Anyone tried this Toronto brewery?!?

I wouldn't mind trying their Peach and Apricot Berliner.

These guys are solid, certainly worth checking out. The west coast pilsner is a standout for me, reminds me of Jacks Abby Hoponius Union/jabby bray hybrid.

Good to hear. So far, all I have seen from these guys is people checking in their beer in Untappd and the ratings don't seem all that great. If I am in the 'hood, I will stop by and give them a try.

Reviews are definitely polarizing. I loved the West Coast Pilsner, but everything else has been average at best. Big tip though, stay away from Bloor Lite, it's atrocious.

I actually didn't mind it. A hoppy lager, better than the name would suggest. Also not a lite beer.

For those that don't want to head up to Burdock, the West Coast Pilsner is on at Bar Hop 2.

Yeah, give 'em a go. Beers range from good to quite good, and the food there is outstanding.

Kudos to Burdock for having an easy to use web-site that tracks the current beer inventory, down to the bottle.

More of this please local brewers!

The Fresh Hop Pale Ale is enjoyable.

From Burdock's Instagram yesterday...

"Tonight we are releasing our new IPA! Like a tropical fruit bomb coming in at a hefty 7.7%. Packed with mosaic, cascade and simcoe hops. It's on tap tonight and in the bottle shop by Saturday!"

I don't they've made an IPA yet, but this one sounds like it has potential.

Agreed. However, nothing incredible either. I would just as well drink GLB Canuck then have to go out of my way to get this again.

Looking forward to trying other beers they put out though. I think this brewery has some nice potential.
