The Beer Drinkers’ Guide to Toronto’s West End

The best breweries, pubs, and beer selections in the west end

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.

 
Breweries

Great Lakes Brewery

Location: 30 Queen Elizabeth Blvd

A little further out from downtown, but defiantly worth the commute. Great Lakes Brewery was 2016’s Ontario Brewery of the Year and there’s a reason for it.
