What to Expect
Learn about the city of Toronto through its long history of beer on this unique tour. Since the early 1800's when Toronto was known as York, to the modern metropolis it is today, the citizens of this city have used beer for refreshment and merrymaking.

Walk through the streets of old Toronto and learn about Canadian beer. The focus will be on beer made in Toronto and regional craft brews. Hear anecdotes about the role beer played though the decades in helping Torontonians cope with cholera, fire, war, depression, rebellion, muddy streets, and general Victorian stuffiness.

Visit a few unique and historic pubs which cover the early history of Toronto and give a new perspective on the city. Afterwards, stop by Saint Lawrence Market and finish up in the Distillery District; an old industrial park and whiskey factory converted into a hub of art, culture, and cafes.
