Another great event we attended this summer was the Craft Beer Festival & Summer BBQ at Hart House. Held in the Hart House Courtyard, the place was packed with a wide range of beer affectionados ranging from the beer-by-quantity university crowd to the beer-by-quality tasters & sippers. I’m not entirely sure which team we’re on… perhaps both.
Mirella Amato, Toronto’s Cultural Craft Beer Expert ran a series of beer-education tips and ran through a fascinating history of Beer in Ontario.

Great Lakes Brewery •Grand River Brewing•Cool Beer Brewing Company Inc.•Creemore Springs Brewery•Mill St. Brewery•Wellington Brewing Company•Cameron’s Brewing Company•Big Rock Brewery• F&M Brewery•Barley Days•Black Oak Brewery •Hockley Valley Brewing
