If you loved hitting up local breweries before having kids, then you’ll love these family-friendly breweries in Toronto! Most breweries across the city are quite welcoming of kids but some go the extra mile, allowing adults to enjoy delicious craft beer without having to call a babysitter.

If you’d rather hang out at home, many of these breweries also offer pick-up and delivery options. Let’s keep supporting our local businesses even when we can’t visit in person!
