Thanks For The #BeerLove… See You Next Year!

TFOB_Thankyou_Web

TFOB 2018 is in the books.

Here are some takeaways from the event that was:

1) #TFOB2018 Got Pretty Funky! Listen friends… We knew Sour Beer was the hot topic going in to this year, but we didn’t realize how funky things were going to actually get. Our TFOB Spotlight was bumping all weekend long with all your favourite hits. At one point, if you looked inside it was a raging dance party. So, cheers to keeping things funky and loving sour beer!

2) Get In Ma Belly! The food this year was outstanding! We had so many options to choose from, including fried chicken to pay respect to Luda’s Chicken & Beer album. We had some new vendors join us as well like ONO Pokè and The Jerk Bros, while some vendors returned from previous years like Fidel Gastros and Ted’s World Famous BBQ. Basically, it was impossible for 

3) Toronto Stands By Its Neighbours! We launched a special TorontoStrong ticket offer last week for our Thursday Night show. This ticket was valued at $25 + HST and 100% of the proceeds are being donated back to the families affected by the Danforth Shooting Tragedy. We managed to raise $10,000 with this ticket in the 24 hours it was on sale and to make this story even better, Broken Social Scene agreed to donate an additional $5,000 to the cause as well. We are reaching out to our brewery friends and beer family for additional support for the fund. Torontoians stand strong in times of need.

4) The New Brews On The Block Are Amazing! We had 12 brewers set up at #TFOB2018 for the very first time in our New Brews, presented by TekSavvy pavilion and they were a huge hit. From Midtown Brewery, to OverHop, to even Glutenberg, these brewers set the bar for having some incredible products and you knew exactly why when you spoke with them. They all are so passionate when they talk about their product so congrats to them on making this year’s festival even better than it already was. 

5) Join The CLUB! This was the second year we offered Club TFOB experience and you proved to us once again that you appreciate the luxury experience. Chef Craig Harding of Campagnolo, La Palma, and Constantine displayed his amazing culinary skills, alongside full-sized brew samples, wine and more. 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!

6) Let There Be Music! TFOB Thursday features the likes of some pretty rad Canadian Bands. The Darcys, The Rural Alberta Advantage and Broken Social Scene put a whole new spin on the music component at TFOB and based on your feedback – you were totally in to it! Ludacris put on an electrifying performance on Friday to a sold out crown of 11,000 people. It was absolutely bonkers looking out to the crowd and seeing an ocean of beer lovers like yourself take it all in. TFOB Saturday was a great day to sing all your favourite hits because Dwayne Gretzky rocked the park. They sang everything from 70s hits, 80s hits, to some 90s favourites and even early 2000s so there was something for everyone to sing. Our personal favourite was when they sang Bohemian Rhapsody and the enter park sang in unison – what an amazing experience. Finally, TFOB Sunday brought some kick-ass rock and roll bands to the OLG Bandshell Stage which included I Mother Earth and Finger Eleven. They even joined forces at the end and sand on stage together. We also can’t forget how awesome the opening acts were too, Stuck On Planet Earth and Brothers of North did an amazing job and really put on an in your face rock-and-roll show that helped prime people for the grand finally to the weekend. 

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 2018.

Thank you for all the #BeerLove

  • Sunblock
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat
  • Bags are restricted to small purses, totes and drawstring bags only. Bag size may not exceed 14” x 11” x 5” (35cm x 28cm x 12cm), or 30 linear inches (75cm) in total, and must have no more than one singular pocket or opening.

  • TTC tokens / PRESTO card
  • Mobile phone – to take selfies, call a cab, ‘Ubes’ or Lyft – Please enjoy responsibly, don’t drink and drive.
  • Raincoat, Umbrella (check the weather before you leave home)
  • Blanket

Q: What Can’t I Bring With Me?

  • Pets (We love them, but they can’t come with you)
  • Children (We love them too, but they can’t come with you. This is a 19+ event)
  • Any type of Water Bottle – We have FREE WATER available all weekend long through our festival Quench Buggy meant strictly for drinking. You don’t need to bring that fancy water bottle!
  • Food
  • Chairs
  • Backpacks and bags with multiple pockets as well as Hydration packs are prohibited
  • Coolers

  • Illegal Substances (aka: Weed, ganja, green, doobs, doobies, reefer, trees, hash, hashish, devils lettuce, shrooms, or any other type of drug) Even if you have a card or something that says you can smoke, that does not mean you can smoke within the grounds. Our liquor license is very clear and does not allow it. There is also no ‘in-out’ privileges, so please keep that in mind.

Q: Where Is The Actual Entrance To Toronto’s Festival of Beer 2018?

The entrance to Toronto’s Festival of Beer is in front of the Better Living Centre (100 Princes’ Blvd). All Gates (A, B, C) will go through the front entrance of the BLC. (Say BLC in your best Snoop Dogg impersonation and you’re a legend) 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.

Q: – Should I Bring Cash?

Yep. We appreciate plastic just as much as the next person, but cash is king at the Festival. We have teams walking around (pictured) 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.  ATMs will be on site. Token Booths do accept Credit Card Payments, but we always reco cash for getting ‘er done quickly.

Q: How Do I Get 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. There are dedicated booths that sell tokens, along with mobile token teams. They will be easy to spot.

Q: Can I Bring A Backpack?

The quick answer is no… Bags are restricted to small purses, totes and drawstring bags only. Bag size may not exceed 14” x 11” x 5” (35cm x 28cm x 12cm), or 30 linear inches (75cm) in total, and must have no more than one singular pocket or opening. We’ll be using metal detector wands and searching all small bags, totes, and drawstring bags 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.

Q: What If I Want To Drive?

Don’t drive! It’s a Beer Festival and chances are you’ll be enjoying some beverages. Please enjoy the convenience of the TTC, a cab, an Ubes or even a Lyft. Yeah, we said Ubes. Just no drinking and driving whatsoever.  If you are the DD, here’s some parking info: 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.

Q: What Is There To Eat at TFOB 2018?

In a word… LOTS. The food purveyors we have this year are second to none. See the entire LIST! Explore them all and be sure to take lots of eating breaks. This is all part of #TasteTFOB – our commitment to providing an incredible food experience.

Q: Will There Be Water For Me To Drink?

You need to stay hydrated. We have FREE WATER available all weekend long through our festival Quench Buggy which will be there strictly for drinking. Do not bring your water bottle from home, they will be taken away. 

Q: What Happens If It Rains? Or If It’s Too Hot?

Whatever the weather, we will still be pouring. Rain or shine, the show goes on! Remember to dress for the weather and wear sunblock. Even if it is grey and cloudy, wear sunblock. This is vital. Sunblock and water are soooooooo key!! Your raincoat, rubber boats, umbrella may make your experience if it calls for rain.

Q: Do You Really have 416 Brews To Discover?

About 100 brewers from all over the world will be here. 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, At TFOB we have every type of brewer imaginable. From big to small, and, from local to international. Plus, this year we are featuring three exciting TFOB Spotlights: Women In Beer, Victoria, BC with Phillips Brewing & Malting Co., and Funk Town.

That’s it! We can’t wait to see you all this weekend at TFOB 2018.
