Toronto's Festival of Beer Hosting Spring Sessions

Toronto's Festival of Beer Hosting Spring Sessions

Help your body speed up its winter thaw.

Transitioning from winter into spring is going to be a lot easier this year as Toronto’s Festival of Beer is throwing its inaugural Spring Sessions event.

When it comes to Greater Toronto brewers, the best of the best will be in attendance.

So far the festival includes Steam Whistle, Mill Street, Great Lakes Brewery, Flying Monkeys and a whole host of others, with more to be added soon.

A great brew is best complemented with great grub and the festival isn’t slacking when it comes to this, either. 

In addition to the 20 breweries attending, the food vendors will include some of Toronto’s most popular, like divine seafood specialists Rock Lobster and Oyster Boy, late-night kings Smoke’s Poutinerie and fancy-food-truck-turned-restaurant Fidel Gastro’s.

The festival is being held on Saturday, March 29 from 2 – 8 p.m. at the Evergreen Brick Works.  Located just north of the Bloor line at 550 Bayview, there will be free shuttle service from Broadview station.  Tickets are on sale now for $30, which includes your first five sampling tokens and a commemorative festival mug.

A premier 911 Beer Garden Gala is being held the night before on Friday, March 28 from 4 – 10 p.m.  This event is in support of the selfless and dedicated 911 workers of the Greater Toronto Area.  Tickets for this event are also on sale, going for $80.  This price includes your first 20 sampling tokens, as well as the commemorative festival mug.  Some of the proceeds will be donated to individual charity organizations of each Association.

Make sure to keep an eye on Festival of Beer's official website and check up on their Facebook page to stay on top of all the news and action. Don't forget to share this post with all your beer-loving friends and anyone who could use this festival to tide them over until official patio season.
