Checked this out tonight. A bit bland looking on the inside, but a very nice craft selection, including a couple you don't see much of: St. Ambroise Pumpkin and Weihenstephan Dunkel. Thye have a 4 x 5oz craft sampler for $6.95, which I think is a great idea. I had very good service at the bar. The s...

Brass Taps ( Danforth )

Popped in here on Sunday, after seeing their name for Toronto Beer Week.
It's on the south side, at Logan.

Mad Tom, Spearhead, Tankhouse, Steamwhistle, Beau's, & more on tap.

Great pizza

Friendly service and crowd.

Pricing

I am wondering about the price people are paying for this beer. The tulip glass provides a 14 oz serving, I am told. I had it at Bryden's in the tulip glass and am sure the price was somewhere around $7, tax incl. I had it last night at West 50, same glass, and it was $8.64 + taxes. I nearly hit the...

I went to the store last week ( 6 weeks from payment ) and spoke to the CSR...

There are a fair number of quality Ontario craft brews, as well as a number of European brews. They do have various seasonals. Black Oak's Chocolate Cherry Stout is on right now and the bartender said they were expecting a few more. Here is a link to their menu. It is not completely up-to-date, as S...

For all West End Hopheads

Smashbomb is on regular rotation here, as is Sgt Major's.
Hoptical Illusion, too.

I like to go between 4:30 & 6:30, when appetizers are half price.
It's a nice crowd at that time, too.

I was at the Opening Night game, in the 500 Level. The beer selection is dreadful, don't get me wrong, but I was a bit shocked at what wasn't for sale. On draft; Bud & Bud Light In Tall Cans; Bud, Bud Light, Bud Light w Lime, Keiths, & Stella Artois Perhaps the selection is larger on the low...

Patrick's Pick

I bought a bottle this week. My receipt said Elora ESB.

It tasted OK, but I won't be rushing back for more, not with the new releases waiting.

Too bad about Galeville Grocery. It's actually in Liverpool, a nice little town, just west of Syracuse. I visit Liverpool / Syracuse each year and if you're looking for good beer buys, there are a couple of alternatives: 1) Nichol's Grocery, right in the village of Liverpool, on 1st St, has a good s...
