12 Beers of Summer, Gladstone Hotel, Toronto, ON

I attended the 12 Beers of Summer at the Gladstone Hotel tonight, which is in our 'hood.  I've been going the last three years to the summer and winter editions.

If you’re feeling like Christmas might come early this year, you’re not wrong! Our biannual 12 Beers event is back with a beer-tacular summer edition.

Don your most exuberant Hawaiian shirt as we celebrate a truly beer-tastic summer’s eve. We’re inviting down 12 amazing breweries so you can sample the best of local lagers, perfect pilsners, seasonal successes, and forever favourites.

Entrance ticket includes All U Can Taste samples for the duration of the event, and all the while you’ll be dancing to our best in-house bands and DJs.

Here are the breweries who were there:
  • Beau's All Natural Brewing Co. 
  • Longslice Brewery 
  • KW Craft Cider 
  • Pommies Cider Co. 
  • Woodhouse Brewing Co. 
  • Sweetgrass Brewing 
  • Steam Whistle Pilsner 
  • Brickworks Ciderhouse 
  • Mill Street Brewery 
  • Amsterdam BrewHouse 
  • Junction Craft Brewing 
  • Ace Hill Beer

I grabbed a drink from the main floor.

Then I headed upstairs to check out the second floor, which tends to get jammed as the night goes on.

I went back downstairs and hung out on the main floor for most of the night and watched the live music.

I went back upstairs for a bit but it was really crowded.

So I headed back downstairs.

There was a DJ on the second floor.

There was live entertainment on the main floor, which was fabulous, and that's where I spent most of my time.  Nathan Da Silva was really good.

Running Red Lights was really good too.
