Toronto Morris Ale, Toronto, ON.
This is one of the great urban Ales in North America and is attended by a broad spectrum of wonderful teams. This is always a lot of fun for us.

Casa Loma on Saturday morning and Dufferin Park on Sunday afternoon are generally best bets to see us, since all the teams will be together performing. Hosted by Green Fiddle Morris.
