When someone mentions a beer festival it usually conjures images of summer days, not a Saturday in January…but this is no ordinary beer festival. Toronto’s NO-LO Beerfest is the first of its kind. This unique afternoon event on January 20th brings together some of the Only Café’s favourite brewers, but this time showcasing their non-alcoholic and low-alcohol selections.
Fifteen brewers have come on board for the four-hour festival, representing a line-up of craft beers ranging from .5% to 3% alcohol in a wide variety of styles. It’s a perfect opportunity for those abstaining during Dry January too! Come explore the local NO-LO options from brewers from across the city and parts beyond.

Frequently Asked Questions

can I purchase tickets in advance?
We ask that you RSVP to the event through the link provided. In order to reduce transaction fees, tickets will be sold at the door on the day of the event
WILL THERE BE ANY 0.0% BEER?
If you are strictly avoiding alcohol, please be aware that none of the participating brewers will be offering 0.0% beer. Federal & provincial regulators deem .5% alc/vol to be the designated limit for determining "non-alcoholic" beverages (versus "alcohol free").
