CASK Toronto

Over the last couple of months, a handful of beer enthusiasts, brewers and pub owners have been meeting at various locations to discuss the state of cask conditioned ale (or real ale) in the city of Toronto.

These discussions have led to the formation of a brand new advocacy group dedicated to raising awareness of local cask conditioned ale and to promote it to a wider audience. CASK! seeks to improve the availability, selection and quality of cask ale in Toronto, and ultimately across Ontario.

Membership in CASK! is free for individuals, and we will soon be introducing a Commercial Membership level with a nominal fee for brewers and licensees. Watch this website for details on future meetings and other ways you can get involved. I'll also be posting more information as it becomes available.

In the mean time, check out the CASK website to obtain a list of fine establishments in Toronto and elsewhere in Ontario that currently serve cask beer. You can also find the list of Ontario brewers who actively participate in the brewing of cask ale.

There will also be more information provided for those interested during CASK's first event this Sunday at Victory Cafe from 12pm - 7pm. As mentioned earlier on this blog, 10 beers will be available from five breweries.

You can contact the CASK group at if you have any questions or comments.

Get Real… Ask for Cask!
