Spring Sessions Happen on the May 2-4 Long Weekend in Toronto

Years ago I lost touch with my friend Mike. He had an awesome cottage in Muskoka that we crashed at every long weekend. It slept about 15 people, had a hot tub on the deck, a boat on a nice lake. Mike, I miss you man.

Every since we lost contact I’ve been trying to find a cure for my long weekend cottage needs. I can assume there are more people like me searching for that cottagey fix. That’s why we (the gang behind the legendary summer festival, Toronto’s Festival of Beer) created Spring Sessions. May Two Four Weekend, in the city.

Here are your 5 Best Bets for enjoying the Sesh’:

1) Bocce

Some reports stat that Bocce is the most played activity in the world. Thankfully

Track & Field Bar has picked up on the trend and will be at Spring Sessions to host all your bocce needs. Bocce Standards Association rules apply. (Totally just made that rules part up. Apologies to those who are actually a part of the BSA. No disrespect homies.)

2) Let There Be Fire!

Hanging around a fire pit is pretty much mandatory. It’s like Rule 1 of the cottage: “If your clothes don’t smell like camp fire, were you actually even at the cottage, bro?” There may be marshmallows. Currently seeking approval from the people who make those marshmallow decisions.

3) Giant Jenga

Picture Jenga, but bigger. Just be warned: if you decide to go ‘open toe’ with your footwear then a falling Jenga tower may be a hazard. Seriously.

4) Good Food

We hand selected and curated our favourite food purveyors and here’s a quick list of who will be there: Ted’s World Famous BBQ. Chimney Stax. Ontario Corn Roasters. Pie Commission. Oyster Boy.Mama Raty’s Meat Pies. Tiny Toms. Smoke’s Poutinerie. HERE’S a blog about all of our food choices and why they are most excellent.

5) Great Beer

Yes, there are only awesome Brewers at the ‘sesh. See the complete list HERE. Our recommendation is to take your time. Sample it, don’t just drink it. Brewers work super hard to craft each brew. This is their life work. Enjoy it… and as always, please sample responsibly.

Hope to see you on the May Long Weekend!
