2011 Toronto Beer Week - Sept 16th-24th

Postby Bobsy » Thu Feb 10, 2011 8:49 pm

I'msure a lot of you have already noticed the fromt page, but for those of you who haven't, the 2011 dates for TBW have been announced: http://www.bartowel.com/?p=2073

Plan your holidays before or after that. 2011 is shaping up to be bigger and better than last year.

Last year's Brewdog dinner will be hard to top. I'm really looking forward to the 2011 TBW!

Here's to hoping that whatever event in Toronto that coincided with TBW in 2010 and drove hotel prices up to ridiculous amounts isn't coming back in 2011.

I hope to make it out to a couple of events this year...

I will attend some the events if I'm around. If I'm not around I'll be dead.

TBW reps will be hitting the streets over the next two weeks signing up pubs/bars and restaurants.

The Monk's Table was the first to officially sign up last night and preliminary numbers (based on emails and phone calls) suggest that we'll have many more venues participating in 2011.

If you're popping into your local, please pass along the dates and help us spread the word about 2011. The TBW team would greatly appreciate it.

That would be the Toronto film festival - and yes it's a recurring event :)

I'm volunteering, so I walk around signing up pubs and venues and restaurants and whatnot in addition to brewing some stuff for some guys.

I gotta tell you, Toronto Beer Week is going to melt your face off through the sheer intensity of its overwhelming awesomeness.

Also, you should probably start saving some money, since it ain't going to be cheap.

I've heard some pretty epic plans.

Talking of which, our homebrew contest lineup has been announced. Also sorts of good stuff up for grabs thanks to great supporters of the scene stepping up to the plate: http://torontobeerweek.com/tbw-homebrew-competition/

Rob, when will judging occur for the homebrew competition? I am debating whether or not mine will even be drinkable by the deadline.

Hi Jeremy,

First round of judging will most likely be on September 10th or 11th, so that the beers are in optimal condition. Second round will be sometime during TBW once we have some brewery judges co-ordinated. The deadline for entries is the night of the 9th.

Cheers,

Rob

Fun event @ C'est What for TBW announced.

Beer Idol

Geek or God?

With Toronto Beer Week fast approaching (September 16 to 24) we are getting cranked up with a big slate of events including a contest:

On Saturday September 17, at 10 o'clock, a panel of three locally renowned beer-soaked personalities will put six finalists through their paces on stage at C'est What to determine who is King or Queen of Toronto Beer Week.

If you think you have what it takes to be Toronto's Biggest Beer Geek please submit your bona fides by way of a picture and/or up to 200 words to George. It could be a story showing your beer sincerity, a poem, a song, a talent, or a bucket list of barley-based accomplishments: Whatever will impress the judges, can be presented to the public, and is within a bottle cap toss of the truth.

All finalists will be awarded some beer swag and the winner will get a dinner every month for a year at C'est What along with an Ontario based craft brew that they have personally selected for our line-up. Of course, the winner will get bragging rights through out Toronto Beer Week and for the following year.
