Hometown Tourist: Cask Days 2013


Cask Days, a festival focusing on cask-conditioned unfiltered, unpasteurized craft beers, celebrated its 9th anniversary at the Evergreen Brick Works on October 19th and 20th.  

J and I attended last year's festival and had such a great time that we decided to attend again this year. We were also joined by our friend Ryan, a bartender at the Drake Hotel with a serious love and knowledge of beers and cocktails. 

Once again this year's festival focused on Canadian microbreweries, with 200+ craft beers to choose from. The 2013 edition of Cask Days also featured 25-30 cask-conditioned ales from microbreweries in the United Kingdom and tasty snacks from local Toronto restaurants Bar Isabel, Parts and Labour, Cieli Cottage and Hogtown Charcuterie

Despite the frigid temperatures and rain, Cask Days session 2 was busy but still extremely well organized and fun. The crowds were kept entertained by local DJ's who pumped out ear pleasing tunes and eye-catching art by outstanding artists like Kellen Hatanaka.

Here's the list of some of our favourite brews:
  • Boxing Rock Brewing Co. Wet Willie Harvest Ale
  • Bellwoods Brewery Hellwoods Imperial Stout
  • Great Lakes Brewery Harry Porter Bourbon Barrel-Aged Porter with Vanilla
  • Liberty Village Brewing Co. Gummi Bear Pale Ale
  • Indie Alehouse Pumpkin Abbey Belgian Pumpkin Ale
  • Parallel 49 Brewing Co. Ugly Sweater Milk Stout 
  • Howe Sound Brewing Rumpkineater Imperial Pumpkin Ale (infused with spice rum)
  • Magnotta Brewery Valencia Brown Ale (Cinnamon & Orange)
