Summer has faded, and we’ve said good bye to backyard barbecues and late nights on the local patio. But while some may see the fall as time to start hibernating, I know that it’s the best time of year for beer! Thanks to Cask Days, the fun doesn’t have to end.

The Toronto After Dark film festival comes at the perfect time of year. On the heels of TIFF, it always helps to counteract my post-festival blues. As well it kicks off the Halloween season into high gear, with a delightful assortment of chills, kills and thrills. Whether you’re into horror, sci fi, dramas, or just the unusual; TAD will have something for you!

This weekend brings us one of the city’s time-honoured traditions – the Toronto Festival of Beer. In anticipation of the big event, let’s take a look back at Beerfests gone by.

Spotlight On: Craft Beer Passport 2017

Whenever I go to a new place, the first thing I look up is the list of local breweries and craft beer bars. I find it the quickest way to get to know the cool areas of town, and get a feel for the nightlife. I also find that when you live in a place, you can get stuck in your neighborhood and miss out on some really cool venues that really aren’t all that far away. Enter the Craft Beer Passport – your ticket to beer exploration! What originally began as a paper booklet, then became a choice of booklets, has evolved again to meet the needs of our changing times. The Craft Beer Passport is back for 2017 – now in app form!

Summer Lady Beer Festival 2017

Impossible as it may seem, summer is finally upon us. Which means it’s time for beer festivals a-plenty! Trying something new, the Society of Beer Drinking Ladies advertised a first for the city – a beer festival on the Toronto Island! Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be, as flooding has kept the Island closed even as our weather has steadily improved. Nevertheless, they persisted, and were able to pull off the festival as planned on the mainland instead.
