Volo's 20th Anniversary Celebration: April 20th

April marks the 20 year anniversary for Volo, a well known Toronto beer destination on Yonge Street, just north of Wellesley. Owner Ralph Morana will be opening the doors on Sunday April 20th, from 12pm-10pm for a special celebration featuring some terrific beers from Ontario brewers.

The line-up includes:

Casks
Black Oak Double Chocolate Cherry Stout
Grand River Mild/Plowman's ale Blend
Cameron's Pomegranate Cream Ale
Amsterdam Framboise
Church Key West Coast Pale Ale Oaked
Durham ESB

Taps

Church Key Grains of Wrath DIPA
King Pilsbock Unfiltered
Nickelbrook Cuvee 07 Strong Spiced Ale
Great Lakes Chocolate Orange Peel Ale
Stratford Common Steam Lager
Barley Days Sugar Shack Ale
Granite Gin Lane Barley Wine
Neustadt Big Dog Porter
Durham Hop Addict IPA Hop Infused
Grand River Ploegers Vlaams Rood

So, as you can see, it's quite a list that doesn't have to beg for attention. It appears that Great Lakes is having a little fun with their Orange Peel Ale, which to me sounds delicious and some other breweries are playing with some creations. This should no doubt be another great event for the curious beer drinker in all of us.

Admission will be free and the patio will be open for business (the casks will be tapped here). So head over to the famed Volo and shake Ralph's hand. After all, he has done so much for the Toronto beer scene.

Congratulations Ralph, and the rest of the Morana/Volo team.
