Beer. Food. Fun. Be there!
Take the subway to Union Station on the Yonge Line. Look for "Sky Walk" signs in Union Station and then walk West on the Sky Walk. This takes you through the Metro Toronto Convention Center (MTCC) south building and you will exit onto the north side of Bremner Blvd. Cross the street to the south side and come on in!
Take the Gardiner Expressway to the Spadina exit. Take Spadina north to Bremner Blvd. and turn east/right proceeding 3 blocks to 255 Bremner Blvd. There are several paid parking lots in the area: under Steam Whistle in the MTCC parking lot accessed from Lower Simcoe Street, or down at Harbourfront on Queens Quay west of Rees St.
The Roundhouse Winter Craft Beer Festival will showcase only beers from bona fide Ontario Craft Brewers, based on their passion to re-kindle and keep alive the spirit of traditional brewing: independent ownership, smaller batches, artisanal styles, quality ingredients, all-natural and undiluted. As always we’ll be showcasing brews from members of the Ontario Small Brewers Association and NEW this year, we’ve extended an invitation to Alberta Small Brewers as well.

After mastering the skill of brewing in England in the late 1970s, Charles MacLean brought his expertise to Ontario and helped forge the path for the Ontario Craft Beer scene. During that time, Charles had his hands in the start-up of several Ontario breweries, consulting and developing both their breweries and brews still enjoyed today. More recently, after committing many hours learning the trade from Charles at his small home brewery, Michael D’Agnillo and Curtis Schmalz convinced him to delay retirement, and follow their shared passion for beer. Using Charles’ legacy, the guys came together to expand and create the new MacLean’s Ales. Brewing began last June 2014 in Hanover (2 hours north of Toronto).
