Restaurants & bars

In 2002, when the Mill Street Brewery began crafting its wares in the historic Distillery District, they were the first Micro Brewery in East Toronto in over 100 years.  Due to their success, in 2006 they moved all large scale brewing to an alternate location, and the in the Distillery, the Mill Street Brew Pub opened its doors to the public, as a Brewery, Bar and Restaurant creating a distinctly Toronto experience.

Mill Street has pulled the curtains back on the brewing process, and the experience alone is worth the visit.  Over 12 handcrafted Brews and Ales are brewed right in front of you in the vats that surround the massive bar.  For their excellence in Brewing, Mill Street has been presented with too many honours to list here but some of the highlights are: Golden Tap Awards for Best Toronto Microbrewery (’04-’08) and Best Toronto Beer (for Tankhouse Ale: ’04-’07).  They have also been named Canadian Brewery of the Year at the Canadian Brewing Awards in 2007, 2008, and 2009.

And as if that wasn’t enough for these diviners of Hops and Barley, on the menu you’ll find features items like Beer Steamed Mussels, Proper Steak and Stilton Pie and Drunken Butter Chicken; some Hot Ones to go with your chosen Cold One!

To maintain this level of tradition and excellence across the board, the Mill Street Brew Pub has turned to RX Music to curate the playlists customized to fit the exclusive experience they offer.  Spend the afternoon with some chilled out Classic and Modern RnB, mixed in with some Modern Indie and Adult Contemporary music. Enjoy your Cocktail Hour with the Funkier Side of Pop and Rock, and in the evenings, take it upstairs to the Beer Hall for best that Modern Rock has to offer.

With another location in Ottawa, be sure to plan a visit to the Mill Street Brew Pub to take in what happens when you mix the best in Micro-Brewing with the ideal Playlist!
