Rochester Real Beer Week at The Old Toad

Sierra Nevada Tap Takeover 16th June. 5pm.
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co have consistently been pushing the boundaries in the craft beer world for 35 years. At the Toad we have been refining our own craft for 25 years.
We feel like Sierra Nevada share the same passion for the craft beer industry to us, and want to celebrate reaching our Silver Jubilee by collaborating with someone with a similar philosophy.
We intend on having a full tap takeover with 15 drafts and 4 casks. We will release what beers are going to be pouring nearer the date!

Old Toad Cask Festival. June 19th and 20th.
The cask fest returns for its 4th year!
We have searched far and wide for the best cask ales available to us, and once again, spared no expense and requested the best beers available to be filled in our casks.
We specifically look for beers that have never been poured in Rochester in an attempt to improve on the lineup every year, and offer a unique way for brewers
and breweries to experiment and exhibit their best brews without committing to alarge batch brew.
We are working on finalizing the lineup. Once we get closer to the date we will
release more information regarding ticket sales. Watch this space!!
