For the second year in a row, we’re hosting our craft beer brethren in our own backyard for what Toronto Life Magazine named as one of the top 5 beer festivals to attend this year!


The Roundhouse Park will be transformed into a great outdoor festival where long-time beer fans and those newly discovering the craft beer movement can sample & savour offerings from local producers.  On August 10 and 11 from noon-7pm, attendees will be able to pair flavourful ales, crisp lagers, seasonal and experimental beers with fare from gourmet food trucks, all within a park setting while local indie bands entertain.


The festival showcases beers from the association of Ontario Craft Brewers, who have a passion to re-kindle and keep alive the spirit of traditional brewing. Independent ownership, smaller batches, artisanal styles, quality ingredients, all-natural and undiluted beers are hallmarks of their Brewing Philosophy & Standards.
