Breweries

BECAUSE BEER brings together the best of Southern Ontario’s craft breweries (and then some). In 2014, more than 25 craft beer and cider vendors joined us at beautiful Pier 4 Park. In 2015,  30 craft beer and cider vendors were part of the two-day waterfront celebration. Last year, festival attendees sampled from 32 of the best that the craft beer and cider sector has to offer.

The 2017 edition of the celebrated craft beer festival will pair great homegrown talent with outstanding brewers from across the province. In all, BECAUSE BEER festival-goers will be able to sample more than three dozen craft brewers and cideries from across Ontario and beyond!
