The Three Brewers opened several months ago near Dundas Square and we didn't have a chance to check it out until this weekend. Our friends Denis and Abby has recommended it as a good place originating from Quebec. Actually, Denis had referred to it in French, les 3 brasseurs, and I "heard" 3 brothers....as a result, for months, I have been telling people to go try "Three Brothers."
Regardless, we went with friends visiting from the West this weekend, hoping to catch-up over some good food and watch tennis. The good part is that the food was excellent and the place is much bigger than it looks (4 floors) so we had no trouble getting a table. The bad part is that they were unable to change selected tv's to tennis - not sure why watching a random screen saver was better than the US open at a PUB....but whatever.
Tony had a tasting of 4 beers, which seemed to be pretty popular. I had the blonde ale, which was perfect for a hot summer day. Food, as I mentioned, was delicious. I had the house special, a beer braised pork shank, served with sauerkraut (surprisingly yummy!) and a large baked potato...more than enough food for me and was seriously satisfying. Tony had a flam, think pizza on a super thin crust - almost pita like. We were also happy the poutine had good cheese curds. We're happy to have tried this great casual and inexpensive dining spot so close to home - the menu has a wide variety of options and comes quick! The vibe is good - nicer than a typical pub, but casual enough to stop by on any given night. The front windows also open like garage doors so you have the option of enjoying patio- like weather right on Yonge. If you're ever in the core and want something quick, casual, yet GOOD....Three Brewers is a good choice.
