Guess they didn't get a sponsor this year. There are other means of getting there.

I have never been to Cask Days before, mostly because I can't deal with the crowds that come with Toronto food/beer festivals. Do they keep tickets limited enough that it won't feel like I spend my entire time there waiting in lines?

you rarely wait much longer than a minute or 2. the night sessions get a little packed, but you really don't wait in line for long. the last couple times we've done the sat night session because we have a fairly large group and that's what works for everyone (what the girls want) but i do pine for the old sat afternoon session days.

They better have improved shuttle service this year if they are charging. The shuttle on the Saturday at the end of the night last year was a shit show. A massive line-up of people waiting to get on a shuttle. I'm sure many that live outside the city missed the last GO Train home.

We ended up jumping in a cab...There were so many people lined up for the bus.

Depends how picky you are. I often waste time standing in line to get a specific beer while there is no line for something else.

I gather that the aim is to have Oregon featured, though I am not sure if anything is confirmed.
