Cask Days 2014 Tickets Now On Sale!

10th Annual Cask-Conditioned Craft Beer Festival
Friday, October 24th – Sunday, October 26th, 2014
Evergreen, Brickworks (550 Bayview Ave.) 
The 10th Annual “Cask Days” Cask Conditioned Craft Beer Festival returns to Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto, Ontario for its third year and will offer more than 300 beers and ciders across 3 days with over 5000 attendees.  
The festival welcomes back breweries from across Canada, United Kingdom and has invited California to be this year’s international brewery feature. Presented in conjunction with CASK ALE LA, there will be over 30 beers available from breweries across the state, both big and small that have never been served north of the border. Participating feature breweries will be announced individually leading up to the festival starting with Stone Brewing Company from Escondido, California. 

Along side an exceptional line up of beers, Cask Days hosts a unique beer festival experience with epic eats from Toronto’s most admired chefs, raw vinyl beats and an art gallery that showcases the best in beer label design. Additional attractions include the 6th Annual IPA Challenge, a classic arcade game zone and feature artists: Troy Lovegates and Mister Sleeep
“From a small celebration for local brewers held in the rather snug confines of downtowns Bar Volo, Cask Days has evolved into one of Canada’s top beer Festivals” says Josh Rubin (Toronto Star). Since the beginning, the festival has celebrated the love for cask ale: unpasteurized, unfiltered and naturally carbonated beer that is served direct from a cask firkin. Once tapped, the beer only has a few days to be consumed at its prime. We call these days, “Cask Days”.
Tickets range from $35.00 - $65.00 and are available for purchase online Additional ticket options include: early access to each session, brewer’s brunch at Bar Volo and a guided tour with festival founder Ralph Morana. 
Session One: Friday, October 24th, 2014 (7pm – 12am)
