TORONTO, ON – The main event is still close to a month away, but the organizers of Toronto’s Festival of Beer (TFOB) which hits Exhibition Place on July 27th-29th are getting things started early with a series of satellite events happening throughout the city in advance of the festival.
Starting tonight (July 3rd) and running through to Saturday is Cask 5, a series of five events being presented by TFOB in collaboration with Cask Days. Starting at 5:00 PM each evening, a different bar will host a session with a different brewery, each featuring 5 different cask beers. The series includes:

Sat July 7th: House Ales at Volo
A few days after Cask 5 wraps up, a series of Brewmaster’s Dinners will be kicking off, each featuring various beers paired with multiple courses of beer-friendly cuisine. And as a bonus, each dinner ticket includes admission to the sold out Saturday session at TFOB. Dinners include:
