“Good Food, Great Beer”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Had lunch on Aug 10, 2014. Got to try two of their beers. Enjoyed the Billy Bishop Brown Ale. The pizza and "wings" were very good. Overall a great meal.

“Great pub!”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

Probably the best friend chicken I've ever had! Lightly breaded, crispy but not greasy. Pizza also good. Enjoyed the basil beer and the IPA's. Great atmosphere. Will be back next time I'm in Barrie!

“Great Brewpub”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

This small place in Barrie's south end is now officially my favorite place. They do brew their own beer on site and have a great selection, they have wine and cocktails as well. But the food is truly amazing. Casual fair, pizza, burgers, sandwiches etc, but all done very well in WW2 inspired "mess hall" kind of environment. If you have to wait for a table and you might on a Friday or Saturday night, belly up to the expansive bar, order a beer and the cheese board and relax for the duration.

“Hop aficionado's rejoice! A craft brewery makes for a fun hang out”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Brewery with an aeronautical theme that serves a simple but varied menu. The food was generous and fresh with little twists on classics. (for example: kale mixed into the caesar salad, wings were actual drumsticks, fries came with 3(?) types of sauce options). Everything had a flight themed name but overall the subject of airplanes was not overdone or tacky.

Cool bowling-alley reclaimed-wood tables and quirky airplane memorabilia frame the view of the actual beer brewing tanks (?). Fridge with take home beer makes for fun gifts.

Staff was well versed in beer lingo, relaxed, pleasant and attentive.

Strange quiet plaza location on Yonge between busier intersections but lots of parking at least.
No particularly visible from the road...

I would go again. I think it would be great for lunch too (although I don't know their hours). Great LOCAL spot, good place to hang out or for a casual date, afterwork crowd. I didn't see any because we were there at an odd time but I think kids would be allowed in and enjoy the novelty of the airplane theme and brewing "machines". I plan on bringing out of town visitors as it's a local, fun, original spot with food!

It's very different from the old Robert Simpson now Flying Monkey Brewery downtown. This spot is rougher, craftier and quirkier and more fun in my opinion albeit a little out of the way.

I think they had coupons on one of those discount sites like groupon but since they seem relatively new it may just be a launch special but worth a look.

A little gem because of its uniqueness.
