Hamilton Beer Festival
There will be more than 20 beers to try at the first annual Hamilton Beer Festival, so you'll need to plan ahead or practice puffing out your cheeks if you want to try them all in two days. Some come from breweries in Hamilton itself; others are rarer specimens from breweries across Ontario. But only one can be crowned Hamilton's Best Beer, and over the weekend in Gage Park, festival guests will sip and vote to name a winner.
As the competition quietly rages on, live bands will play as part of Jazz in the Park, the festival's musical component. An art show and games provide more entertainment throughout the event. Proceeds benefit several children's hospitals, as well as organizations seeking to build a new community center.
