The Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival will take place August 9 and 10, 2014 at Toronto’s Roundhouse Park. This is your chance to sample beer from many Ontario craft breweries whose beer is all natural, artisanal and made in smaller batches. You can enjoy it with gourmet bites from many of Toronto’s popular food vendors, who will also be at the festival.
The Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival is a casual event in a park-like setting. Bring a blanket so you can have your own private picnic!
Some of the Ontario craft breweries you will encounter at the festival include:
Flying Monkey Brewery, King Brewery, Mill Street Brewery, Left Field Brewery, Wellington Brewery, Steam Whistle Brewing, Black Oak Brewing, Big Rig Brewery, Amsterdam Brewery, Beau’s Brewing, Great Lakes Brewery, Grand River Brewing, Oast House Brewers, Side Launch Brewing, Lake of Bays Brewing, Cameron’s Brewing and Neustadt Springs Brewery.
Food vendors at the festival include Smoke’s Poutinerie, Gorilla Cheese, Dobro Jesti, Fidel Gastro Food Truck, Boreal Gelato, Bomberos Nachos, Pizza Settecento and Mr. Corn.
