So, I know it's been a while but just a few updates to post in the happenings of the beer world as it relates to Toronto. The Session Craft Beer Festival returns June 25th at 99 Sudbury. Last year was amazing even though it rained most of the day. This year Garrett Oliver from Brooklyn Brewery will be attending the festival to conduct the opening ceremonies. In addition to Brooklyn Brewery there will be a few new breweries this year including Central City, Phillips, Howe Sound, Microbrasserie Charlevoix, Dieu Du Ciel!, Trou Du Diable, Trois Mousquetaires and Rogue. Also, the 3rd annual Ontario Cask IPA Challenge takes place May 14th and 15th at Bar Volo. It will be a single elimination, 3 round blind tasting of IPA's from all over Ontario. "My Bitter Wife" from Great Lakes will defend its crown against IPA's from Flying Monkeys, Black Oak, Muskoka, Scotch Irish, House Ales, Beau's, Duggan's and more.
