This brewery is owned by 4 fired guys who made it big with a brewery after being fired from their jobs. It is located at the foot of the CN tower and next to Toronto Blue Jays ball park. A great place to go after a ball game or a tour of the tower. They charge for the tour but you a guide with a small group and can have a few beers on the house when you finish and you get a souvenir.

Almost missed out on this little gem. Arrived without prebooking the tour and it was sold out. The girls behind the desk were great and fitted us into a no show spot on the next tour. Exciting to learn about their Green initiatives and history while enjoying a cold one!!!

The beer here is great, but weekend tours are hard to book. We got there at 1pm and the next available tour was 4pm. I guess you can come in when it opens and reserve your spot. We did not know this prior to going. Overall a cool little spot.
