This is their "brewhouse" located on the tourist-choked Queens Quay; it is situated in a former warehouse, it's original beams and brickwork still being retained as the décor. It is a massive place with many loud and boisterous patrons spread all over and out the door and onto the large patios. The bar is enormous and takes up the main room. Amsterdam offers nine of their beers on tap, with a good variety of styles offered for the beer expert or the beer novice. Many of the beers are lighter so as to not frighten the tourists, I suppose. That said, the beers were very good and fresh - particularly the Cruiser All Day IPA and their Fracture Imperial IPA, the latter being very delectable. I did enjoy the smoke cheddar burger.

This venue is comparatively pricier than other places in town, but the real estate is prime. If you do not wish to deal with the hustle and the bustle, Amsterdam beers are readily available about - or aboot - town. I do recommend their Boneshaker IPA.

This place is absolutely HUGE. Very nice ambiance, two levels, upscale. I assume in the summer time this would be even better with the patio open right on the water. Will make sure to come back when the weather warms up.

The service was not the best. Out waitress was knowledgeable about the beer on the menu but service was extremely slow, and the place was not all that busy. In addition to that, I am fairly certain that I was served the wrong beer, which there is no excuse for.

They had all of the standard lineup plus 1 seasonal brew and 2 adventure series brews. Would have like to have seen a couple more interesting one-offs/pub exclusives.

Food was good. Had a couple of apps that were both tasty. Overall, mixed feelings but would go back.

The brewhouse is up and serving. . I had one tap and 2 of the special bottle series, both wild ales. 2 bars,an upstairs. 3 patios facing great scenery. Its huge, its the biggest brew structure to hit Toronto and its a must visit. If not for all the construction, it would be even more slammed. Ian has great plans here, lots of tanks so he will be brewing.. beer store opening soon. Just go.
