Session Toronto 2014
Friday, June 13, 2014 - Saturday, June 14, 2014 -
Yonge and Dundas SquareToronto, ON, Canada
The SESSION Craft Beer Festival was started as a finale to Ontario Craft Beer Week to bring the hard working craft breweries of Ontario and all the supporters together to celebrate craft beer. With a backdrop of burning cop cars and a torrential storm SESSION was born. True we had harsh conditions, but like true Canadians, we pushed on. We made the best of a rainy day and with great beer from across our nation, amazing food and great music; and we celebrated!
In year two with great help from our generous sponsors, notable guest speakers and die hard craft beer fans, we brought the likes of Beer legend Garrett Oliver, musicians Jason CollettE, NQ Arbuckle and New Country Rehab. We were entertained by The Blue Mushroom Sirkus Sideshow (and we even had a flashmob!! ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xo6UATKxBg4 Of course the big feature was the beer from Coast to Coast and from the USA that were available to sample all day long.
In year 3 we saw Spearhead take the prize for best of session again and for the best beer of session we saw Flying Monkeys take the prize. We are teaming them up to make a collaboration beer with Canada’s Brewery of the year – Central City! Look out for this beer as it will be distributed all over the country. It was the official beer of the
Canadian Brewing Awards in Victoria in 2013.
We asked attendees of SESSION what they liked best about the set up and entertainment and with your answers we are trying to make this years SESSION the best one yet.
