BarVolo stacks up with the best. It is honestly one of the best beer bars I have ever been to.
They have quite a few rotating taps, I'd say about 35 or so, wich 6 or 7 beer engines. Fantastic! Love me a good cask ale now and then. The taplist consists of a mixture of Ontario beers and a few from other Canadian provinces. Just a really nice, well rounded selection. A little short on Stouts, which was surprising seeing how it's November, and beginning to be a bit chilly. They had quite a few APA's and IPA's, which I see isn't just an American thing, even the Canadian's have bought into the hop rage...it's all good. I didn't have any Pale's at all.
Their bottle selection is where it's at. Freaking amazing bottle selection. Things that you will not find anywhere else, aside from some of the really great beer bars around the world.
I didn't try any of the food on my first visit, but I know I will be back and want to give the food a shot, sounds and looks tasty. The service was fine. The bartenders were knowledgeable and friendly...I like the fact that they don't take your order at the table. Don't be a lazy D-Bag and get off your ass to order a freaking drink and a snack, bro! It keeps the staff to a minimal and that means taking up less space and less overheard for this bar.
Will recommend to people I want to visit...all others stay away.
