Here are the best microbreweries in Toronto.
The upstart microbrewery on Ossington earned a reputation for its exceptional beers. Find an ever-changing lineup of barrel-aged beers, pale ales, bright and hoppy IPAs, full-bodied stouts, and Belgian styles like saisons and tripels at the brewpub and in bottles at the adjacent retail store.
Since 1986, this brewer has been celebrated for its selection of fine craft ales and lagers. While its most popular brews are available at the LCBO and Beer Store, you'll find innovative and interesting beers to try out at its production facility in Leaside Village as well as at its waterfront brewpub.
The oldest indie brewer in the city has been at it for almost 30 years and doesn't show any signs of slowing down. The company prides itself on appealing to eclectic tastes, offering everything from unique seasonal ales and premium lagers to its experimental Tank Ten beers and limited Project X releases.
The Parkdale brewpub from award-winning brewmaster Michael Duggan crafts small batches of specialty and seasonal beers from ingredients sourced entirely from Ontario. The house favourite is the No. 9 IPA, though you should visit if you want to try the selection of specialty beers available exclusively in the pub and bottle shop on site.
Located inside a former auto shop at Dundas and Roncesvalles, this large, open-concept brewery, taproom and patio offers 20 beers on tap, including 15 original brews and a handful showcasing fellow craft brewers. Classic Belgian-style ales are the focus, but expect a repertoire of inventive, experimental craft beer styles too.
This East York brewery doesn't rely on unorthodox ingredients, but rather takes pride in making deliciously drinkable and well balanced beers. The namesake Muddy York Porter is a house favourite, featuring dark chocolate and roasted marshmallow notes with a hint of wood smoke.
