Just realized that I haven't posted a review for one of my new favourite spots in the city.

Bellwoods is one of my favourite spots in the city. The beer is fist class, with constantly rotating taps that include a wide variety of styles and some very interesting wine oak barrel aged offerings. The Witchshark IIPA is a must have for anyone visiting for the first time and it usually (always?) on tap.

The atmosphere is great and the service is friendly and knowledgeable. The servers are well educated in beer styles in general and especially so in their own offerings.

Prices are more than fair.

The food was decent the one time I ate there, but the menu isn't geared towards full meals; more so finger foods and lighter dinner fare. Still, the food is creative and what I had tasted good enough.

Tried samples of all of the Bellwood's beers and though there were a few that were quite good on the whole they were under attenuated, muddled, and dull. Some were not good at all. The bottle list was not bad and it is nice to have Westie 12 on the list. The great variety of beers they make seems to have prevented them thus far from taking the time to iterate and master any one beer in particular. Hopefully that will change in the future.

The place itself is insanely noisy, crowded and unpleasant.

I came here on a business trip and was pleasantly happy with my experience. Small bar and a few tables, food was limited, a lIttle pricey for the mains, but very well done and tasty. I only had snacks, but the oxtail the guy next to me ordered smelled fantastic. The beers are the star though. All the house brews were phenomenal, and there was an extensive bottle selection as well. The shop next door sells bottles to go. If I come back to Toronto I will definitely be back. Highly recommended, any my co-workers suck for not coming with me.

On holiday vacation in Toronto in late December, I convinced my Canadian family to bring me here. The brewery is located in the art & design district of Toronto so there are some cool vintage shops, artwork, and interesting establishments on the same street.

Bellwoods opens at 2 pm on Saturday and we arrived then because we had my 9 month old daughter in tow and we wanted to guarantee a table inside. They were very accommodating and even had a high chair for the baby. The inside of the brewery is small and there are not many tables in there although they have a small upstairs area and a small patio too. The first 2 hours they are open is the "witching hours" so draft beers are $1 off. We sampled several on draft at decent prices for Toronto (around $6 or $7 each) and tax included. For food the lunch menu is very limited but we had fries with sriracha mayo sauce for dipping which was awesome, a bowl of olives, meat tray with salami & prosciutto and bread with coffee butter. Some pretty good snacks for beer drinking and service was really friendly and nice.

The beers were all excellent: Grizzly Beer Brown Ale, Cat Lady IPA, Stay classy Session Ale, Toil and Trouble Dubbel, and our favorite was the Blitzen Saison. After we finished eating and beers, we stopped at the bottle shop on our way out where we picked up some Donkey Venom Brett Porter, Hellwoods RIS and others to go. 500 mL bottles are around $6-$8 each, which isn't cheap but not terrible either and totally worth it. Will definitely visit Bellwoods again and highly recommend for fellow BAs!
