For the first time in history 50 casks of beer from 20 breweries in Oregon State make their way to Toronto this fall!
The 12th Annual, Cask Days, Cask-Conditioned Beer Festival, returns to Evergreen Brick Works 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, the state of Oregon has been chosen to be the brewery feature presented in conjunction with Gigantic Brewing Portland, Oregon. There will be a variety of 50 beers and ciders available from Oregon State that are available for the first time in Ontario.
Alongside an exceptional line up of beers, Cask Days is flying in Portlands most acclaimed sandwich makers Lardo as the feature food vendor. Torontos restaurants and chefs include: Honest Weight, Home Of The Brave, Brandos Fried Chicken, Birreria Volo, Pawels Pretzels and Sweet Jesus. Some additional festival highlights will be: DJs from Omega Supreme Records of Portland, ten winning beers from the 1st Annual Cask Days home-brew competition held in conjunction with Toronto Brewing and GTA Brews and a satellite farmhouse and sour ales event featuring: Upright, Logsdon, Pfriem, Cascade and De Garde Brewing of Oregon state.
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.
