Don your stompin' boots, pull on a toque and wear your puffiest parka because it's time to hoist a pint or two with the Craft Brewers of Ontario while the snowflakes are falling.
Dare to join us for this crazy Canuck fun! Mark your calendars and come out to the Winter Craft Beer Festival outside Steam Whistle Brewing in Roundhouse Park.
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 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.
