Things are getting a bit better in Toronto for lovers of real, cask-conditioned beers.
The Yonge and Eglinton area is a great visit, with the Granite Brewery at Mount Pleasant and Eglinton, the Blue Meaney and the Bow and Arrow and the Duke of Kent on Yonge. Further south theres the great bar, Cest What?
Great beers too Granites EBS (dry hopped) and IPA, County Durhams ESB and XXX (IPA), a terrific entry from the Ottawa area, Scotch Irish Brewing (a superb Dogbolter and a very, very hoppy IPA). I keep looking around for F&Ms MacLeans Pale Ale on cask. There are rumours around about it, but Ive had trouble locating it. Any recommendations on where to find this. The only disappointment for me has been Wellingtons Arkell Bitter a lot of inconsistency.
Also, are there any other pubs around Toronto where a real ale lover can get a decent pint?
