 taps, including 5 dedicated to a rotating selection,
which include a cask ale and a stout.
Beer from Great Lakes is well represented.
There is a fridge with some imports and macros.
Friendly and efficient staff.
One of my favourites in the GTA.

Surprised I am the first to review this place. West end, Bloor and Jane. Parking on street meters. Smallish place, they make good use of the space. Also a small patio. Its new and the best is they always try to have at least one cask on, tonight Muskoka harvest, not a bad choice. At least fourtenn taps on, the majority being craft choices including a feature craft. Too small to be a star place, but enough heart to be a rising star. Several bottles, Sleemans and the like in a cooler, and improvements can start there. Pints were as pricey as downtown. The scene was young and noisy, loud without earsplitting music.
