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.

Went here last night...
Walking up, really cool looking place, good outside seating area. During busy time they have you wait in line just to get to the host, who is also working as a server, so we waited ten minutes until we even knew what the deal was. You're also not allowed to even go to the bar as you wait. Once we got approached the hostess was really nice and got us seated at the bar within five minutes.
Once at the bar, really cool inside area, also has an upstairs and is all in viewing area of the brewery which looks to be a 10bbl system. On tap is mostly house beers, I had a the Witch IPA and the Brett american Pale Ale, both good. Buddy had a the Grizzly Brown and Stout, both good. We ordered the meat plate which was great. Ordered the buffalo chicken sausage, which was a little small but very good and spicy. After those two plates we ordered the flat iron steak, which took over 25 minutes to cook and we eventually cancelled it. That's when the waitress started giving us some lip.
Overall, I'd go back and try again on a less busy night. Place stays open till midnight every day.
SIDE NOTE: Good bottle selection, a lot of belgians, some sours, some saisons. Bottle Shop is cool too.

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.
