TORONTO, ON – Tickets for the 2018 edition of Toronto’s Cask Days festival are now available for online purchase.
Taking place on Friday October 19th to Sunday October 21st at the Evergreen Brickworks, the 14th annual edition of Cask Days will feature five sessions offering attendees more than 400 cask beers and ciders from across Canada and the United States.
General admission tickets for Friday and Saturday sessions are $50, and include a tasting glass and five drink/food tokens. Additional tokens can be purchased on site for $2.50 each, with most beers available in a 5 ounce serving per token, and some specialty beers costing 2 tokens per serving.

New this year is a Brewers Gathering session on Friday morning, featuring educational seminars and early access to the afternoon session, and a Saturday morning Real Talk panel with a group of local beer and cask experts discussing the history and evolution of cask ale in Ontario.
Sunday afternoon will once again feature the Volo Beer Garden, a family friendly session that will offer exclusive draught beers as well as any cask beers and ciders left over from the main festival. Admission is $10, with an additional $5 to purchase a tasting glass for those who don’t bring one from an earlier session.
