Bremner has been changing over the years. First we got the Ripley’s Aquarium, then the amazing Rec Room, and now, delicious eats. Steam Whistle Brewing has been in the brick roundhouse on Bremner for a very long time. In 1999 Steam Whistle took on a lease at the roundhouse to open a factory on-site. The rest is history. Steam Whistle has been brewing up fresh pilsner every since. In 2018 they expanded their operations to include another brewery. Now only 40% of Steam Whistle beer is brewed in Toronto. The rest is brewed in Vaughan.
Don’t be sad, this has freed up some space for some pretty cool things, including their new 2,500 square feet European inspired Biergarden. The restaurant is decked out in green and white with glowing neon signs and fresh plants. It has a very casual vibe, diners go to the green shipping container to place their orders. The goal was to create a traditional beirgarden that reflects the beauty of the ones in Munich, Germany. The restaurant can seat 100 people in bench style seating. When it warms up, 50 people will be able to dine on the patio.

Off-roading in a safari vehicle down a bumpy, winding dirt road on the outskirts of Yala National Park, I wasn’t sure what to expect when we arrived. I was in Sri Lanka, heading to a safari camp, Yala Sanctuary. Half an hour earlier, we had been picked up from Tissamaharama by Dinesh.
I wanted to be adventurous and stay in the park. I wanted to go camping, but not in a rustic way. Glamping definitely fit the bill for me. Yala Sanctuary is a new safari camp that opened in November. It looked magical, and I knew I wanted to experience it.
When we arrived at the camp, we were greeted with a roadway lined with tiki torches and a beautiful straw tent. We were greeted with the cutest coconut drinks, and immediately felt like we were at home.
Before opening his own camp, Dinesh worked in the park as a guide and at other parks. He’s passionate about animals, and takes great pride in his work. (more…)
