Cask Days 2012 - 8th Annual Cask-Conditioned Craft Beer Festival

Toronto, ON


October has become Ontario’s annual month to celebrate cask-conditioned ale. A term for unfiltered, unpasteurized, naturally carbonated beer that undergoes a secondary fermentation in the cask (container). Once tapped, cask-ale - also referred to as “real ale”, has only a few days to be consumed at its peak; We call these days Cask Days.

The 8th year of Cask Days, the cask-conditioned craft beer festival in Toronto, Ontario will take place on Saturday, October 27th and Sunday, October 28th 2012.  This year s festivities will be hosted at a new venue, Evergreen Brickworks, a dynamic public space in the heart of Toronto's Don Valley. The festival is planning to feature cask-conditioned ales from over 50 micro-breweries across the country and will also introduce an international section showcasing casks from outside of Canada – marking the only festival of its kind in the country.

Cask Days was founded by barVolo in 2005 and has remained family run for the last eight years. The event has evolved into one of the most exciting craft beer festivals in the industry and a major contributor to the Ontario craft beer community. It has also encouraged brewers to experiment, explore diverse styles and have the opportunity to showcase their finest brews, in most cases – one off’s that are especially made for the event in cask-conditioned form. The aim this year is to give the public a unique beer festival experience that celebrates not only local craft beer but local food, art and music. Tickets are now available for purchase, please visit the event page for more information!
