The most relaxing Toronto brewpubs to visit this summer

Jul 13 2020, 11:50 am

Toronto’s brewpub patios are the ultimate summer retreat.

These sun-soaked spots offer a space to take in warm rays and house-made beers — if you ask us, there’s no better pairing.

Slap on some sunscreen and chug some water before heading to any of these brewery-meets-patio situations, so you can enjoy a few brews without worry.

Toronto’s giant shipping container market stackt opened last spring, and it brought Toronto a first-of-its-kind mobile brewery. The Belgian Moon spot has a sprawling patio, perfect for lounging on a hot summer’s day. Just a few steps away is a sangria patio too, so you can hop from one to the next depending on your craving.
