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.
Participating Craft Breweries:
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
There’s a great pre-event write-up on TasteTo who were also in attendance.
Disclosure: I got comped entrance by the organisers and it turned out that our cousin Ben was part of the catering crew.

Pre-Christmas Taste Fest.
These are beers or the world and winter brews, mostly purchased from World Market.
Many of these beers have a strong bitter hop flavor.
Most are not extraordinary , with two notable excepts.
The one that claims to be the most extraordinary – yuck!
And the Pumpkin Ale was very refreshing – I was pleasantly surprised.
