Is outside food allowed in the tasting room?
Yes! We have a number of local snacks available for purchase, but if you're looking for something a bit heartier to enjoy with a Faculty beer or Oddity Kombucha in hand, feel free to bring your own take-out food into the tasting room!
Are minors allowed in the tasting room?
Minors are allowed, as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Can I make reservations?
We take reservations for groups of 8+ and it is possible to book out our entire indoor or patio spaces. Our capacity limit is for 39 people indoors and 21 on our side patio, this includes staff. For more info, visit our Bookings and Reservations page.
How do we find out which beers are on tap?
Give us a call!
Do you have non alcoholic options?
Yes! Our sister brand, Oddity Kombucha is brewed across the street from Faculty and we proudly serve it in our taproom. You can have it by the glass, growler, or can.
What's with the numbers?
Our beers are numbered using a system based on the way in which universities and colleges number courses by their degree of complexity and expertise. Each beer's number reflects the sophistication of its flavour profile. Lower numbers indicate a more entry-level beer, while higher numbers are reserved for more experimental and bold-flavoured beers.
What's with the patterns?
Similarly to our numbering system, each Faculty Beer label has a pattern to illustrate its complexity, alcohol level, and the general sophistication of its flavour profile. Simpler patterns indicate a more entry-level beer, while more intricate patterns are reserved for more experimental and bold flavoured beers.
I am a big fan of a specific Faculty beer. Why do your taps keep changing?
We believe that less is more. Our constantly changing taps are meant to encourage our customers to experiment with different beer styles and surprise you each time you come visit. We always make sure to have a wide range of numbers on tap so there’s something for everyone. Follow us on social media to stay updated on when your favourite will be back on tap.
Do you do growler fills?
Yes! You can purchase a Faculty Brewing Co. growler to transport your beer, or as a great gift. These are priced as follows (excludes tax):
1L Growler $7
1.9L Growler $9
Always rinse your growler when you're done with it, then we'll run it through our growler-cleansing system. We also have spare lids.
Please note: fills may not be available from all taps. Give us a call to see what's pouring.
Can I fill up a growler from a different brewery?
Yes. We are all a family! We'll fill up any growler as long as it matches the volumes we list (1L or 1.9L).
What if I don’t have a growler and don’t want to purchase one. Is there any other way I can take home some of your beer?
We have a fridge stocked with cans (437ml) and bottles (500ml or 650ml), subject to availability. To enjoy the beers we're pouring at home, we recommend buying a growler as it can be reused and filled up at other breweries around the city so it is very environmentally friendly.
Is your beer fresh?
We serve it straight out of the tank. It couldn’t be fresher.
Where is Faculty beer brewed?
All of the beers we serve are brewed right on site at 1830 Ontario. Sometimes we have guest taps on offer from friends of ours and other breweries.
Can I purchase Faculty Brewing Co. beers in any liquor stores?
Yes! As well as bars and restaurants. Although the list of stockists change constantly so Contact Us if you're looking somewhere specific.
Do you sell kegs for special events?
Yes. We can even rent you dispensing equipment for your event. There's more information on our Kegs page, or you can contact us.
Can I put your beer on tap at my restaurant/bar/pub?
Yes, we would love that. Contact us at email@example.com!
What is an IPA (or lager, or ale, or sour, or saison, or stout…..etc.)?
Come into the brewery! We love explaining the brewing process to everyone. We’ll lay everything out in the simplest way possible so you’ll be able to impress your friends and family with awesome beer knowledge.
What do ABV and IBU stand for?
Alcohol by Volume percentage and International Bitter Unit. Both indicate the taste, depth and intensity of the beer.
