We visit a least once a month. A good downtown location with a good outdoor patio. Nice to visit anytime of the year especially when there are other events going on.

Such a fun experience. The selection of 4 beers at 4 oz each is always something I do with friends! Even as a girl who’s not a fan of beer, their alternate options and the fun of doing this with friends make this a 10/10 experience every time I go.

This is a fun brew pub, we're been a few times and have always enjoyed the food, drinks and atmosphere. The staff are terrific and always happy to give you a sip before you buy so you can determine your flavour of the day!!

Average beer but super delicious food. They make their own sausages, I got the cauliflower because I’m trying to only eat my own meat because I live on a cattle farm and I think that’s more sustainable, as the kids say, so I’m not trying to tell anyone what to do but I try to only eat vegetarian or even God for bid vegan when I go out. Often disappointing, but this place had the goods! That cauliflower sausage was really really a treat. My companions got the chicken and beef sausages because they’re not as virtuous as I, but when they got a load of my cauliflower sausage which I was happy to share with my wife and less happy to share with my traveling companions but did, man were they jelly! Love this place.

The beer at Merit is wonderful! The selection is larger than at most microbreweries. Great place to meet people for a drink!

Awesome brewery, not a huge selection of beer, but it was all really good. Would totally recommend and would go back to try the food. It smelled awesome.

I would strongly suggest them. Merit is a microbrewery that makes some bold and exceptional brews, but that's not what this review is really about. Everyone has Oopses or times we aren't our best, and in my delivery that came up. I reached out to the brewery to let them know that substandard bottles accidently got out the door. Even amid COVID-19 upheaval, they replaced the less-than-proper bottles with my choice of a mix of replacement and substitute selections. Both were exactly as I expected and very much enjoyed.

They don't just make good beer, they stand behind it. That integrity is (almost) better than getting high quality craft beer delivered to my doorstep!

Well done, Tej et al. You have MERITed this review!

Cheers.

we stopped in after a movie, not on a whim but as a destinstion. it was busy at first so we sent one in to procure seats while the other two parked. we ordered our food at the bar, and it came out quickly. tasty butter chicken, and smoky cheddar sausages, a huge salad and big honking bag of fries. the pickle jar was also tasty but a little undersized. the beers were cold and refreshing made right on site. the long tables and bench seating makes for easy casual mingling. will definately be back, even for just a quick glass.

Stopped in to Merit on a Sunday night. The "sausage-centric" menu was interesting and we were quite pleased with the food. The beers were limited to sours, farmhouse beers and a few classics. I had the IPA and the chai porter. Fair enough. The four-star rating is for the food primarily.

Fyi, you order at the bar and the food is then brought out to you. Several guests, including us, had to figure that out on our own. Also, while it was a quiet evening, the restaurant was noisy. Heaven knows what cacophony must occur when it's busy.

This is probably my favourite craft beer spot to visit in Hamilton. They have a great selection of craft beer on tap, and focus on tasty specialty sausages for food.
I highly recommend this place if you like craft beer and sausages.
