Taking place again this year at Toronto’s Evergreen Brickworks complex, the 10th annual edition of Cask Days will be happening on Friday October 24th to Sunday October 26th, with one advance ticket session on Friday and two on Saturday, and a “Last Call for Cask” session on Sunday. More than 300 cask ales are planned to be available from over 150 breweries across Canada and the UK, as well as a special International Spotlight selection from California.
Regular tickets to each session are $35 – or $100 for a full weekend pass – and include admission to the festival, tasting glass, four drink/food tokens, entertainment and shuttle bus from Broadview subway station. Additional tokens can be purchased on site for $2.50 each, with most beers available in a 5 ounce serving per token.
There are several premium/VIP ticket options as well, including a $20 Brewer’s Brunch event at barVolo on Saturday morning; a $65 Guided Tasting option for the Saturday afternoon session that includes early admission, extra tokens, and a guided tour of the festival’s best beers by founder Ralph Morana; and a $45 early access option for all Friday and Saturday sessions.
For the Sunday session, anyone who attended a previous session and comes back with their tasting glass can enter for $5 and help finish off any remaining beers from 12:00 noon to 6:00 PM.
