What To Expect
Engaging stories, laughs, and lager - what a great way to spend an afternoon! On this tour, stops will be made at three pubs each with their own character and selection of beer to try, as well as the historically delicious St. Lawrence Market to sample some Canadian delicacies.
Throughout its history, from the early 1800s, 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. This tour is a historic walk through the streets of the old Toronto and an introduction to Canadian beer, with a focus on beer made in Toronto and regional craft brews. Learn what role beer played though the decades in helping Torontonians cope with cholera, fire, war, depression, rebellion, muddy streets, and general Victorian stuffiness. This tour will visit a few unique and historical pubs, cover the early history of Toronto, and give visitors a new perspective on the city. A stop will be made at the historic St Lawrence Market, and finish in the Distillery District - an old industrial park and whiskey factory converted into a hub of art, culture and cafes.
