Winter Brewfest is coming back.

For its fourth year in a row, the two-day festival celebrating craft beers and the festive feelings they stir up will be landing in Toronto.

The festival will be held at Evergreen Brick Works this year, and it’s going to be the largest ever. Visitors will be able to taste over 150 beers, including favourites from Nickel Brook Brewing Co. from Burlington and Beau’s from Vankleek Hill.

New to the lineup this year are Common Good Brewing from Scarborough, Oast House Brewers from Niagara-on-the-Lake, À la Fût from St-Tite, and many more.

Of course, there will be some mighty good eats on site too. With all that beer tasting, you can’t risk an empty stomach.

The food trucks participating haven’t been announced yet, but the website says that they’ve chosen the city’s best.

And if you feel so inclined to slot some movement in between all the wonderful drink and food (and drink), there will be beer yoga classes running.

Not BYOB, but BYOM(at), if you will.

No experience is required, so hop on the mat and find your brew-inspired zen.

The new location also offers an outdoor activation area that includes hot ciders and Irish coffees, a cosy fire pit and an all-natural skating rink.

There are a variety of ticket options ranging from a simple tasting experience to a more complex, yoga-filled visit.

And all tickets include one eco-cup tasting glass, so you won’t be flying through disposable tasting cups. Beer for you, respect for the earth. Sounds like a solid deal.

Tickets are on sale now, with packages starting at $20.99. There will be a limited number available at the door for $28 including taxes. And keep in mind, this event is 19+.

This is one winter experience that you don’t want to miss.
