This 4-hour walking beer tour begins outside the Hockey Hall of Fame on Yonge Street. While strolling through the streets of Old Town Toronto, learn how beer played a role in the city’s past while visiting three classic Toronto pubs.

Beer has been a constant throughout Toronto’s history, helping soothe a city with a variety of problems — fire, war, depression, cholera, rebellion and repression. Listen to the many stories of years gone by while taste testing some of the best local brews.

Visit three unique and beloved Toronto pubs, including the popular, award-winning Mill Street Brewery. Discover seasonal and local brews at each, complete with expert recommendations from the tour guide.

This internationally acclaimed, pedestrian-only village features more than 70 ground-floor cultural and retail establishments in the restored red brick, Victorian-era buildings of the Gooderham and Worts whiskey distillery. Gooderham and Worts was once the largest distiller of alcoholic beverages in Canada.

Although the tour was just us and the guide we had a great time. The tour did not include the cost of the beer at the first two pubs, but the third pub 's sampling was paid for by the guide. He was quite nice, knowledgeable and fun! I would definitely recommend this tour if you like sampling craft beer.Awesome fun!

I found the tour online prior to a one day visit in Toronto. History AND beer; what's not to like? The tour had everything I could ask for. Jason was very well educated in the local history as well as the beers we sampled. I got a lot of "off the track" history bits that where both amusing and surprising. I feel I learnt a lot a'boat Toronto in my short time. Thanks again Jason, for a fab afternoon!
