Have you checked out the new Craft Brasserie and Grill yet?
If you’re a beer lover, you may want to.
Craft Brasserie is the newest beer-filled grill to hit Liberty Village – and by beer-filled, we’re referring to the 120 different varieties on tap.
Naturally, you can expect beer of all kinds, from crisp and clean, to fruity, bitter, and everything in between. Seriously, it will take you 15 minutes just to get though the neatly categorized beer list.
When it comes to rare finds in the Ontario beer department, you’ll come across options from Port Perry’s Old Flame Brewing Co., Kenora’s Boshkung Brewing Co., and Black Oak Brewing Company (just to name a very few).
Of course, its beer selection – the largest in the city – is what sets Craft Brasserie apart from places like William’s Landing, Brazenhead, and The Local Public Eatery (as much as we love those too). If the ample options overwhelm you, you can even order flights of beers ($10.50), which include four 5oz pours for a little variety and ‘Beer 101.’
If beer’s not your thing, there’s also a small selection of wine and cocktails.
Despite its casual vibe – complete with exposed brick and ductwork – the fare goes beyond your typical pub food. Chef Adrian Andaya – formerly from Milestones – has created a menu filled with comforting gourmet weekend grub like Popcorn Chicken, Galbi Smoked Wings, a Cider Glazed Porkchop, Beer Glazed Ribs, Short Rib Tacos, and an entire slider menu.
And yeah, it’s all as good as it sounds.
You can also mow down on an assortment of flatbreads (with five options to choose from), hand-pressed burgers (all of which can be substituted for vegetarian options), and a selection of snacks, most of which are $4-$5.
If breaking that diet with beer is where you draw the line, you’ll also find things like the Three-Bean Quinoa Salad, the Ahi Soba Salad, or the Warm Tomato Salad.
If you’re getting sick of the usual Liberty Village suspects when it comes to catching a game, Craft Brasserie is filled with big-screen TVs, and prime bar real estate is often occupied by fellow sports enthusiasts (and not the d-bag kind).
The best part? The kitchen stays open until 2am, when the beer stops flowing.
We don’t know about you, but we have (slightly ambitious) plans to try all 120 beers before September hits.
