This has quickly become my go-to beer bar in Toronto.

The tap list is great both in terms of quantity and quality. There is always a good assortment of styles and breweries and often a few one-offs or harder to find beers from the local breweries. Not to mention, they almost always have Peche Mortel on tap!

The service is great as well. Bartenders are knowledgeable, talkative and friendly. As are the waiters.

The prices are reasonable and the food is pretty good as well.

Atmosphere is also nice. Not too upscale of a feel but also nice, clean and inviting.

This bar boasts an extensive tap list along one of Toronto's main entertainment thoroughfares. Items on the list were extraordinary, but I could not afford most and stuck to the taps. The service was solid, and I'd head here again the next time I'm in Toronto.

Great place to stop and enjoy some of Canada's best offerings. Gave it a visit during a quick stop in Toronto and was not disappointed. Service was great and the selection was better than expected. Beers can be ordered by the taste, in 4-beer flights or separately from flights. Food prices were the only negative, but that comes with the territory of being within the city (or so I assume).

Just a great bar. Laid back and relaxed atmosphere. An awesome selection of beers on tap that rotate on a regular basis, an extensive selection in bottles as well as two casks. Loved doing beer flights and trying a dozen beers in one sitting. The garlic donuts are fantastic. Look forward to my next trip to Toronto.

Stopped by late and the place was hopping (Sorry). A single room with a long bar and the usual seating accommodations here and about - or should I say aboot? Great selection of brews in a lively atmosphere makes for a pleasant part of any Toronto Beer Tour. I enjoyed the following local crafts: Indie Ale House Couch Surfer, Northwinds Route 26 and County Durham Black Katt.

The King Street West location is right on the streetcar, which you can hop on any time.

My main beer place in Toronto. If you want drinks this is the best place to do it in Toronto. Belgians, American stuff (Evil Twin, Jolly Pumpkin etc.) Laid back atmosphere with knowledgeable servers. Good mixed crowd. Good whiskey selection also.
Only thing preventing a higher rating is the food. It sucks.
If you want the best Toronto beer experience, go here. If you want to eat and drink try Beer Bistro or Bier Markt.
