Drink

Craft Beer and Cider are our passion. But we don't leave the old-world breweries behind. Our mission is to offer you the best beer and cider available anywhere.

WVRST proudly offers 600+ bottled and canned Beers and Ciders, and  24 taps of ALWAYS changing/rotating Beers and Ciders, with SIX taps devoted to Ontario Craft Ciders and two taps to Bourbon and a Digestive.  Draught lines are cleaned every two weeks.  We store our beer at optimal temperatures and pour each beer in a glass suited to its character.  We also strive towards quality, and to serving each guest the ultimate glass of beer or cider.

The WVRST Cellaring Program was created to explore the complexity of aged beer once reaching its peak drinking state. Many of of our bottles will not be opened for 10+ years.

At WVRST, we take beer education seriously. All of our floor staff are Cicerone-certified and can answer any questions a customer might have about our beer list. Knowledge is power. It’s sexy too!

THE COMMUNAL SERIES COLLABORATION

WVRST has been collecting all kinds of Wood Barrels to create unique Collaborations with local cider makers and brewers who are passionate about their craft in our province.  Our barrels range from 4-time used Bourbon Barrels to Barrels recently shipped up to Toronto from Kentucky.  We also have a line of Tequila Barrels from Mexico and Rum barrels from the Carribean.

We have released some beautiful products in the past few years that showcase how talented our craftsmen and women in the cider and beer scene are in our province.  The collaboration reflects our firm belief that all things shared with people we love have a more lasting impact on who we are as human beings, hence the name COMMUNAL.  Just like our tables at the restaurant and our continuous drive to be all inclusive in our approach to the dining experience, Communal says it all.  We hope you and your guest feel this Communal sense when you visit us and try one of our Communal Series bottles.

Some of the beers or ciders created for this series are aged in these barrels for many years.  This allows the brewers to experiment with aging their products as they see fit to optimize the true characteristics the barrel brings to the collaboration.

Like fine wine, some beers will reach their peak drinkability only after aging, once all the character and nuance of the raw ingredients has achieved ‘optimal development’. In time, the WVRST Cellaring Program will deliver a unique menu of liquid gold to our more discerning beer enthusiasts.
