Halifax Seaport Beer Festival - Ontario Representation

There will be eleven Ontario Craft Brewers participating in this years Halifax Seaport Beer Festival taking place on August 8, 2009.

Mill Street Brewery
Great Lakes Brewing
Trafalgar Brewery
Neustadt Brewery
Black Oak Brewing
Steelback Brewery
Wellington County Brewery
Muskoka Cottage Brewery
Hockley Valley Brewing
Grand River Brewing
Railway City Brewery

This will be the first time that many Nova Scotians will get the chance to try many of these beers for the first time, and its great to see so many Ontario breweries taking part in a festival outside our provincial border again (Mondial).

"We're pretty stoked to have so many of the fine Ontario breweries coming out east to take part in this event," stated Brian Titus, owner of Garrison Brewing and co-founder of the festival. Titus and Bruce Mansour (other founder) wanted to add another element to the festival, growing it a little and adding Ontario breweries seemed like a good fit. "Mill Street will be having their own booth because they already have shelve space here in Nova Scotia, but the rest of the breweries will all be together in the OCB pavillion, showcasing their products."

There will also be a good number of Nova Scotia beers available and some terrific breweries from Maine (Allagash!) will also be attending with their beers as they have for the last two years.

Tickets can be purchased at many NSLC shops throughout Nova Scotia, at the Garrison Brewery, or at Bishop's Cellar for $35, or you can show up at the festival and pay $40. The festival will be broken up into two sessions: Session #1 takes place between 2-5pm and Session #2 from 7-10pm.
