Mill Street Beer Hall (@MillStBrewPubTO) is just around the corner from the original Brew Pub in the Distillery District with more than 500 seats which included a very big patio space.
Definitely love the more updated and modern space compare to the original Brew Pub which I have always thought outdated. Love all the copper beer lines around the ceiling and long wooden tables which further accentuate the industrial feel of the space.
Love the open kitchen but with all the heating light by the counter, it was incredible hot if seated near that area and with the big doors opening the patio means not much AC.
With the long tables and huge space, it's perfect for larger party.
We only tried 2 things from the menu since we ate before meeting up with some friends, so I am hoping to go back soon and do a 2nd post.
Mill Street Sampler
~ Hell Bock, Paradise IPA, Distillery Ale, Frambozen
Both of us are already very familiar with their regular brew, so we decided to try some of their special brew from
And of course we had to try the bierschapps which is a rare find outside of Germany and the only place available in Toronto. I have to say I'm not a big fan of this distilled spirit.
Pork Board $29
~ hose made bratwurst, smoked pork belly, apple glazed Frenched pork shank, turnip choucroute, horseradish mustard, candied apples, pretzel twit
The prok belly was melt in your mouth good and the sausage was perfect with the mustard, even the pretzel was so good cover with butter. The only thing we didn't like was the pork shank which was very dry and overcooked.
We share another pint of Distillery Ale and a half pint of the Helles Bock which was my favorite from the flight we tried. Love the sweet malty flavor with hint of currants w/ a tiny bit of hop-y bitterness.
Mini Beer Doughnuts
I wouldn't say it was wow but it was made fresh, served hot and was very light... def did it's job a satisfying my hot dessert cravings.
There's no doubt they have great beer but the food was great too.
Can't wait to go back and try more of their food items.
