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.
