You. Must. Go. to Bellwoods if you're visiting. If you're a local, you must travel to BW on a frequent basis.

Love this place.
Patio and vibe is awesome.
Staff is excellent and knowledgeable. Our tender knew her stuff which is a big plus in my book.

Only downside was they were out of a couple drafts that they had listed that I wanted to try.
Ah well. Next time.

I visited on Monday night. Pretty busy considering the day of the week.
Wide range of clientele from young hipsters to professor types.

One of the great up and coming breweries in the city, the beer is fantastic.

It's on the smaller side, so if you are there on a Fri/Sat night either come early or be ready to wait. They will take your name/number down and call you when a spot opens up. The servers know their beer; and are passionate about what they brew. The prices are great for a Canadian bar.

The food is excellent but the kitchen is small so they have a limited number of food options.

Been a few times now, always been very impressed both with the quality of beer and guest taps. There beer is excellent and a fun outdoor patio setting that is always got a great buzzing atmosphere. Food is very high quality, with roasted duck hearts and other charcuterie and the sort, makes for a really nice experience. They just opened a retail store to the side and its a place I like to show visitors to toronto. Service is really good, prices are a bit much but what you are getting is really unique and two steps above most of the other beer places in the city.

As you can tell from the many positive reviews, Bellwoods seems to be a popular place to get some excellent beers. Having been able to see for myself, I agree: it is located in a quiet semi-residential neighborhood, a bit west of the downtown core. (I took the No. 63 Bus from the Ossington Street subway station - it passes right by.) The focal point is the busy patio that is set out from the open garage doors; there is a small bar to the left with a smattering of cramped tables taking up what space there is for the rather hipster crowd. Next door is the retail store. On draft were a wide array of their delicious brews; during my visit: I enjoyed: Wizard Wolf, a crisp sessional IPA, Paper Tiger, a dry-hopped lager, a nice and balanced stout, Witchshark, a massive Imperial IPA and wonderful barrel-aged session called "Farmageddon." Worth the trip, alone.

Great service and a unique food menu - I opted for their Chorizo verde, a spicy sausage entrée - makes for a must visit when in Toronto. I understand that they are expanding. No surprise here. I wish them well.
