Have Your Say - Vote in the Golden Tap Awards

Granite or Grand River? Volo or beerbistro? Black Oak Double Chocolate Cherry Stout or Nickelbrook Cuvee?

These are some of the questions you'll have to yourself as the voting has commenced for the 7th annual Golden Tap Awards hosted by Bar Towel founder, Cass Enright. Enright, who started Bar Towel more than 10 years ago to help promote craft beer in Toronto, created the GTA's as a way to recognize the best craft beer achievements in Ontario. Beer lovers from across the province are encouraged to visit the Golden Tap website ( to place their votes on the following categories:

Best craft brewery in Ontario
Best cask-conditioned brewery in Ontario
Best pub in Ontario for draught beer selection
Best pub in Ontario for bottled beer selection
Best pub in Ontario for cask-conditioned ale
Best brewpub or tied house in Ontario
Best regularly-produced craft beer in Ontario
Best seasonal or specialty craft beer in Ontario
Best cask-conditioned ale in Ontario

“The Golden Tap Awards have become one of the leading craft beer awards events in Ontario,” says Enright. “Our province has a very dynamic beer scene that has been expanding and evolving over the past number of years. I’m confident that this year’s event will continue to build upon our previous ceremonies while honouring the best in beer that Ontario has to offer.”

The awards will be handed out on August 29th at a reception to be held at Toronto's beerbistro, who have accommodated the awards celebration for the past four years. All draught lines will be turned over to Ontario breweries for the night and bottle stations will be set up around the perimeter of the building.
