This Sunday we worked up a thirst and made our way down to the Steamwhistle Roundhouse for the Craft Beer Festival.
The Toronto Summer is finally in full swing, so the weekend was packed with different events going on around the city in the blazing heat. Having missed out on the Winter Craft Beer Festival earlier in the year, though, we decided to make our way to the Craft Beer Festival to sample some Ontario brews and a few snacks from a selection of food trucks.
The festival was busy but not too busy, with almost 40 breweries set up throughout, live music on stage, and a couple of games of giant beer pong (beer pong but with volleyballs and big black bins). Our first stop though was one of the food trucks, which was serving up some delicious crispy dumplings.
We then set off to make use of our 20 beer tokens, each getting us a (generous) half glass sample of any beer of our choosing. Quite a few of the breweries were experimenting with some unusual flavours, like blood orange, watermelon or cucumber, so we were naturally drawn to those to begin with. When the flavours all got a bit too much for us, we sought out some pleasant, light, summery largers to enjoy while cowering in the shade from the fierce afternoon sun.
We also continued to sample some more snacks from food trucks, enjoying some quesadillas and a top notch pie. We didn't make it all the way through our tokens in the end, but fortunately for us they can be used the next time the Winter Craft Beer Festival is in town, so watch this space.
