Here's the good news. The McGregor Mug Run & Beer Fest is back for its fifth year of outdoor revelry and craft brew enjoyment. Here's the better news. You don't have to partake in a 5- or 10K race to enjoy its frothy pleasures. So whether you're an athlete, beer-thlete, or a happy combination of both, you're bound for a bountiful day of fun. Here's how the festival plays out.
- The Setting: Sunny Co-An Park, where a country atmosphere accentuates the homey feel of the Beer Fest, and where you'll spot Mug Runners beginning and ending their racing adventure (Mug Run entry is not available with this Groupon).
- The Brews: So far, the ever-expanding lineup includes choice selections from Walkerville Brewery, the aptly and simply named Brew, and Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery and FRANK, Windsors newest brew pub. You'll be armed with a cool mason jar mug and four beer tokens.
- The Music: Chug-a-lug to country music from Kelsi Mayne (a recent finalist in the Boots and Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase) and indie folk-rock from Years of Ernest and The Old Salts
- The Good Cause: Proceeds benefit the Epilepsy Support Centre
