13th Annual Cask Days Beer Festival
The 13th annual Cask Days Cask-Conditioned Beer Festival returns to Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto, Ontario. The festival will offer 400+ beers and ciders served for 3 days with over 10,000 attendees. Cask Days celebrates the love for cask ale: unpasteurized, unfiltered and naturally carbonated beer that is served direct from a cask barrel.
The festival welcomes back breweries and cider producers from across Canada and the United States. This year, New York City has been chosen as the regional feature presented in conjunction with Cory Bonfiglio, owner of Beer Street (Brooklyn, New York). There will be a variety of 32 beers and ciders available from New York City for the first time in Ontario.
Alongside an exceptional line up of beers, chef and author of Food & Beer Daniel Burns flies into Toronto as the feature food vendor. Former pastry chef of Copenhagen's Noma, Daniel later founded New York craft beer bar Tørst, and its neighbouring tasting menu restaurant Luksus, the first and sole Michelin star restaurant to pair only with beer. Toronto’s feature restaurants and chefs include: Grant Grant Van Gameren Harry's Charbroiled, PG Clucks, and Birreria Volo.
From its humble beginnings on the patio of Bar Volo in 2005 with 22 casks, 18 breweries and 130 attendees, Cask Days has grown to be “the most exciting beer event in Toronto” according to Stephen Beaumont, author of World Atlas of Beer.
