Cass & Troy's Outside IN Pub Crawl - Thanks For Joining Us

Happy east-enders
Last Thursday night, Cass Enright and I led two separate pub crawls through Toronto for the 2nd annual Ontario Craft Brewers Week.

The Outside IN Pub Crawl, as we coined it, had Enright leading a bunch of individuals in the west end of the city, stopping for pints at Bryden's, Whelan's Gate and Ciro's. I led a group through three east end pubs - Taps & Tales, The Only Cafe and Dora Keogh's.

Our two groups then met in the middle at Victory Cafe, where we all came together to drinks pints of Hawaiian Style Pale Ale by Spearhead Brewing Co. and various Mill Street offerings. We packed the upstairs section of the Victory and many of us stayed late into the night.

Many of the locations offered our groups discounts on pints and appetizers and provided us with exceptional service. Both Cass and myself would like to thank all the participating licensees for everything, and we encourage you all to visit them!

However, we'd both really like to thank all the people that attended both crawls. It's you guys and girls that make the crawls so much fun to organize!

If you missed this pub crawl, stay tuned for something we're planning for Toronto Beer Week. It will be one to remember!!

*unfortunately I didn't pull out my camera for pictures (just phone), so if anyone from the crawl has any to share, please post on my Facebook page (

Super upset that Mayor Rob Ford wasn't there: clearly he is duty-bound to be everything and everywhere for everyone.
