The Grid

The Ultimate Victoria Day Two-Four!

Crystal Luxmore

Torontonians are a hearty sort, breaking out the shorts and slip-ons as soon as the temperature inches into double digits. It’s understandable, especially after this winter’s relentless parade of snow, ice storms, and blackouts—hell, we’ve earned the right to ditch a couple layers and crack open a beer (or 24). Don’t know where to start? After some diligent swigging, The Grid has assembled your ultimate case. Choose between thirst-quenching watermelon wheats and rhubarb sours, all-day on-the-dock sippers like Nickel Brook’s Naughter Neighbour and Junction’s Brakeman’s Ale, and beautiful boozers like Great Lakes’ Robohop and Flying Monkeys’ El Toro Bravo. Then grab some pals, set up camp on your stoop or deck or backyard, and raise a glass to warm long weekends.
