#1764 Bar Hop from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 4.2 | Atmosphere 8 | Selection 8 | Value 10 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
Selection: The selection is quite good with a variety of OCB beers, many of which are available elsewhere in the city and a selection of 'international' standards. In total there were 36 taps, 2 casks, and 127 bottles.

Atmosphere: Dark, yet lively. A narrow space (similar to the old Smokeless Joe location) with seats for about 50 people, and a large blackboard advertising featured offerings.

Service: Service was quite good. Not outstanding, but nothing missing either.

Value: Excellent value. The beers I had were priced lower than what they could have cost elsewhere. The burger was very tasty, suited the beers quite well, and affordable. All told, a beef burger and two beers was less than $30.

#1763 The Town Crier Pub/Halfway Beer House from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 4.1 | Atmosphere 8 | Selection 8 | Value 9 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
I visited this place on March 24, 2011 for the first time with my friend Pauline. The decor is very upscale, certainly different than Smokeless Joe 2 doors down. There is a downstairs dining area/bar which seats about 50, as well as an upstairs area as well. Everything was very neat.

There are over 50 European beers on tap, primarily German, British, and a few Belgians. Heavy on the Hacker-Pschorr and La Trappe products, but also Wychwood, Fullers, Paulaner, Erdinger, Steigl, and a handful of Canadian taps.

The food was well priced, well portioned, and well prepared.

Dinner for two, including appetizer, desserts, and 3 beer, was less than $60.

#1762 Duggan's Brewery from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 4.2 | Atmosphere 8 | Selection 8 | Value 10 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
Selection/Quality: The brewpub brews about a dozen beers on site ranging in a variety of styles. Considering that most bars in Toronto serve a variety of pale lagers/blonde ales and Guinness, having a dozen styles to choose from is very good. The beers I tried were all above average in taste.

Atmosphere: The brewpub is located just off the main street in Toronto on a little used back road so there wasn't a lot of people when I was there. I had a nice windowside table.

Service: The service was very good. The server answered any questions courteously.

Value: The value was excellent. While I ordered 3 half-pints due to a later engagement, the cost of 3 full pints of craft beer and taxes would have run me LESS than $20.

#1761 3 Brewers, The (Les 3 Brasseurs) - Toronto from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.2 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 6 | Value 8 | Service 6 | Overall 6 |
The establishment has a small selection of in-house brewed beers (5 in total) and a decent pub menu. The crowd at the time of my visit was on the 20something side. The service was average, the beer was above average (and will necessitate other visits to try the rest of the beers), but the food was above average. All in all, I got a great tasting beer at an exzcellent price, and since the below average food is priced right, I would say the value is above average.

#1760 C'est What? from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3 | Atmosphere 7 | Selection 7 | Value 6 | Service 4 | Overall 6 |
Selection: Most of the beers on the current menu can be found at either Smokeless Joe's, Cafe Volo, or the Beer Bistro. About 50 beer total, and all Canadian

Atmosphere: It's a windowless basement pub in Toronto's St. Lawrence Market district, and has been done up decently. It's more a candidate for Restaurant makeover however than any awards.

Service: As a previous describes, the staff is quite snobbish, to the point of insulting. I asked for one particular beer and the response was 'We don't have it anymore....nobody bought should have been here two weeks ago". Made me wonder why they didn't update the menu that cost them a maximum of $0.05 to make.

Value: The beer value was excellent. $5.00 - 6.00 for a 550ml draught of a Canadian craft brew. The food value...........not so great. My burger was very good, but I can get a similar burger at other restaurants for less (and more meat).

I would recommend this place because the beer value is excellent and the beer selection beats a chain restaurant like Kelsey's/Casey's/Jack Astors

#1759 Elephant & Castle, Toronto, King St. from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 6 | Value 6 | Service 6 | Overall 6 |
Beer Selection
- there is a variety of British, Irish and Ontario beer on tap and a standard selection of Macrobrews in bottles.

- the restaurant is on the outskirts of Toronto's financial district and the restaurant was filled with suits looking to quench their thirst after a day's work.............similar to many other bars/restaurants in the area.

- the service was prompt with a couple of exceptions. My friend's margarita was salty, and our nachos came with jalapenos despite a request for no jalapenos.

- menu prices were again similar to a place like Kelsey's, Casey's, etc

There was nothing to keep me coming back. Of the 26 beer, I've tried all but 4, and the mistake on the nachos (after they brought them back, there was still one jalapeno on the plate).

#1758 LCBO, Toronto (First Canadian Place - Store 333) from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 2.7 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 3 | Value 6 | Service 6 | Overall 6 |
I'm not really sure why this store exists. Within 2 miles of this store, are several other larger stores (and a slightly larger store at Union Station).

The beer selection here is poor to non-existant (as is the Rum and Rye section as well). If you want wine, you'll fare better.

#1757 LCBO, Toronto (Union Station) from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 2.9 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 4 | Value 6 | Service 7 | Overall 6 |
This is a strategically located LCBO outlet in Toronto for people who want to pick up wine/liquor on their way to the train. While it is similar to all other liquor stores in that it sells beer, the beer section is very small and the varieties carried outside of Molson and Labatts is almost non-existant.

#1756 LCBO, Toronto (Queens Quay/Yonge - Store 217) from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.7 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 9 | Value 6 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
This is one of two liquor stores in Toronto I know of that has a LARGE beer selection, and a lot of it cold too. While most liquor stores have small to medium beer sections, this particular stores has over 250 brands from around the world. I'll definitely be returning.

#1755 McCabes Irish Pub from Guelph, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.2 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 7 | Value 7 | Service 6 | Overall 6 |
There were 17 beers on tap, and several others in bottles. The beer was served in the proper glassware, and at the proper temperature.

The food was alright, the menu has a little bit for everyone (traditional Irish pub fare, and North American roadhouse fare).
