TFOB Saturday

New Brews presented by TekSavvy

Newbrews-Web

Beer discovery is the most important part of Toronto’s Festival of Beer. We offer hundreds of brews to try: some you have heard of, and some maybe not. We created the New Brews presented by TekSavvy programme to do two things: 1) Allow brewers who have never been to our event the chance to feature their product to the masses. 2) Allow beer lovers the chance to discover new brews.

Make sure you check out the New Brews presented by TekSavvy on-site at TFOB 2018. There will be 12 brewers showcasing the fruits of their labour, along with free WiFi for beer lovers to share their discoveries.  We will feature each brewer leading up to TFOB 2018. And yes, the New Brews presented by TekSavvy pavilion will be on-site for all four days of TFOB.

Dwayne Gretzky To Headline TFOB Saturday

DG-BSD-1 _ Anthony Tuccitto

For the first time ever, the renowned music phenomenon known simply as Dwayne Gretzky will be headlining Toronto’s Festival of Beer (TFOB 2018), presented by the Beer Store, on Saturday, July 28, 2018. The annual summer sampling event returns to Bandshell Park, in Exhibition Place on July 26-29, 2018 with a newly added fourth day of festivities for attendees to enjoy. Dwayne Gretzky’s performance is presented by Q107 and 102.1 The Edge.

The legendary Saturday of Toronto’s Festival of Beer is a day that everyone needs to experience,” said Les Murray, President of Toronto’s Festival of Beer, “Dwayne Gretzky will bring the hit songs and the energy and we’ll bring a massive selection of brews and tasty culinary treats for fans to enjoy.

Dwayne Gretzky is a collection of Toronto musicians that delve into nostalgia, uniting fans of all ages to sing along to the greatest hits of the last 50 years and by performing with energy and fidelity. Their performance at TFOB2018 will be exactly that, as they plan to take their electrifying show to attendees; all in celebration of #BeerLove.

Tickets for TFOB2018 sell out in advance every year – so consumers are encouraged to buy early. All Early-Bird tickets have already sold out, however fans still have a chance at purchasing tickets at the remaining tier levels. For more information on what ticket tiers are still remaining, please visit: www.beerfestival.ca. Toronto’s Festival of Beer is a 19+ event.

 

Dwayne Gretzky is a live music collective celebrating the greatest songs of all time. Transcending both era and genre, this prodigiously talented group of Toronto musicians captivates audiences with a masterfully curated tour of artists from both the classic and modern pop canon – from Bowie to Beyoncé, Springsteen to Spears, The Supremes to The Strokes. With tasteful precision, chameleonic versatility and a flair for the dramatic, Dwayne Gretzky scratches our collective itch to be surprised by the familiar.

In an increasingly saturated and scattered music landscape defined by predictable playlists and individualized consumption, Dwayne’s high-energy nostalgia trips recall the serendipity of flipping through the radio dial, and the joy of coming together en masse to celebrate and sing along to the best songs ever written. Boasting 100+ straight sold-out shows in their hometown of Toronto and with venue capacities growing into the multiple-thousands, Dwayne Gretzky’s momentum is a testament to the band shattering conventions and re-defining what audiences want in a live music experience.

About Toronto’s Festival of Beer:

Toronto’s Festival of Beer, presented by the Beer Store features hundreds of brews, seriously good eats, live entertainment, and plenty of #BeerLove from July 26 to 29 at Bandshell Park, in Exhibition Place. It’s Canada’s premier celebration of the golden beverage.
