Love beer but not gluten? Maybe you want something a little less bloat-y and a little more fruity?

Cider is big this year and for good reason: It’s tasty, refreshing and it epitomizes summer. This year, Toronto Cider Festival is hosting their Cottage in the City event on August 27 at Dundas Square, so you can have an end-of-summer getaway right in your own backyard.

Cideries representing this year include Pommies Cider Co., The County Cider Company, Thornbury, Shiny Apple, Spirit Tree Estate Cidery, Brickworks Ciderhouse, Ironwood Cider, Forbidden Dry Cider + SO many more. There will be cider sampling (20 vendors & more than 40 taps available), the Angry Orchard Cider Cocktail Competition, contests + giveaways, live entertainers including Stereo Flavour, a stunning visual and musical six-piece band.

Thirsty yet? Get your tix here.


We’re giving away a pair of tickets for the day session (11:30AM-4:00PM). Wanna get in on this sweet, sparkling action?
