3rd annual Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival

Steam Whistle Brewing for the third year hosts the Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival in their own backyard for what Toronto Life Magazine named as one of the top 5 beer festivals to attend in Toronto. The independent craft brewer will transform Roundhouse Park into a great outdoor festival where long-time beer fans and those newly discovering the craft beer movement can sample & savour offerings from local producers. From 12noon to 7pm the weekend of August 9th-10th, attendees will be able to pair flavourful ales, crisp lagers, seasonal and experimental beers with fare from gourmet food trucks, all within a park setting while local indie bands entertain.

“We’ve been overwhelmed with such positive feedback about the Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival that we’ve made it bigger and better to showcase even more local craft beer talent without losing the original vibe of the festival,” explains Tim McLaughlin, Steam Whistle Brand Manager and festival organizer. “Our goal is to create a relaxed atmosphere for beer exploration and education. It’s just such a great event combining good people, good eats and great beer.”

The festival, which continues to grow in popularity, expands this year both in space and in attractions. This year patrons can expect more beer varieties with 20 different craft brewers, showcasing the re-emergence of craft beer and a greater diversity of crowd pleasing food trucks. New editions to the craft beer roaster include Railway City Brewing, Highlander Brew Co. and Side Launch Brewing to name a few. The festival setup provides plenty of room to linger and learn from Ontario Craft Brewers.
