While you’d think the main appeal at a place called 1608 Crafthouse would be the beer, the food is actually the star at this gastropub. You’ll find plenty of locals, beer enthusiasts, and tourists passing through here, and they’re all probably eyeing the same tray of poutine or burgers coming out of the kitchen. The bacon burger will leave you day-dreaming about it for days, with white cheddar melted into the burger and bacon chunks seared into the patty, while their riff on poutine comes with oxtail chili instead of gravy and is served with a runny egg right on top. Come here hungry, preferably after a day of relaxing on the beach or kayaking along the bay.
