The Toronto Winter Brewfest isn’t just for beer tasting. Great drinks call for equally great food. It is only right. Word on the street is that some of Toronto’s best food trucks will be joining the Brewfest and offering up gourmet bites to complement the awesome beers available on site.

And really, if you’re going to have great food and great drinks, you really should also have great music. On Friday, February 19, Tom Wrecks will be spinning from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and at 9:00pm, TechTwelve takes over and provides cool tunes until 1:00am. On Saturday, February 20, Grump plays from 5:00pm until 9:00pm, followed by Conor Cutz from 9:00pm until 1:00am.
