Steam Whistle Oktoberfest Pre-Tour Experience & #SWoktoberfest Details

September 15, 2011 3 comments

This isn’t the first time I have talked about how much fun can come my way being a blogger and this is definitely one of those times. I found out the other day about this awesome event happening this weekend right here in Toronto – Oktoberfest at the Steam Whistle Brewery! Here is the poster taken directly from the Steam Whistle site where they have an event page, but don’t worry I am going to get into more detail below.

I met with Greg Taylor, the co-founder of Steam Whistle and was given a tour by his wife Sybil and they are both amazingly nice people. They also love to party and have a warm relationship with their staff treating them almost like a huge family…in fact, the guy on the right with the hat on in the promotional graphic for Steam Whistle Oktoberfest below is Greg Taylor! There is a man who clearly likes his beer! No models or random dudes for Steam Whistle, the founder of the company is in their pics! (Although maybe next year you guys can include a German bar maid or 3 on the poster? No offense Greg.) The other guy in the picture is Josh Hillinger, the Steam Whistle retail manager.

The Steam Whistle Brewery is located at 255 Bremner Blvd in Toronto (Google Maps link) which is right near the Rogers Centre (aka SkyDome) and a couple minutes walk from Union Station. (The walk is all indoors, even though it is supposed to 18 degrees Celsius and sunny on Saturday according to the Weather Network http://www.theweathernetwork.com/weather/CAON0696). Steam Whistle will also, I am told, going to have SHUTTLE SERVICE from Union Station right to the brewery in the Steam Whistle Party Bus.

The event starts at 3pm and finishes at 11pm so you will have ample time to catch the subway – or even go out to your next location as the city’s Saturday night really warms up. Read more…
