Every year our feature country pavilion gets people talking. Last year, the unique brews of Sweden. Two years ago, the fine ales from Ireland. This year – being Canada’s 150th birthday – we are thrilled to share some highlights with you, to whet your appetite…
Here are 5 very specific reasons to get amped up for The #Canada150 Pavilion:
1 – Special Collabo: Creemore Springs is giving us their special collaboration with Sapsucker Water the Maple Marzen brewed on the batch system. This is actually debuting at the TFOB and will only be available at Batch and special locations in limited quantities after TFOB.
2 – Oh Brother Where Art Thou: Blood Brothers Brewing won best fruit beer at the 2017 Canadian Brewing Awards and will be providing their seasonal blend of Paradise Lost featuring mango, guava, yuzu and sauvignon blanc grape juice. Doesn’t this sound like it will hit the spot on a warm summer day?
3 – First Timers: 4 of our breweries from the East have never been available in Ontario before. This is your chance to sample tasty brews without all that travel! (Although we encourage you to see our great nation some time in the future) Blindman Brewing Co from Lacombe, Alberta is doing some really innovative things and has never been available in Ontario before. Another first timer.
4 – Best Of The Best: Napanee Brewing Company won Newcomer of the Year at the 2017 Ontario Brewing Awards. This means, out of all the beer judging, tasting and scoring… they reigned supreme. Not too shabby.
5 – Let There Be Food: Food selections representing the regions are from Matty’s Seafood (East Coast & QC) and Old School (West Coast & On).
