Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival, Toronto, ON

Gord and I went to the fourth annual Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival this afternoon ... it was today and yesterday.  This is the third time we've been to the summer one ... we've also been twice to the winter one.  We met up with our friends, Darlene, Christine and Jennifer, there.

Tickets (which included the tasting mug) were $20 in advance or $25 at the door.   There were about 4,000 people there yesterday (it was sold out) and they were expecting about 2/3 of that today.  It was nice because it never seemed too busy or crowded.

Sample tickets were $1 ... the mug held about nine ounces, which was two tickets. It started at noon, which is when we got there, and ended at 7pm.

They gave out trucker hats when we entered.

Showing off my hat and my beer!

It took place in Roundhouse Park, just south of the CN Tower.  Here are some pictures throughout the afternoon.


Here's what I had ...

Flying Monkey's Wild Patty
Amsterdam Brewery's Sweetwater Squeeze Radler
Trafalgar Blackberry Shine
Sawdust City's Golden Beach Pale
Mill Street's Lemon Tea Beer
Brickworks Ciderhouse's 501

Here are me and Gord.

And here are Darlene, Jennifer and Christine chilling in the sun ...

There was live music all day.

Redsteps were fabulous!

I bought a cheesy chimney stax from Chimney Stax, which was delicious!

Here are me and Darlene, sporting our new hats!  It was hot and sunny so the hats were appreciated!

It was another fun festival!

The only complaint I have is that the area was contained (fenced off) as in previous years ... this year it wasn't.  So anyone could wander into the space and hang out.  It was strange sitting on a picnic bench having a beer while a family ate ice cream and pizza across from us.  It was a beer festival so kids and dogs (it was way too warm for them) shouldn't be allowed.
