The Craft Brasserie and Grille, Liberty Village
When Teena and I walked by this building in our neighborhood a few months ago, we were excited. Signs on the window proclaimed that a craft beer bar with 120, yes 120 beer taps, was due to be opened! I could hardly wait. This week we found out that The Craft Brasserie and Grill was finally opened.
And yes, there are 120 craft beer on tap!
I love the set up of the room. There are windows open into the refrigerated keg room.
The pictures on the wall were brewery orientated.
Cayla, in the centre, is the manager and was great to talk to. Kat was our server and looked after us very well. She was always checking back to see if we were OK. To me, I like to ensure that I have an order in for a fresh glass of beer before I am done with the one I am working on. Kat made that happen.
Our first beers. I had a Black Oak Summer Saison and Teena had a Dirty Blonde from Old Flame Brewery in Port Perry, Ontario. Both were excellent!
The kitchen area is open at the back. You can look through the window, or through the open doorway.
The food was great. Teena had Galbi Smoke Wings which are Korean style wings. They were huge and she really enjoyed them. She said she would order them again.
I had a Forest Burger, which is a beef and pork burger with mushrooms, Fontina cheese, crispy onion and truffle aioli. I would have this again in a second!
How much did I like it?
They also have beer samplers called flights. I like how they write the name of the beers in chalk on the flight boards. Most places don't do this.
Our visit was great. It is a 10 minute walk from home and this will be a regular place for us to go.
