Toronto Rail & Ale Tour: Trains and craft beer together in a single tour experience!!

We'll start with a group lunch at BnB Bistro at the Sheraton Centre Hotel before we head over to Steam Whistle Brewery, located inside the historic John Street Roundhouse just south of the CN Tower. After a 'tutored tasting' of their unfiltered Pilsner and fresh pretzels, the group will move next door for a Walking Tour of Railway Museum grounds past CN Tower and to Union Station.

Next the tour will cross over the rails via the SKYWALK for a visit to the renovated Union Station, an architectural gem. After a brief story about this iconic train station, we will head to the CIBC UPSTAIRS Lounge featuring Mill Street Brewery to relax and "wet our whistles" while waiting for the train.

Then it will be time for a short ride on the UP Express to the new UP Express Bloor Station. From there, it will be a stroll down the Junction's "Railpath" to Toronto's newly opened Henderson's Brewery for an "Experiential Beer Tour". At Henderson's there will be a tasting at each step of the brewing process, from the water to the wort to the fermented beverage. At Henderson's guests will also be treated to a beer and artisanal cheese tasting. Then it is time to return to Bloor Station to catch the UP Express back to Union Station to end the tour.

Be sure to join your fellow attendees for a great afternoon of NETWORKING, TRAINS, and plenty of BEER!
