Cheap Pints around Yonge & Wellesley

Hey all -- I'm looking for suggestions of where to get cheap after work drinks around Yonge and Wellesley? Any suggestions?

  1. Substitute "cheap" for "good" and you've got Bar Volo near there which has an awesome selection, including cask-conditioned real ale.

      Or you can hit Volo on Monday for $5 Pint Night, and get both "cheap" AND "good".

        $5 a pint isn't cheap. Not all beers on tap are available for the $5 price and the regular beer prices in Volo are nowhere near cheap. In fact, they're one of the more expensive places in town if you do the calculation.

        However, I do go to Volo because they bring in stuff we can't get anywhere else. For that, I really like them.

          Well, "cheap" is relative.

          If people are happy drinking Blue or Bud, then sure, they'll be able to find it for less than $5 a pint a lot of places. But for good quality beer, $5 is a good deal for downtown Toronto.

          And yes, I'm aware that not all of the beers are included in the $5 deal. But enough of them are to make it worth a visit.

    2. I'm a fan of the Duke of Gloucester, on Yonge

      1. The Artful Dodger (10 Isabella St, about 3 streets N of Wellsley, behind the Panasonic Theatre)

        Great patios, good taps, and above-average pub grub.

        1. I haven't been in a while, so perhaps things have changed, but Local 4 has $4 pints on Monday nights. Small but decent selection of local microbrews.
