Roundhouse beerfest.. the SUMMER one, right? YES!

I've had the pleasure of going to the Summer 2012, and winter 2013 Roundhouse Craft Beer Festivals put on by the Ontario Craft Brewers right in Steamwhistle's backyard.

In two weeks, on Saturday August 9 and Sunday August 10 2014, the next in the Roundhouse beer fest series is coming back (hooray!).

You can't beat Summer day drinking, in the glorious outdoors at the Roundhouse. It will be nothing like these shots from the Winter festival:

Anyhoo, here's who I'm excited to see:

Steamwhistle - The lovely hosts. They really have the best swag a brewery can offer, eh?

Flying Monkey - If they have even a portion of the offerings they had at Beer Fest this year, I'll be a happy lady!!

Oast House Brewers - I got to try the Barn Raiser Country Ale at the Liberty Village Summer Beer Fest a couple weeks ago and I'm VERY stoked to get more. It was so fresh and flavourful, that I felt like I was on a hay ride, drinking the latest batch

Beau's - I hope they have the Tom Green Milk Stout. Mmmilk stouts

Great Lakes Brewery- I'm current obsessed with their Canuck Pale Ale

Mill Street Brewery - I'm 50/50 with the 100th meridian, so having it outside in the sun will definitely be an easy way to get on board!

Railway City - I always love seeing them at festivals. The Iron Spike is such a sessionable blonde

Lake of Bays - Just love them. There's nothing else to it.

Cameron's - I won a keg of their beer so I'm happy to re-sample the stock to decide what to get

I'm yet to try these, so it's always a treat to go to one of these events and get something brand new!

How great is it that every other weekend in the Summer there's a giant Toronto Craft Beer Fest?

(It's super great)
