CASK! Toronto Takes Us to Buffalo

The fine folks behind the creation of the group CASK!, are pleased to release the latest information about their fantastic idea for a beer lover's bus trip.

On Saturday December 6, 2008, a luxury coach bus will be departing Front Street (in front of Union station) in downtown Toronto to head south to Buffalo for a visit to the 1st annual Buffalo Cask Ale Festival taking place at Cole's and Mr. Goodbar (just doors down from each other). A $75 ticket includes the cost of the bus (which by the way will have a porcelain throne), admission to the festival, your first pint and lunch at Cole's. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday. On a bus with other beer enthusiasts, sampling from 15 casks and being merry and cheerful before the rush of the Christmas season arrives.

To buy a ticket, please visit the CASK! website and click on the paypal option. The trip will require at least 40 ticket buyers in order to be financially fiscal, and failing to do so will result in the event being cancelled (but I know there are more than 40 cask ale fans in Toronto/GTA who'll step up). All tickets must be purchased by November 25th and can only be obtained by individuals 21 years of age or older (US alcohol legislation). The bus will be leaving Union station at 9:00am and will leave Buffalo at 6:00pm. There will be no beer allowed on the bus, which will limit the trips to the loo, but I would imagine there will be some great stories shared.

Visit the CASK! website to learn more about the great organization and the plans/ ticket information regarding the December 6th event. Hope to see many readers there!
