VIP Tickets to Black Creek Brews Fest

With the Black Creek Brews Fest just days away (Sept 6&7), I thought it would be a good time to give away two VIP tickets.

Some of the highlights of the event include:

  • Lunch with Stephen Beaumont - Three courses accompanied by three beers introduced by Beaumont;
  • Cheese and Beer Pairing with Julia Rogers - tastings of local cheeses with local micro beers;
  • Great Food (with suggested beer pairings) and tutored tastings with Mirella Amato;
  • Roger Mittag, the 'Professor of Beer' will lead guided walks through the village as he explains the history of beer; and
  • the Canadian Brewerianist Society will exhibit beer memorabilia.

To win your VIP ticket (good for either day) send an email to with the name of Beau's All Natural Brewing Co.'s newest beer.

Celebrate Ontario's rich brewing history and today's craft brewers in a family-friendly setting. Black Creek Brews Fest takes place this Saturday and Sunday from 11:00am to 4:30pm. There will be live music, 9 Ontario craft brewers, tutored tastings, great food, interactive educational sessions, brewing history and much much more.

Black Creek Pioneer Village is located at 1000 Murray Ross Parkway, Toronto (one block east of Jane St., south off Steeles Avenue, right next to York University). General admission to Black Creek Pioneer Village is $13 for adults, $12 for seniors and students, and $9 for children 5-14. For more information, please visit

Numerous emails have been received; however, there have been no correct answers as of yet.

Here's a hint: The beer was featured at the Golden Tap Awards which I wrote about in August.

Congratulations to Brent MacDonald of Peterborough and Andy Saito of Milton who submitted Beau's Festivale Plus as the correct answer.
