If you’re a history buff and love beer, especially craft beer, then the Rolling Hops Beer Tour could be a perfect weekend adventure for you.
Rolling Hops Beer Tours in Toronto offers unique urban adventures, allowing guests to experience the city’s craft beer scene and its historical past.
Owners Garrett Cannella and Andy Cameron say their aim is to give their guests an entertaining experience.
“The experience we wanted to create for our guests is meant to be very social, very interactive and also very casual,” said Cannella. “Walk through the streets of Toronto and experience something you not normally do, craft beer in Toronto is a blossoming scene.”
Cannella and Cameron said the tour will go through all the beer making steps.
“On our tour, we will take you through the steps on how craft beer’s made and the types. If you know nothing about beer, our tour is a great place to start,” Cannella says. “You can know nothing or know a lot about beer, and you will still have a good time.”
Cannella and Cameron said they created this tour because of their overwhelming passion for beer and the city’s history.
“It was a combination of both of our passions,” Cameron says. “I’ve always been quite passionate about history, particularly Toronto’s. My partner Garrett has such knowledge and love for craft beer, so when Garrett approached me with the idea, I thought this was a great way to combine both our passions and to create something unique and special.”
Rolling Hops offers two different tours, a west-end tour, and an east-end tour.
The west-end tour meets outside the Lansdowne station, where it takes people to the unique breweries in the Junction Brockton Village area.
The east-end tour takes a journey through the Greenwood Coxwell neighborhood. Guests can sample several varieties that each brewery has to offer.
