Today marks the launch of the 2nd annual Toronto Beer Week.  This 9-day event crosses the city of Toronto all in the celebration of great beer.  Over 50 bars, breweries, brewpubs and importers are official participants in TBW and the events across the city are going to bring out everyone’s inner beer geek.

The heart of Toronto Beer Week are the events across the city, and they are incredible. Everything from beer dinners, special tasting, pub crawls, tap takeovers – there’s something for everyone. From the experienced beer drinker to someone looking to try new things, there’s going to be an event for you at TBW.  And to top it off, various establishments have extended liquor licenses to serve until 4am!

TBW officially launches today at 12pm today at the Amsterdam Brewery (21 Bathurst Street) with a tapping of the first cask of the week.  Everyone is welcome to attend and get a head start on what is going to be a great week.

Most official participants will have the TBW Passport available (free!) which has a map listing all the participants in the city.  You can stay on top of events by checking in on TBW’s event page (sortable by day) and following on Twitter.  Enjoy the week!
