Just in time for summer, Destination Toronto has unveiled the Toronto Brew Pass, a new offering that provides beer enthusiasts with one-day, three-day, and seven-day options to explore 23 unique craft breweries across Downtown, Midtown, West End, East End, Don Valley, and Etobicoke. This pass allows for up to four tastings per day, with options ranging from tasting flights to single pours, depending on the brewery.

Andrew Weir, CEO & President at Destination Toronto, highlighted the city’s vibrant beer culture: “Almost every neighbourhood in Toronto boasts a brewery, each with its own unique brews and stories that truly bring the city to life. The Toronto Brew Pass offers both visitors and locals a chance to experience these diverse flavors and innovations while exploring the dynamic and lively neighbourhoods of Toronto.”
