English writer Guy Beringer wrote in 1895, "Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week." This piece of writing included the first written account of the term "brunch".
Although the idea may have started in Britain, North Americans quickly took liking to the hybrid meal and invented a new setting to spend quality time with family and friends. The weekend brunch was a time for them to get together a little later in the day and share a meal at a restaurant, while taking a break from the typical kitchen preparations at home.
Fast forward to the twenty-first century and the western world has invented a new meaning for the term "brunch". Every weekend, young adults flock to one of many brunch parties around noon, where they are served delicious food - with a wild twist. Instead of accompanying their meal with the standard tea or coffee, they are served resplendent champagne in a creative, high-energy atmosphere and a stunningly-designed party. What begins as an innocent daytime meal turns into something much more memorable.
At Beringer Brunch in Toronto, we aim to reinvent the term "brunch" once again. Our goal is to create a vibrant and strong community of Toronto's brightest and finest young professionals. And we want to further the cause of the champagne brunch by creating the most innovative and fun events around town.
We look forward to meeting you at the next Beringer Brunch!
