I think we can all agree that winter in Canada can get pretty miserable. Once we make it through the cheerful and family-filled month of December and the fun, resolution-filled month of January all we're really left with is piles of snow and lots of darkness.
But if there's one thing that Toronto doesn't give up during these dark, cold months of winter it's exciting events! Instead of going into hibernation for the last few winter months of the year, we can get outside and make the most of it by attending some seriously great events all over the city.
One, in particular, is perfect for beer lovers and it's called the Toronto Winter Brewfest! It's been around for a few years now but if you haven't had the chance to go this year is the perfect time to experience it yourself.
The Toronto Winter Brewfest is back again this year but they're planning on expanding to become bigger and better than ever! For the last few years they were located at the Enercare Centre but this year they're moving to the Evergreen Brickworks space! You can find them there from March 1st-2nd for a fun time filled with music, beers, and exciting activities.
This festival is seriously huge with over 40 breweries on site from Ontario and Quebec and over 150 craft beers to sample. But that's not all they have! There will also be tons of delicious food trucks, a DJ, a speakeasy, carnival games, and even beer yoga classes!
You can purchase tickets to the event for 3 different sessions, Friday from 6 pm - 1 am, Saturday from 12 pm - 5 pm, and Saturday from 7 pm - 1 am depending on when you want to show up. Right now they're offering pre-sale tickets until January 31st for a lower cost.
They have 5 different ticket options available, The Taster for $18.99 which includes entrance and a tasting cup, The Equipped Taster for $26.99 which includes admission, 10 tokens, coat check, and a tasting cup, The Master Brewer for $33.99 which includes admission, 20 tokens, coat check, and a tasting cup, VIP for $52.99 which includes admission, an official souvenir glass, 5 tokens, access to the VIP zone, priority access, a candy/popcorn bar, and coat check, and finally The Cicerone for $68.99 which includes admission, one hour early access to the event, 20 tokens, and an official souvenir glass!
It's going to be a super fun event that beer lovers don't want to miss out on this winter, especially in their new location! If you want to join the beer yoga class on Saturday, March 2nd at 10 am you'll have to buy a separate ticket on their site!
