What better way is there to welcome winter's recent arrival in Toronto than with a beer in hand at an outdoor Nordic festival?
The Junction Triangle-area brewery is celebrating their new "quietly herbaceous" and mildly sweet Nordic Lager, which is a collaboration with Jacobsen, Carlsberg's specialty beer line from Copenhagen, Denmark.
The brews will be flowing, along with warm Lingonberry drinks. Music will be provided by alternative Icelandic-Canadian musician Lindy Vopnfjörð, DJ BJöRN, and the Liam Kearny Show.
The market will offer beer-infused baked goods and jams, plant-based skin care, and more from cool local brands like Pom Knitwear, Lou-Lou's Flower Truck, Taran Marlow Jewellery, Mind Your Bees Wraps, Malty and Hoppy Delicacy, and Three Inches High.
You can also take part in a slew of Scandinavian crafts and games. The first 150 people who show up to the all-ages event will also stay extra warm with a free Jacobsen x Henderson Nordic Lager toque.
The festival kicks off at 11 a.m. on Sunday and runs until 7 p.m. at Henderson Brewing, 128A Sterling Rd.
