Burdock is a relatively new restaurant and brew pub near Dufferin and Bloor. They manage to look nice and simple without achieving quite the spartan aesthetic of most brew pubs - although they do retain the big glass wall at the back with stainless steel vats behind it.
Important features of note: they have a big and nice-looking patio (I sat inside) that faces not onto Bloor but onto a side street. They have a bottle shop, and they do flights. The flights are essentially any number of their beers (and the occasional cider apparently) for $3.00-$3.50 for each 5oz(?) sample. I'm told their food is excellent by a regular whose judgement I trust, but I didn't eat this time.
The beer menu of the day is below. The farmhouse had run out, but I had the rest, including the cider. I found the Pilsner light but bitter, and much preferred the Blonde which was quite nice. The "Té" surprised me - I'm not much on sours, but this one is very mild on the sour part and not too bad. The APA was decent. Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan of the cider.
