Bellwoods Brewery, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Bellwoods hasn't been open long, but it has already made an impression on the Toronto craft beer + food scene.
Bellwoods and the Group of Seven Chefs put on a brilliant seafood feast that I was lucky enough to be in attendance for; it was the first time I tried raw halibut, geoduck, and a host of other funky sea dwellers. The five-course tasting menu resulted in one of the best meals I've ever had - and that's not even touching on the beers.
I still can't decide which of their funky brews I like best. It could be the barnyard brilliance of their Farmhouse Saison, the cheek-puckering sour punch of the Muggleweisse, or the just-like-licking-a-pine-tree goodness of the Witchark IPA. I tried every beer on the menu, and a few that weren't, and loved every one of them. I'm amazed I can remember any of it.
Located in the heart of the Land of Os, Bellwoods, with it's fantastic streetside patio, is a place I'm going to visit more often.
