Godspeed is Best New Microbrewery in Toronto

September 13th, 2017

Craft beer lovers are flocking to Toronto’s east end Little India neighbourhood to check out the city’s newest, coolest, micro-brewery: Godspeed.

Godspeed is a large, modern, open-concept restaurant brewery housed in a huge old retail space on Coxwell Avenue, just south of Gerrard Street east, home of Little India.

Brewmaster Luc “Bim” Lafontaine – a beer superstar in his native Quebec – can usually be seen chatting with guests and even helping a bit with table service in the resto, which features large, open seating tables. (Kind of like pic nic tables – that means if you are a party of two, you might be seated together with another party of four.)

Godspeed serves up Japanese comfort food (not sushi!) along with custom brews made onsite to a packed restaurant each night. The mushroom salad and rice balls, ordered on a recent visit, are outstanding. And the rest looks mighty fine too.

Check it out if you love craft beer and want to visit a great Toronto neighbourhood.
