The most popular place to head to on a Friday night is The Brooklyn, a cool spot tucked away just on the edge of the downtown core. The main draw here is the great selection of craft beer, predominantly sourced from local Ontario breweries. There is also live music and trivia nights on various evenings during the week. The crowd seems to be mainly composed of post-grad students from Queen’s University’s law faculty and there’s a friendly vibe, with a good number of tables large enough to accommodate big groups.
If you’re a fan of local micro breweries, Stone City Ales is the place for you. With a lively, welcoming atmosphere, they also makes their own brews. The core line up of beers consists of four solid brews but there are also a range of specials that are released periodically for a limited period of time.

Describing itself as a ‘premier destination for craft beer’, The Alibi focuses on beer and signature cocktails in an atmospheric setting. Particularly popular on Wednesdays, when it hosts a trivia night, the place is perfect for relaxing with a group of friends, enjoying conversation or cracking into one of their well-loved board games. If you’re looking to expand your knowledge of beer it’s a great idea to ask the server’s for their personal recommendations.
