Beer Fest!

196 years ago, Fort York protected the lives of Torontonians against an invasion from the United States. This weekend (today, tomorrow, and Sunday) the old fortress plays host to a much more lively occasion: the 11th annual Toronto Festival of Beer.

With over 200 different beer to sample, including a wonderful selection of Ontario Craft brews, as well as rare and hard to find Belgian ales, there's sure to be a flavour for everybody - even the non-beer drinkers (the meads are always nice and fruity).

I'll be there on the Sunday myself, tasting my way through as many interesting draughts as possible; expect a full wrap-up with reviews of some favourites soon after - Garry will also be covering the food and BBQ attractions from the fest.

And if BBQ isn't your style, just jump on the rocket and head to the East - the Taste of the Danforth will be serving up plenty of beer-friendly souvlaki this weekend as well.
