This was seriously the best money that we spent in Toronto over the last couple of days. We were in town to see a couple of Jays games and had some time to kill so we booked a tour. Very interesting learning about how company started and great to see an independent brewery flourish in a time of big corporations... More

Noah was fantastic! The tour was easy to book (fills up quickly so plan ahead!) and the location is very central, surrounded by the CN tower, aquarium and nearby Union Station. The tour started promptly. We were given headphones so that we could hear the guide (Noah) amongst the noise of the bar/brewery. This was great because we could walk... More

Not being a "real" beer lover I didn't know what to expect. But my wife and I loved it. Tour is fairly short but u do get some free samples. I don't know if I learned a ton about the beer making process, but the history of steam whistle is very cool. I also cant wait to point out some... More

Really enthusiastic staff and the tour was really informative, plus we got to drink a bottle of beer as we walked around. I... More

This is a nice little brewery tour. They make one lager beer and they are quite proud of it - with reason. During the tour you'll get to taste the freshest beer you'll probably ever will. And it's good! The tour itself is typically for a brewery. You'll hear the story behind the brewery, the brewing process and how things... More

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.
