Bar Hop King vs. Bar Hop Brewco...

Postby BeerIsGood » Mon Aug 06, 2018 3:07 pm

OK GTA beer enthusiasts. I’m in The Big Smoke for one day in a couple of weeks. Lots to do, choices to make. Same, same with these two or a clear reason to pick one? Shoot. Please and thanks.

King is smaller, brewco is newer, so a little nicer, much larger and has a rooftop patio. The menus are different, but not so different that it really matters. They're also walking distance apart, so why not try both?

Do both. Do afternoon rooftop patio at BrewCo and later on King St. Food and beer menus are different.

On the whole, I've had better drinking and dining experiences at the King Street location, and enjoy the atmosphere a bit more as well. The only drawback is that it can be difficult to get a seat at the bar, since the place is always packed. My preference is King, but you'll have an easier time finding a seat at the Peter Street location, and like Craig said you could always just hit both (they're a 5 minute walk apart).

I like the bar or front at King the best, other than the patio which is a whole different thing, but I'd take pretty much anywhere on Peter over the seats in the back at King. It's too loud back there.

But it's really all good. You can't go wrong.
