We went here on the recommendation of locals following a CFL game. It did not disappoint. Great selection of craft beer, small but mighty after hours menu, two patios (front and back of the building) and great ambience. Would go back in a heartbeat!!!

The service was fast, friendly. The drinks were unique and a good price, I highly recommend the Shipwreck, The Crab Poutine was perfect. We split it a good size portion.
