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. This year, the festival will showcase another delicious sample of the best that the craft beer sector has to offer.

Additional programming details will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
