The Brews are coming: Toronto Festival of Beer 2017

Summer here and it's time for beer! @TOBeerFestival returns to Exhibition Place July 28-30 for another installment of great food, great entertainment and a whole lot of tasty adult beverages. For 2017 the Beer Store presents an incredible line up of Toronto Chefs, musical performances by Method Man & Redman, Sloan, and Great Big Sea's Alan Doyle & The Beautiful Gypsies and a massive selection of 416 different beers at the 19+ event.

Celebrating Canada's birthday TFOB will feature the 20,000 square-foot Canada 150 Pavilion dedicated to fine brewers and tasty food from our great country. "It feels great to be celebrating Canada's 150th birthday at our 2017 festival," said Les Murray, President of Toronto's Festival of Beer, "We carefully hand-selected beer from coast to coast to feature inside our Canada 150 Pavilion and can't wait for beer lovers to experience it!" Participants from the West Coast, East Coast, Ontario and Quebec will each showcase 48 brands of beer that are winners of both the Canadian Brewing Awards and the Ontario Brewing Awards.
Within the Festival of Beer will be the TasteTFOB, presented by TO's Finest, in partnership with Labatt, Broil King and Cheese Boutique with chefs and restaurants from Toronto's savory hotspots. "The food element at Toronto's Festival of Beer continues to grow each year and that's because we've been fortunate enough to have such strong support by the best Chefs and restaurants in this city," said Les Murray, President of Toronto's Festival of Beer, "Just take a look at our Grilling Tent lineup!
