Hart House Craft Beer Festival & Summer BBQ - July 30th

There are only two days to go until the 2nd annual Hart House Craft Beer Festival and Summer BBQ gets underway, and if you don't have tickets yet, but are planning to go, you better make the call or email today as tickets are selling out fast.

Your $35 ticket grants you access to the event, terrific bbq meats and fresh salads, samples of local Ontario beer and the opportunity to listen to some great local musicians. Held outside in the beautiful courtyard, the festival and bbq will will go ahead rain or shine.

The event, which kicks off at 7pm, was so popular in its inaugural year that many breweries ran out of beer early, leading the organizers to bring in more participants this year, hoping to avoid that problem. There will be a total of 17 Ontario breweries (and 1 from Alberta) pouring samples of their product well into the night:

Barley Days Brewery
Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company
Big Rock Brewery
Black Oak Brewing Company
Brick Brewing Company
Cameron's Brewing Company
Flying Monkeys Brewery (Formerly Robert Simpson)
Grand River Brewing
Great Lakes Brewery
Hockley Valley Brewing Company
MacLean's Ales
Mill Street Brewery
Nickel Brook Beers
Scotch Irish Brewing
Steam Whistle Brewery
Steelback Brewery
Wellington Brewery

I'll be there working in the TAPS Magazine booth all night selling subscriptions, taking questions, and showing off the latest issue. Make sure you drop by and say hi!
