Toronto Beer Week Update

Things are really starting to pick up with Toronto Beer Week. Events are starting to come in (we just posted the series of events that barVolo has planned yesterday) and we expect more and more will be pouring into our inbox in the weeks leading up to the September 20-26 week.

10,000 copies of the official TBW Passports just came off the printer and they will be available at all participating licensees very shortly. The fold up  - pocket sized passport features images and descriptions of all the participating establishments, including breweries and importers on one side, and the other side features a map of Toronto, marking all the locations where you'll be able to join in on events. The passport is free to grab and we hope that you'll want to keep your copy year round, using it as a guide to the places that support good beer in the city of Toronto.

We also received some good news the other day from Amsterdam Brewing. They have agreed to brew a 10hl batch of the winning entry for the first ever TBW Homebrew Competition. Rob Symes, a TBW Executive Committee member shared the news recently at a Board Meeting, explaining that the brewery will bottle and keg the winning submission similar to what they did with Derek Hyde's Bock recipe over a year ago. The beer won't be produced commercially until after the new year. If there wasn't much incentive to enter your beers before, well, there is now. Contact Symes at to get more information on the competition or visit our website and click on the TBW Homebrew Competition.
