If you have not noticed, it’s been a while…but I’m back! Just in time for the plethora of beer and festivities that begin to fill the calendar as the temperature rises.
Lets take a look at some of the bigger events coming up in June:
Montreal Mondial de la Bière 2012 June 6-10
2012 Barrie Beer Fest June 15 – 16
Ontario Craft Brew Week June 17 – 23
Mondial de la Bière is most definitely for the serious beer patron: Over 600 beers from around the world, with over 100,000 attendees at last years festival. Be warned…this is Canada’s largest beer festival in a metropolitan city of 3.5 Million people…during the Montreal Grand Prix week…and students rioting. As the Boy Scouts say: BE PREPARED.
This is the first year for the Barrie Beer Fest, sporting a gathering of Ontario Craft Brewers, food, and entertainment.
Ontario Craft Beer Week kicks off on Fathers Day weekend. There are events happening pretty much everywhere…check their listings to find something in your neighbourhood.
Session 99 caps off the Ontario Craft Beer Week with a plethora of food, over 100 different beers, and entertainment all in one convenient ticket price. This is my “must go” event in June if I cannot make it to anything else.
This is just a glance at what’s going on. Do yourself a favour and head over to The Bar Towel and check out the events calendar. It is nicely organized and gives you everything you need to keep yourself occupied this summer.
Hope to see you around!
