Beer is of the masses in Toronto. No matter where you go, no matter where you turn, you will either run into a brewery or a craft beer hot spot. Heck, one can’t go far in this city without knowing at least one person who brews their own beer. We’re lucky this way — the beer possibilities are endless.
In case you didn’t know just how much beer is in this city, we’ve put together a beer drinkers’ guide to Toronto. Check it out below.
