Cask Days Cask Beer Festival Tickets Available
Via Cask Days:
October has become Ontario’s annual month to celebrate cask-conditioned ale – a term for unfiltered, unpasteurized, naturally carbonated beer that undergoes a secondary fermentation in the cask (container). Once tapped, cask-ale – also referred to as “real ale”, has only a few days to be consumed at its peak; we call these days ‘Cask Days’.
Cask Days is excited to announce the 8th year of our Cask-Conditioned Craft Beer Festival in Toronto, Ontario that will take place on Saturday, October 27th and Sunday, October 28th 2012. This year we will be hosting the festivities at a new venue, Evergreen Brickworks, a dynamic public space in the heart of Toronto’s Don Valley. The festival is planning to feature cask-conditioned ales from over 50 microbreweries across the country and will also introduce an international section showcasing casks from outside of Canada – marking the only festival of its kind in the country.
Cask Days was founded by barVolo in 2005 and has remained family run for the last eight years. Our aim this year is to give you a unique beer festival experience that celebrates not only local craft beer but local food, art and music. Cheers!
