Bellwoods Brewery

Whether you’re looking for hoppy beers, sour beers, fruity IPA’s, serious stouts or malty, farmhouse or wild pale ales, Bellwoods Brewery has it all. Since 2012, owners Mike Clark and Luke Pestl have consistently evolved their offerings, all of which can be enjoyed in an industrial setting or purchased from their bottle shop. Tasty bar snacks or larger plates are optional but recommended!

Burdock Brewery

Part microbrewery, part bistro and part music hall, Burdock Brewery celebrates the best of Toronto’s local beer, local produce and local talent. Soundproof walls mean the rotating range of house-brewed pale ales, lagers, saisons, pilsners or hybrid wine-beers can be enjoyed without interruption. Current brews are available from their bottle shop.

Blood Brothers Brewing

It truly is a family affair at Blood Brothers Brewing as siblings Brayden and Dustin are the passionate pair behind the unique assortment of crafts beers on tap and in the bottle. Also serving hot and cold bar snacks, the brothers invite you to “join the family” by enjoying a pint on the patio, within the bright and welcoming indoor space or purchase from the bottle shop.

Godspeed Brewery

Godspeed Brewery’s one-hundred-seater indoor space plus patio is the place to go to enjoy Japenese inspired craft beer. Ingredients like green tea and yuzu perfectly complement the izakaya-style comfort food coming from the open kitchen. Everything is quirkily labelled in both Kanji and English throughout the brewpub and bottle shop!
