Love is the Answer

To address recent events locally, and globally

Our establishment has for the last 21 years proudly served as a watering hole for the students of the University of Toronto, one of the most diverse post-secondary institutions in the world.  Our staff and customers come from a wide variety of social, religious, ethnic and national backgrounds, a fact we take great pride in.  As a UofT student beer hall, we have always been a place of open discussion and academic debate on issues ranging from economics to philosophy, even hosting tutorials during the teaching assistant strike last year.  What we do not support, and will never support, any statements, actions or symbols meant to marginalize, insult, and demean others. Such messages and those looking to spread them, are not welcome in our establishment.  

As always, we will work to maintain a safe and inclusive space to all who come through our doors and encourage anyone who is made to feel uncomfortable or unwelcome by another patron to immediately speak to a member of our staff so that we may resolve the situation.

Thank You

Management and Staff

The Spirit King

Frank was a much loved and popular employee during his many years at ein-stein. He stopped working here this past spring. He will be missed terribly and are taking time to grieve the loss of someone that lifted spirits every possible way.

We live on this wonderful plane of existence. Some people are along for the ride and others make it worth while.

DIY New Years

This brand spanking new unfiltered IPA pours a burnt gold that wears it’s white cap brilliantly. Forget the smell for a second and bask in the beauty of this IPA! Yet, when you get your nose into the glass in front of you, notes of zested lemon, fresh papaya, and some lighter notes of elderberries hit you in the face, then the pine comes along and takes over. The body is medium to medium light with a soft carbonation that allows the flavours of the Equinox hop to shine through. Tropical fruits (papaya, kiwi) and lots of resiny goodness. Sweet up front, then juicy, leading to a pleasant bitterness and a very dry finish.

The Story
“Some folks think we make too many hoppy beers.

Maybe they’re right?

Oh well.”
