Is it any wonder this hockey town has seen a huge profusion of craft breweries lately?

It looks like the big brands remain popular but now local microbreweries are adding even more suds to the landscape.

Mill Street Brewery in the Distillery District launches a summer series. For a limited time you can quaff back two new ales. The Mill Street Curious Parrot is a blonde ale inspired by the golden ales of Hawaii and the Don Valley Bench Estates Ale makes you think of a chardonnay-like beer made of course with no white grapes but boy is the herbal flavour refreshing and smooth. 

The Indie Alehouse in the Junction has become a huge hit in this hood that for years was plagued as a dry spot in Toronto, a weird law dating back to our temperance days; i.e. no alcohol served on the premises but that thankfully has changed only recently.

Bellwoods Brewery in Toronto’s newest hip hood on Ossington Avenue is a trendy brewpub catering to the city’s growing Brewster-philes. Expect a surprisingly long beer menu and be ready for some of the best ale in the city.  Try fun names like Wizard Wolf and Grizzly Beer.
