Toronto, ON M6J 2Z5
Bellwoods Brewery is a Toronto favourite for many reasons. First and foremost are the brewery's beers: Each one is brewed locally, given its own name and an accompanying poster with original artwork, which really shows how committed owners Mike Clark and Luke Pestl are to creating an unmatched bar and beer experience. For example, their sour dry hopped Jelly King beer became so popular, Bellwoods Brewery has released additional versions playing with different flavours. The brew pub that's attached to their original shop serves up gastropub eats inspired by the food of Canada, such as the crispy cod sandwich with the fish coming from Fogo Island. The space opens up into a large patio on Ossington, a quick hop, skip and a jump away from bustling Queen West, making this the perfect place for an after-work drink or a meal before going to hang out at the brewery's namesake park.
