Mascot Brewery

Postby beerstodiscover » Sat Aug 01, 2015 10:05 am

I was surprised when a friend mentioned this place to me: a brewery in Toronto I hadn't heard of?! It turns out this is not really a brewery, but a rooftop patio that contract brews some house beers.

The location is great for a sunny day, after work, before/after a Jays game. They have a decent draft and bottle/can selection which leans toward the boring side of craft. I passed on the Mascot Pilsner (Mascot Hefeweizen was unavailable) and stuck with NB Paysan Saison which was just delicious.

The food menu is very limited. I had chicken wings and would not recommend them (small portion, no sauce offered).

Interestingly, as you walk up to the patio you pass through a small nightclub on the second floor, which is called Odd Thomas. They have a larger draft list (10+ taps) and is a bit of an anomaly in Toronto as a nightclub with a decent beer selection.

I saw the review on blogto earlier this year and was immediately turned off by the 5L keg deal. 130 bucks for just over 10 pints?

Yeah the keg "deal" is insulting. Didn't see anyone ordering that. Pints were probably 16 oz and $8, not outrageous considering the location.

the article should read "Currently, the place contracts brewing to Duggan's, who contracts his brewing to Cool."

The new toronto trend: opening up breweries that don't don't actually brew on site, but have the name "Brewery" in their name.

Looks like Siobhan is now the head brewer here. I ended up at Mascot a few weeks ago and sampled their first 2 craft taps (non-Duggans) and they were decent. They seem to have a half dozen more in the pipeline for their location, including an LCBO release and bottleshop.

And that's probably $8 + tax + tip. Just figure on $10-10.50 for a 4/5ths of a pint.

The $130, 5 litre 'keg' = 169 oz which is 10.57 x 16-oz servings, costing $12.30 per each. An added cost premium of over 50%.
That's maybe $15-16 or so after tax and tip for, again just 80% of a pint.
