The lo­cal uptown off­shoot of a now-shut­tered Hal­i­fax brew pub, the Gran­ite has been spread­ing the good word on lo­cally brewed Bri­tish-style ales for over 20 years. Its Hop­ping Mad has cleaned up in the cask-con­di­tioned ale cat­e­gory four years run­ning at On­tario’s Golden Tap Awards. It’s a fam­ily af­fair: founder Ron Keefe re­cently passed the head brewer’s torch to his daugh­ter, Mary-Beth Keefe. Flag­ship brews like the Pe­cu­liar Ale and Keefe’s Ir­ish Stout have been en­joyed around town for years, but lately the Gran­ite’s branched out with more sea­sonal and small-batch brews. Years op­er­at­ing 23 in Toronto; the orig­i­nal Hal­i­fax pub was founded in 1985. Spe­cialty Bri­tish-style brews and cask ales; growlers and kegs avail­able at Gran­ite’s store, open Mon­day to Satur­day 11:30 am to 11 pm, Sun­day 11 am to 11 pm. Food The large menu cov­ers lots of pub-ap­pro­pri­ate ter­ri­tory like burg­ers, beer­bat­tered fish and chips, Cobb salad and cur­ries. Reg­u­lar menus are rounded out with ro­tat­ing weekly spe­cials. Pa­tio Front and back seat­ing 45 and 90 re­spec­tively. Hours Mon­day 11:30 am to mid­night, Tues­day to Satur­day 11:30 am to 1 am, Sun­day 11 am to mid­night.
