Exploring old Toronto and an introduction to Canadian beer - what could be be better?!
Toronto has been through it all - fire, war, depression, cholera and rebellion. During these times, beer has been there soothing the woes of Toronto's people. Hear tales of years gone by over a craft beer on this tour that proves that beer does indeed make history better!
With a focus on craft beer brewed in Toronto and its surrounding regions, this tour is known as one of the best things to do in Toronto. During the walk, we'll discuss the role beer has played in the lives of Toronto citizens throughout history.
We begin the tour by visiting a few unique and historic pubs, all with different atmospheres, patrons, servers and beer selection. Your guide, who also happens to be a "beer geek", will be full of recommendations as they help you navigate the local craft beers you'll discover along your journey.
During the tour, the guide will indulge the group with some historical tales of early Toronto, hoping to give visitors and locals alike a new perspective on the city. We will stop at the historic St. Lawrence Market where you can admire the vendor stands selling local produce and goods. Some of the vendors will let you sample their goods - we recommend trying the mustard, once you do you'll quickly learn why this market is so popular with the locals!
We’ll end the tour in the Distillery District, an old industrial park and whiskey factory that has been converted into a hub of art, culture, and cafes. It’s a rather photogenic part of the city, so be sure your camera isn’t out of batteries before you get here!
