Toronto's hidden beer garden is now open for the summer

Toronto's ultra-cool hidden beer garden is now open for the season as of this week.

There's an old proverb that says "summer hasn't truly begun until the beer gardens have opened." Ok, maybe I made that up, but that doesn't make it any less true, and one of the city's coolest has just opened for the summer.

As of Thursday, May 2, you're now able to sneak down the side lane at C'est What, a Front Street staple brewpub and wind up in their charming beer garden, which takes up residence in the parking lot for the season.
