Spring Session of Toronto Festival of Beer
If you’re like me, you’ve friggen had it with this cold weather. You’re dreaming of warmer days with beers and patios. If you’re a fan of the Toronto Festival of Beer, you may be interested to know that they have put together a spring festival. The festival takes place this Friday and Saturday (March 28/29) at the Evergreen Brickworks. Full details are below.
From the brewery lineup posted on their site, it looks more craft than not, which stands out from the summer festival. It’ll probably still be cold, but beer with friends is still beer with friends. Cheers!
Celebrate the End of Winter with a Cold One
Toronto’s Festival of Beer Spring Sessions launches March 28
TORONTO, Ont. — No matter the season, no matter the weather, there is always time for a cold, refreshing beer.
Building on the success of its perennial sell-out summertime event,Toronto’s Festival of Beer is launching the inaugural Spring Sessions festival March 28-29 at the Evergreen Brick Works. Spring Sessions will bring together more than 20 breweries, food vendors and live entertainment to kick off a new season when the weather starts to warm and Canadians begin to venture outside again.
“Spring Sessions is an early start to Toronto’s Festival of Beer where we can celebrate the amazing and diverse array of brews available in the Toronto area,” says Les Murray from Toronto’s Festival of Beer. “It’s been a long, cold winter and it’s time to get out of our homes and gather with some friends over a cold one.”
Several breweries will be sampling their beer at Spring Sessions, including: Great Lakes Brewery, Granville Island Brewing, Steam Whistle, Mill Street, Left Field Brewery, Czechvar, Nickel Brook, King Brewery, Creemore Springs Brewery, Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery, Waterloo Brewing Co., Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company, Big Rig Brewery, Brickworks Ciderhouse, Highlander Brew Co. and more.
With some of Toronto’s hottest and most trendy restaurants preparing food on site, you will be able to pair your favourite brew with some incredible dishes. Fidel Gatro’s, Smoke’s Poutinerie, Rock Lobster, Oyster Boy, Hot Bunzz Street Cuisine, Rashers, The Pie Commission and Tiny Tom Donuts will be among the hotspots offering their cuisine.
In addition to the beer and food, there will be live music both days of Spring Sessions, including a Battle of the Brewery Bands and special Earth Hour guest on March 29.
“We’re not breaking any new ground when we proclaim that beer is pretty good on its own,” says Les. “But add some live music and excellent food to the beer selection, and you have the makings of a great day.”
Tickets for Toronto’s Festival of Beer Spring Sessions are on sale now for $30, which includes five sampling tokens and a Commemorative Festival Mug.
Attendees can take advantage of a free shuttle bus to the festival from Broadview Station departing every 15 minutes.
