While some of Ontario’s best craft beers will remain in the spotlight, Toronto’s Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival, Aug. 9-10, is building an all-new program around the independently brewed suds.
“We created the Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival to give beer lovers a chance to enjoy some of the finest craft brews coming out of this province,” says Tim McLaughlin, vice-president of marketing at Steam Whistle Brewing. “But it has become more than just a chance to drink beer. With live music, a movie night, backyard games and food trucks, it is great party, in a great park setting in the heart of downtown Toronto.”
This year’s festival will feature 40 craft beer vendors, food trucks, a music lineup — to be announced — curated from the NXNE festival and the Brew and View movie on Friday night when they will be screening the 1986 Tom Cruise classic Top Gun.
There are also new ticket types available, including a full weekend pass and early entry for the Saturday.
