The Beer Fest in Photos

Never underestimate the tenacity of a dedicated beer drinker.

This is the lesson I learned after attending the Toronto Festival of Beer this past Sunday. It was my fourth year at the fest, and the first time that there was even a cloud in the sky. At first it drizzled, but then it poured.

I didn't know what to expect. Would the legions of beer drinkers who had descended on Fort York suddenly scatter? Or would they crowd under each beer tent, drinking more beer than they would have otherwise, while trying to stay out of the rain?

Look at the photos to find out (like it's a big mystery).

The rain finally finished with a few hours left and everyone celebrated with a drink.

I'll be posting more photos from the Toronto Festival of Beer later this week.
