Winter Cask Festival at the Victory Cafe

Mark January 31st on your calendars folks, as the fabulous owners of Victory Cafe have recently announced they will be holding their second cask festival in their pub located in the heart of Mirvish Village (Toronto).

The Winter Cask Ale Festival will take place between 12pm and 7pm and will feature upwards of 12 casks produced by a handful of local breweries to help ring in the new year. Victory hosted their first ever cask festival back in the summer and plans are to build on its success. "Sharing the same goals as the previous festival, this event pays tribute to local traditional cask ales and welcomes everyone who would like to sample the pleasures of these wonderful brews," stated co-owner Maz Brereton.

Beer samples will be offered by the half-pint measure, purchased with a beer ticket available at the festival. Hearty food suitable for the season will also be available with a food ticket.

Tickets can be purchased at the door:
$12 – admission, souvenir glass, two half-pint beer tickets, plus one food ticket
$8 – admission, souvenir glass, and two half-pint beer tickets
$4 – additional food ticket
$3 – additional beer ticket

This is a great way to introduce your friends and family to the terrific qualities found in a pint glass of cask conditioned beer and it will also provide a nice escape from the winter blues we will surly be facing that late in January.

Information regarding the line-up of beers will be posted as they become available.
