Was recommended to me by quite a few people travelling around the Toronto area so I decided to walk over and check it out.
They have a lot of taps, that's for sure...They have a decent bottle selection (including overpriced Westy 12)...
But many of their selections are beers that are fairly accessible in the craft beer scene. Numerous beers from Wehen, Hacker, etc etc. It's a cool place, nice vibe i that English Pub style, but I wouldn't really say this is a craft beer destination. It's a nice neighborhood bar, but there are better places to visit in the city if you want to experience Ontario and all the great beer that is popping up.

One of three bars owned by the same group, the cornerstone bar being Sin and Redemption next door. Not so impressed with the place, a little bit of a Cockney bar image, with t-shirted staff instead of more elegant dress of S&R, many similar taps to next door , a few more macros. Still not a focus on Canadian to Sin and Redemption. As regards local craft, a couple of taps that’s all. Longer bar area than Sin and Redmption. Narrow passages to get by tables and Sewer backup smell this night and yet the windows all open.
