The Bier Markt on the esplanade has been a staple in Toronto for many years with it's extensive variety of beers they have to offer, live entertainment, jovial atmosphere and best of all, a great patio to enjoy the great summer weather.
There's so much beer to choose from that sometimes you don't know where to begin so I take cues from the signs around the resto and order their signature beer of the moment - the Hertog jan. This is a Belgium ale that was good to sip on - dynamic in flavour and nutty in aroma. The other summer favourite beverage to try was the Siegel Radler, a low calorie and fruity drink option. Its a mixture of the Austrian Steigel ale with a sweet grapefruit soda. It's a really light and refreshing drink.
I did eye the tower of oysters at the next table which looked very appetizing and a definite try next time. They also had a Shellfish Festive menu on promotion until July created by Bier Markt Executive Chef, Michael Cipollo
who designed each dish to offer restaurant patrons a fresh assortment
of shellfish perfect for the patio, sharing and pairing with one of Bier
It was a really lovely evening out on the patio and look forward to more summer time fun here!
