Orange Snail Brewers is a beloved craft brewery on Steeles Avenue near Bronte Street. They supply local restaurants and pubs while also offering a captivating on-site experience. With four regular craft beers, including the legendary Iron Pig Pale Ale and the captivating Rattle’ N’ Nemo Amber Ale, inspired by the nearby conservation park, their brews never fail to impress. Don’t miss their ever-changing seasonal and specialty concoctions like the refreshing Blueberry Ale or Blueberry Kölsch.

Every Tuesday and Friday night, Keenan’s Irish Pub hosts Karaoke night! And if you aren’t into singing, visit on a Thursday or Saturday night where a live band plays. Another unique thing about this bar is that kids under 10 years old eat for free with the purchase of an adult meal. If that incentive isn’t enough, the pub serves delicious meals, including drunken shrimp, chicken burgers, crispy cauliflower bites, mussels and much more! How delicious.
