Pubcrawl Help

Looking for a microbrewery or classic pub to have 50 guests for only an hour this friday. Amsterdam has relocated, and no longer has a bar. Anyone know of anything else similar? Looking in the downtown area, and a patio is a big bonus.

    What about the Granite Brewery at Mt. Pleasant and Eglinton? They have two patios, one in front and one in a back courtyard.

    Also there is C'est What which is more downtown at Church and Front. Though they're not really a brew pub anymore they do have a ton of unusual draughts. No patio, though.

    If you're aiming to kick off a pub crawl, both of these are surrounded by many other bars and pubs within walking distance.

      Definitely Granite. It's a great place, and the food is pretty good too.

      Caffé Volo is another option too. Though they don't brew anything in-house, they have a great selection of local microbrews on tap, including some cask-conditioned options. I think the food is better at Volo.

        The Flatiron and Firkin at Wellington/Front and Church has a large patio - at least it did when I was there a few years ago.

          I would suggest not going to C'est What, as a friend told me a service horror story which began with pulling 2 tables together... so I think accomodating a party of 50 would be the first problem to arise.

            Thank you for all of your help. After further research, we've decided to kick off the night at Fionn Mccolls at King and Spadina.
