Toronto’s Festival of Beer, Toronto, ON

Toronto's Festival of Beer is happening this weekend at Exhibition Place.  Gord and I went this afternoon along with our friends, Darlene and Christine.

The Festival boasts over 60 brewers featuring more than 300 brands from all over the globe. From lagers to stouts, fruit beer to ales, we have something for everyone! The Festival features more than just beer; there are several non-malt based beverages available including cider and ready-to-drink beverages! Our food vendors are all well known Toronto food purveyors creating some great grub for you to enjoy! Whether you’re looking for oysters, poutine, or a burger, you’ll be able to find the perfect thing to satisfy your appetite!

This is our fourth year going and we usually go on the Friday night.  It was fun to go today for a change.

Today was sold out months ago but it never seemed crowded.

Fancy some giant beer pong?
How about bronco riding?
We've seen George do this before

Everyone was having fun ... these were the only ones I saw having a time-out

The festival is spread out over a large space.   There were lots of bands playing.

54-40 were today's headliners ... they still sound great!

Here's what I had ...

Sleeman Lift (with a hint of coconut)
Tempt 9 cider
Keith's IPA, my fav
Flying Monkeys' Wild Patty 
Liefmans Fruitesse
Mill Street Organic

It was a fun festival and it's amazing how fast the time went.  I look forward to going again next year!
