The 16th-annual festival celebrates Canada's rich brewing history and features more than 60 brewers from around the globe pouring 120+ brands of the barley-pop onsite for your tasting enjoyment. All manner of brews will be displayed, with everything from pale ales, stouts, fruit-based beers, and gluten-free gulps. Foods such as oysters, poutine, and burgers will be available for purchase to soak up the belly-dwelling brews. You can find a full list of exhibitors here.
A lineup of live music will float through the fairgrounds as patrons sample and sip the effervescent offerings. The festival blazes forth rain or shine, so bring sunblock and a poncho in preparation for the fickle weather.
Must be 19 or older. No children or pets.
