I’m very excited to say that this weekend I will be staying in the city to attend the Toronto Festival of Beer, which takes place at Bandshell Park from July 25th to July 27th! This will be my second year attending and I cannot wait to celebrate the golden beverage by making my way through the grounds sampling as many brands possible! If you are a beer enthusiast like myself then this is the festival for you! Some of the things I enjoyed last year and look forward again to this year are:
1) Beer in the souvenir sampling cup
2) Food – Think BBQ and all other foods that taste good with beer
3) Fun beer merchandise
4) Live music
In it’s 20th year, I can only imagine it gets bigger and better each year! In fact, I just discovered they have a fun app that you can download called the TFOB 2014, which has a map of the grounds so you don’t get lost, a list of all the food vendors that will be on site and a list of the different beer brands that you can add to your ‘favourite list’ in case you forget what beer you tried at the festival!
For the selfie lovers out there! You can take some really hilarious photos with their #BeerMe photo frame! Here’s my excited face!
Tickets are still available for Friday night and Sunday, so if you don’t already have your tickets go to the Toronto Festival of Beer website (http://beerfestival.ca/tickets/) to purchase them.
Just a friendly reminder the event is rain or shine. Last year it rained pretty hard for about an hour and then it was sunny and humid the rest of the day. So to ensure you’re prepared, here is a small list of items you may want to consider bringing with you:

See you at the beer tents!
