Now that the holidays are over, January can seem like a ‘blah’ month in comparison to December. Torontonians, however, have the Roundhouse Winter Craft Beer Festival to look forward to! Taking place in Toronto on January 31, 2015, the festival will transform Roundhouse Park into a winter party for craft beer lovers and food truck fans. Be one of the first 500 people at the door and receive a 2015 Roundhouse Winter Fest toque. What could be more Canadian than that?
