Summertime in Toronto means that there's never a shortage of beer-themed events in the province. We've rounded up some of the big ones that you might want to keep on your radar.
Not your typical event, but every second week, the founder of Love on Beer will be hosting an interative educational craft beer session at Queen West's Tequila Bookworm. Over the course of three hours you learn about
everything from Ontario beer history, proper pouring, to using beer to cook.

A popular event, this time around the Brewery's backyard returns on Canada day for a special event that features seven local breweries and food vendors. So far the participating breweries are; Great Lakes Brewery, Nickel Brook, Left Field and Oast House. The treats will be provided by Kanga meat pies and sugar pie honey bunch. The event this year will take place at Koerner Gardens and Holcim Gallery areas of the Evergreen Brick Works. The event is free admission and is all-ages.
Nearly every corner of the province has some plans for a beer themed festival. We don't know too much about the upcoming Niagara show yet, except that its a few weeks away. This beer fest will take place in downtown Niagara Falls and will set up craft breweries next to food trucks.
July 12 and 13
The annual Savour Stratford festival has been moved to July, and as part of the weekend long programming there's a beer event worth checking out. Chef Bruce Woods (formerly of Woods restaurant) will be teaming up with Beau's brewry to create an organic locally sourced paired menu.
As expected, the craft beer festival at Hart House sold out in record time, but you might want to keep an eye out for tickets you can win, or score online. A large number of breweries will be set up shop in the Quad, including some local cider producers.
