About The Temperance Movement:

Hailing from London and Glasgow, The Temperance Movement are a five-piece band featuring front man Phil Campbell, bassist Nick Fyffe, guitarists Paul Sayer and Matt White, and drummer Damon Wilson. Prior to forming the band, the members each played and performed with prominent acts including Deep Purple, Jamiroquai, Ray Davies, The Waterboys, Jack Bruce and even James Brown.

 

When the friends got together for a jam in 2011, everything they’d experienced as sidemen and session men coalesced, and The Temperance Movement was born. 2012’s five-track Pride EP introduced them to the world, and their debut studio album, 2014’s The Temperance Movement announced the arrival of a major rock band. White Bear is their giant step forward.

About Toronto’s Festival of Beer:

10 – What Do You Need to Bring?

Valid photo ID – This is a 19+ event (a photocopy of ID does not count)

Your Ticket. (Best to print it out and bring with you, unless you ordered a mobile ticket)

-Sunblock

-Sunglasses

-Hat

-Comfortable Shoes

-Cash

-TTC tokens

-Mobile phone – to take selfies, call a cab or Ubes – Please enjoy responsibly, don’t drink and drive.

-Raincoat (check the weather before you leave home)

 

9 – What Can’t You Bring With You?

-Pets (We love them, but they can’t come with you)

-Children (We love them too, but they can’t come with you)

-Opened water

-Food

-Chairs

-Coolers

-Large video cameras

-Selfie Sticks (seriously, are these things still a ‘thing’? lol)

-Cameras, other than for personal use

-Water guns

-Your own glassware/bottles.

-Illegal Substances (Weed, ganja, green, doobs, doobies, reefer, trees or any other type of drug)

 

8 – Think Ca$h

We appreciate plastic just as much as the next person, but cash is king at the Festival. We have teams walking around that will be selling tokens and they’ll only accept cash. We’re not saying empty your bank account, but be prepared if you want to move around quickly.  Select Token Booths do accept Credit Card Payments, but we always reco cash for getting ‘er done quickly.

 

7 – Tokens

Tokens are the onsite currency. 1 token = $1. Most samples onsite are 1 token for a 4oz pour. Some brewers charge more: imports and premium brands.

 

6 – Your Backpack Will be Searched

We’ll be using metal detector wands and searching backpacks at the gate – it’s not that we don’t trust you, it’s just how it goes! You’ve all been to events before and witnessed someone giving security a hard time over searching their belongings. The reason we do it is not because you’re a criminal, but because we want everyone to be safe and have a great time.

 

5 – Don’t Drink & Drive

Don’t drive! It’s a Beer Festival and chances are you’ll be enjoying some beverages. Not only do we not want you to drink and drive, but it’s going to be a challenge maneuvering your way around the city with large events going on.  Please enjoy the convenience of the TTC or a cab or an Ubes. Yeah, we said Ubes.

4 – Great Beer is Great Beer

Check your beer snobbery at the door. Try something new, something crazy or maybe something you can’t pronounce. Let us open your eyes to a whole new world of beer. *Starts singing A Whole New World from Aladdin*. Seriously, there are over 333 beautiful brews to sample, including 28 brews as part of Sample Sweden. No excuses for not trying something new, but don’t forget about your old favourites!

 

3 – Bring Your Appetite

The Chefs and food purveyors we have this year are second to none. See the entire Club House La Grille Grilling Tent  line-up. Explore the variety of food options and take lots of eating breaks. You’ll get to see local Chefs you already know and love, and meet a couple new ones from Sweden too! See the full schedule HERE.

 

2 – New Entrance & Parking

We’ve moved the front entrance to the Better Living Centre. All Gates (A, B, C) will go through the front entrance of the BLC. This is just a few steps away from where the entrance has been for the past number of years, so it’s not a dramatic change – just wanted to give everyone the heads up. As for parking… we do not have designated parking for the festival. We recommend finding Pay Parking in Liberty Village or just avoiding driving altogether, if that’s an option for you. For real tho, why are you driving to a beer festival?

 

1 – Drink Water & Wear Sunblock

Seriously, stay hydrated. We have water stations all over the place, plus each booth has free bottled water. All you have to do is ask for it. And you can also take your commemorative mug (which you get when you arrive), rinse it out and fill it up at a water station. And don’t forget to wear sunblock. This is vital. Sunblock and water are soooooooo key!!

BONUS: #BeerLove

We can’t wait to host you this weekend, let’s make it a great one!  PS: Add #BeerLove to your pics on Instagram and Twitter and they could show up in the photo wall.
