We hear it every year. ‘The food at your event is amazing’. The feedback we get about the food is vital because we know how important it is to pair our vast selection of beer offerings with great food. In fact, the President of Toronto’s Festival of Beer (his name is Les) is a serious foodie. He’s always talking about new restaurants, great chefs, and unique dining experiences. Seriously, he is always talking about it. (like maybe even a little too much, but he is the president so we go along with it) *Remember to get the intern to delete this line later*
The food purveyors we bring to our event and the chefs we have in the Club House La Grille Grilling Tent are all hand selected by us and our buddy Afrim from The Cheese Boutique. So here it is… The Top 5 Things To Know About The Food At TFOB
