leslieville beer festival

Toronto is getting a new beer festival and block party

Toronto beer drinkers have a lot to be thankful for in 2016. Along with an influx of new breweries, there are also plenty of boozy festivals popping up, including a new one in Leslieville.

The inaugural Leslieville Beer Fest is happening on Saturday, August 27 from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. This block party will take over Dundas Street East from Logan to Carlaw and will feature a slew of breweries, including Muddy York Brewing Co., Collective Arts Brewery, Sweetgrass Brewing Co., as well as the neighbourhood's incoming Radical Road Brewing Co.

This festival will also feature local restaurants because you don't want to be drinking on an empty stomach.

Tickets are currently on sale for $20 and each one includes a commemorative glass as well as three tasting tokens.
