Didn't try their food but the brewery tour is great. Learn the characteristics of a good lager and how it's made. Large bar right in the brewery. The location is also a piece of history, located in the old railway yard in downtown Toronto with a small rail museum. The brewery itself also has vintage vehicles they use for local... More

Best home brew in Toronto. Brewed right outside skydome (Rogers Centre) so why do they sell Bud (US) and Keiths (Nova Scotia) beer on tap at Jays games?

An entertaining half hour tour of a local craft brewery. Staff are friendly and certainly enjoy their jobs. Plenty of included tastings along the way and great value deal on a take home pack when purchasing a tour ticket. If you like a beer - spend an hour here for sure!

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
