Shacklands Brewing Co.
One of our newest breweries, Shacklands is nestled into the northern tip of Toronto’s fabulous Junction area. This place is literally overflowing with kitsch. Imagine walking into an eclectic friends basement or cottage, smile beaming on their face as they show you all their carefully selected items of interest. Place a brewery in the middle of that picture and you’ll have a good idea of what it’s like to visit this incredible place.
This review is based on their opening weekend, and let me tell you, they’ve hit the ground running! Dave, the relaxed owner/operator of this establishment, extends his friendliness to all and completes the overall feeling of pleasant tranquility.
The beers themselves are brewed in the Belgian style, and are a solid representation of this unique process. We’ll be going back often to Shacklands this year, and as they evolve, this review will as well.
