Toronto’s new addition to the brewery scene, Big Rock, is having a summer open house celebration this Saturday.
You can go along to the brewery’s location on The Queensway in Etobicoke in west Toronto, and enjoy a day full of brewery tours, beer tasting, snacks, and more – for free.
Yes, we’re serious.
The brewery is headquartered in Calgary and it also has a location in Vancouver as well as here in Toronto. Skilled brewmasters here have been making all-natural, premium beer for more than 30 years, so it’s a place that you need to visit at least once.
By hitting up the brewery’s awesome open house event, you’ll get to explore the family of incredible ales and lagers, and seasonal beers that are brewed there.
And when you join a free tour of Big Rock Brewery in Etobicoke, you’ll get to see the level of passion that goes into the beer that’s brewed here.
Ontario brewmaster, Connor K. Patrick will be on hand to tour you through his brewery and show off some of his newest brews. You’ll get to see the massive production facility, plus get a behind the scenes look into processes from the top of a barley bin to the bottom of a pint glass. That’s right. And this means you’ll get to see everything from the ingredients used, to the brewing and fermentation stages, followed by the packaging.
So even if you’re a total craft beer nerd or a complete novice, you’ll find out some interesting facts along the way.
The best part? You don’t have to call it a day after the tour as you’ll be taken to a Big Rock tasting session where you’ll get to try the latest and greatest brews on tap. The signature series alone includes 10 different brews so you’ll have a lot to choose from.
Oh, there also arcade games and free popcorn for you to munch on when you’re finished.
You must be 18 years or older to attend this awesome free brewery open house and bring government photo ID along with you. It’s advised that you wear closed-toe, flat shoes as opposed to high heels or sandals for the tour.
Due to the nature of Big Rock Brewery’s production facilities, the tours offered here are not suitable for those with mobility restrictions.
