Olympic Fundraiser: Abbot on the Hill

This Thanksgiving weekend why don't you come out and join the staff of the Abbot on the Hill as they launch, for the 1st time in Ontario, the Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen at their Oktoberfest Olympic fundraiser.

The Abbot on the Hill will only be open to ticket holders on Saturday October 11th & Sunday October 12th. Tickets can be purchased directly from the Abbot on the Hill at 1276 Yonge St. and can only be purchased in person. It should be noted that this event will sell out.

Your $20 ticket entitles you to admittance, a choice of five authentic traditional Oktoberfest dishes for your dinner/ brunch, door prizes, silent auctions featuring signed paraphernalia from our Olympic athletes, and if you are one of the first fifty in the door you keep you authentic branded glassware.

Proceeds from the two day event benefit five young ladies from the Women’s Olympic Hockey Team, and one of the Men’s Eight Man Rowing teams. There will also be some Olympic athletes in attendance to chat with the crowd and sign autographs.

Unlike other Oktoberfests in the province this event will not feature generic lagers from massive corporations, but ONLY authentic Oktoberfest beers, and traditional Oktoberfest food.

So, what beers will be featured you ask?

  • As previously mentioned, the Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen will be available on draught for the first time in Ontario,

  • The Konig Ludwig Weisse. Named after Crown Prince Ludwig who later became King Ludwig I,

  • The Hacker Pschorr Dunkel Weisse featuring Hacker-Pschorr's centuries-old, exclusive yeast strain, Hallertau hops and 60% malted wheat and 40% malted barley,

  • The Hacker Pschorr Pils the classic favourite and one of the 1st beers to be imported to the United States in the 19th century,

  • Warsteiner Premium Verum & Dunkel. Warsteiner is brewed with fresh Arnsberger Forest spring water sourced at the brewery in Warsteiner, Germany. Soft water helps create the smooth taste and thick creamy head. Brewed according to the German Purity beer law of 1516.

So as you can see from the press release above, this event sounds like an all around good time with some terrific beers and all for the low price of $20 a ticket. Get yours today and help one of Toronto's friendliest beer bars assist our Canadian Olympic athletes in the years to come!
