What Ticket Type Is For Me?


There are many avenues to experience the greatest beer festival ever created. Since we added a whole extra day to enjoy TFOB 2018, now there’s absolutely no excuses!! Since there are so many options to consider, we thought we’d break it down a bit for you…

General Admission Ticket 

The General Admission ticket is our first offering and is perfect if you prefer to weigh your options first before you decide to go all in on the beer and food sampling. It’s simple but a great way to kick start your experience at Toronto’s Festival of Beer presented by the Beer Store. – especially if you have never been to the event before. The General Admission ticket is available all four days of the festival but Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the only days that come with five (5) sampling tokens that can be used for beer, food and even souvenirs. The Thursday General Admission ticket doesn’t come with tokens so we have gone ahead and made it a cheaper ticket to reflect that different.  This ticket offers entry in to the event at the regular listed hours. 

Hoptimized Admission Ticket

The Hoptimized ticket has always been our most popular ticket at Toronto’s Festival of Beer presented by the Beer Store. This ticket adds just enough pizazz to your experience without any additional bells and whistles that you didn’t ask for. The Hoptimized ticket includes early access to the festival for an additional 1.5 hours and ten (10) sampling tokens that can be used for beer, food and even souvenirs.   

VIP Admission Ticket

The VIP experience has been around for a few years now at Toronto’s Festival of Beer presented by the Beer Store. The VIP Admission Ticket includes an express entrance and early entry in to the event, ten (10) sampling tokens that can be used for beer, food and even souvenirs, a catered meal that comes with two (2) full drinks in the VIP lounge, and access to air-conditioned washrooms. VIP are currently Sold Out for TFOB Friday and TFOB Saturday, but still available for TFOB Sunday.

Club TFOB Admission Ticket

Club TFOB is our most exclusive and newest offering at Toronto’s Festival of Beer presented by the Beer Store. This ticket includes an express entrance and early entry in to the event, access to the Club TFOB lounge that has an air-conditioned washroom and a private bar, and 15 sampling tokens for beer, food and even souvenirs. Club TFOB ticket holders will also experience incredible cuisine from a top Chef in Toronto, and access to a complimentary oyster bar in the Club TFOB lounge that is available for the first two hours of gates opening.

HERE is the full pricing grid for each ticket type. Yes, the sooner you buy, the better deal you get.  See you in July!

Thank You #BeerFam


TFOB 2017 is in the books.

Here are some takeaways from the event that was:

1) Oh Canada! Listen friends, we all know that Canadian brewers create outstanding beer, but sampling all the great beer from coast to coast takes time, effort and a whole lotta cash. That’s precisely the reason why we created the #Canada150 Pavilion. 48 brands of beer – most of which are not available in Ontario – BUT during TFOB 2017 they were here. From PEI to BC, we showcased the best – and you loved it. The feedback about the variety and selection of brews was awesome. We’re gunna take that energy and inject it to next years feature country… or countries? We’ve said too much. 

2) Get In Ma Belly! The food this year was the perfect pairing to all those brews. Did you even try the paid thai fries from Fidel Gastro’s? Or the pulled pork pie from Pie Commission? OH MY GAWD! Or those delishous Hot Bunz from Hot Bunzz Street Cuisine? GEEZ!! Or how about Lobster Mac n Cheese from Matty’s Seafood? WOWZA!! Honestly, bellies got stuffed and we will do our best to offer even more selection next year.

3) 416 Brews To Discover! Did you have a fav? You must have found something new and exciting this year. 100 brewers showcasing their hard work and efforts. We are already putting the notes together for next year to introduce more and more brewers and more tasty brews. We are always looking for brand new brewers who have never been to our event to get them in our New Brews section. Tweet us if you’ve discovered something new so we can share it withe world!

4) Join The CLUB! Club TFOB was a new offering this year. Chef Craig Harding of Campagnolo and Afrim Pristine of the Cheese Boutique displayed their culinary skills, alongside full-sized brew samples, wine and more. This was an experiment to see if this luxury style option would be something you’d want… and you said yes! The ticket also got you early access to TFOB and air conditioned VIP restrooms, snacks and more. We will be offering Club TFOB again next year, so stay tuned!

5) Let There Be Music! Method Man & Redman were legendary. The energy = unreal. The benchmark for TFOB Friday has been set. We are hard at work seeing who we can get for you next year. TFOB Saturday with Sloan was so memorable for all the right reasons. The vibe was perfect. Sloan playing the hits, brewers pouring the best and the sun shining down on us all. On TFOB Sunday, Alan Doyle brought everything that’s great about his east coast vibe to the Main Stage. It was like the perfect ending to a beautiful weekend. Soulfully leading us into Sunday evening. We promise to keep looking for artists that compliment the beer/summer vibe and can’t wait to announce next year’s line-up to you. 

All in all, a pretty epic weekend that saw great weather, countless good times and smiling facing all around. Hope you’ll join us again next year. We’ll go on sale December 1st 2017. 

Thank you #BeerFam
