This a tourist attraction for those who praise the one thing that makes baseball interesting: beer. The Steam Whistle Brewery, despite all of the old-timey trucks, is less than ten years old. The first bottles of Steam Whistle were produced in 2000 by a bunch of guys who had been fired when Canada's last premier microbrewery went out of business in 1998. Today Steam Whistle may not be world famous, but it is quite the hero of the Toronto bar scene and not half bad. Tourists who may be interested can take tours of the brewery (as you can in most breweries and distilleries around the world), which is conveniently located near the Rogers Centre. If you have a large event that you want to host, the Steam Whistle will open its doors and provide you with refreshments. Its an ok party room, although it does require a large event to be cost effective: I went to the opening party for the World University Debating Championships in 2001 and, with several hundred people we still didn't fill the entire place.
