Toronto Beer Week

A few months ago, while at the cask social at Volo (or maybe it was a Beau’s event, I can’t recall), I had been in a discussion about Toronto Beer Week.  I had happily confirmed that Castro’s would do an event, and looked forward to hearing more.  So I was stoked when this arrived in my inbox yesterday, from Troy Burtch:

Toronto Beer Week


First annual event to be held September 20-26, 2010

JUNE 26, 2010 – TORONTO – The team at Toronto Beer Week Ltd. is excited to announce that Toronto will have a week-long celebration of beer this fall. With over 15 North American cities (including Vancouver, San Diego, Chicago and Philadelphia) already hosting successful beer weeks, the time is right for Toronto to stage an event of our own.

Toronto Beer Week (TBW) is a collective series of events dedicated to the celebration and advancement of the craft beer movement. TBW will showcase authentically brewed and flavourful beer, the talented brewers who create them, and the licensees who proudly support them. It’s all about good beer – no bland, mega beer permitted!

The event will kick off the day after the Toronto International Film Festival comes to a close, and will feature dozens of events held at some of the city’s finest restaurants, bars and pubs. Event examples might include:

– Beer dinners
– Feature cask ale tastings
– Brewing demonstrations
– Neighbourhood pub crawls
– Beer trivia evenings
– And much, much more

The TBW team will work with breweries and licensees to develop unique events that suit their independent character. We are working hard on some exciting ways to promote the Week and encourage awareness of the incredible beers that are now available in Toronto. Updates and more information can be found at or on our Facebook
page or Twitter account.

Toronto Beer Week Ltd. – TBW is a collectively owned organization involving some of Toronto’s most seasoned and passionate beer industry members. Our team includes publicans, brewers, media, marketers, and authors, all bringing their valuable experience and vision to create a significant event that reflects the best interests of all participants.

Cheers to all the good folks who are working hard at this!  Can’t wait to hear more!
