Bar Volo, Toronto

Nestled inside a leaf-covered building on the corner of Yonge and Dundonald is Toronto’s iconic Bar Volo beer bar, a must-visit location for any hophead…

With 26 rotating taps and 6 casks, Volo offers one of the finest selections of Canadian craft beers, and a few from foreign friends, that you will find anywhere in the city…

There is only one menu, the one you see above, that changes daily. You decide what you want, remember the corresponding letter to the left, and the bartenders pour your beer from the alphabetized taps…

I enjoyed three incredible beers from small Canadian breweries last night. First up was Konnichiwa Peaches, a peach hefeweizen from Oast House Brewers in Niagara…

Next up was the Gose from Les Trois Mousquetaires in Brossard, QC…

And I finished with a Corolis Effect berliner weisse from Sawdust City Brewing in Gravenhurst, Ontario, cropped to give you a little peak at Volo’s outside patio. on the left there…

Bar Volo also offers an extensive bottle list, an interesting collection of small batch whiskeys and domestic charcuterie and snacks.

A local institution that should no beer lover should miss!
