Attended a business cocktail / reception here. Laid back feel, good beer and decent food. It is a fun unpretentious place. Not well set-up for speeches is the only down side. Did not do the tour so can't comment on that part of it.

However, they do it VERY well. We paid $10 to go on the tour and the tour guide grabbed bottles right off the bottling line and let us... More

You can sample the beer for nothing - lots of trinkets for sale as well as the beer. Good location and easy to access.

Great place to drink in the heart of the tourist destinations. If you are special you get to blow the steam whistle inside the brewery.

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.
