Cass & Troy’s 2nd Annual Toronto Pub Crawl
Join Cass and Troy in their East vs. West showdown
3 East End Pubs – 3 West End Pubs – Two Groups Meet In The Middle For A Showdown
Join Cass Enright and Troy Burtch on Thursday June 23rd for their 2nd annual Toronto Pub Crawl during Ontario Craft Beer Week 2.0 hosted by the Ontario Craft Brewers (OCB).
Enright, the founder of The Bar Towel, The Brewery Market and the Golden Tap Awards, and Burtch, Director of Sales and Marketing with TAPS The Beer Magazine, creator/publisher of the Great Canadian Beer Blog and co-founder of Toronto Beer Week (TBW), will be leading two groups of passionate craft beer drinkers on two fun and distinct pub crawls through the East and West ends of the city, before meeting head to head in the middle at Victory Café in Mirvish Village to determine which end of the city is better for craft beer drinkers.
Enright will lead the West end tour, stopping at Bryden’s, Whelan’s Gate Irish Pub and Ciro’s. Bryden’s will be featuring “Best of the West” beers from popular west end breweries like Great Lakes and Black Oak, where double IPAs and unique one-offs will be available.
Burtch will lead the East end tour, where crawlers will prop up the bar at Taps & Tales, The Only Café and Dora Keogh’s. Muskoka Cottage Brewery will be on site at The Only Café with their Mad Tom IPA and Summer Weiss and there will also be BBQ food available (separate from pub crawl). There will also be real ale pouring at Dora Keogh’s.
Every stop along each crawl will feature a Cheers! led by both men who will address the crowd with a story or two about their experience working and dealing in the Ontario craft beer industry. There will also be numerous prizes handed out along the way including: subscriptions to TAPS The Beer Magazine, bottle openers, t-shirts, OCB glassware, Brewery Market jars, gift certificates and more.
