In case you didn't see the show, here's a spot Oliver Dawson did on Global TV, all about this history of brewing in Toronto and highlights of the Old Toronto Beer Tour.
Toronto Beer & Chocolate Tour
We're very excited to be adding new products to our tour selection. In addition to our all-day OLD TORONTO BEER TOUR, we wanted to find something that we could offer on a weekday, but that wouldn't require navigating midweek traffic, so we hit on the idea of Neighbourhood Walking Tours. The first to begin in June will be a walking tour of the Distillery District, called the Toronto Beer & Chocolate Tour!
Maybe you'll be the first to try our tour -- June 11th. We will run the tour Tuesdays through Fridays all summer. They'll include stops at Izumi the Ontario Spring Water Sake Brewery and Mill Street Brewery, where we'll have tours and tutored tastings. But we'll also add a delectable stop at SOMA CHOCOLATES to learn about chocolate making and enjoy a "Chocolate Shot". Life doesn't get much better than that!
The tour will be guided by Nick Aiello, our resident beer and food expert and will include a guided walkabout the historic Distillery District with its beautiful cobblestone streets, eclectic shops and galleries. Nick will entertain you with stories of prohibition and the 19th century brewing and distilling history of Toronto.
We are also excited to announce that we also have a "Sunday in the Parkdale" and the "Junction Beer & Booze Crawl" in the works.
Let us know what you think about our new walking tours. Perhaps you have a neighbourhood you'd like to propose for our next tour idea?
