Some of the many happenings common to the Niagara region are the scores of festivals that take place throughout the year. From peaches and ribs to wine and music, Niagara’s festivals alone make the place a standout destination. Here is one such festival — the Niagara Craft Beer Festival — and some of what you can expect to find if you get to attend.
Don’t separate your love of beer from your love of waterfalls. Head to Niagara over August 22 and 23, and indulge in both at the Niagara Craft Beer Festival.
If you’ve ever wanted to experience what Canadian craft brews taste like, few opportunities exist like the one at the Niagara Craft Beer Festival. Flagship beers and specialty beers will all be on hand and on tap for a beer tour of Ontario that would take you weeks to accomplish on your own as more than 20 breweries will be pouring their brews — many of which are fresh off wins at the Canadian Brewing Awards this past June.
The only way to keep drinking great beer is to keep your belly full of great food, and the festival will have some of the area’s best food available. Food trucks from a number of different area restaurants will be onsite so you can enjoy everything from the quintessential Canadian dish — poutine — from Smoke’s poutinerie to gourmet and locally sourced fare from el Gastronomo Vagabundo. You can also get your favorite bar food from Iggy’s Pub and Grub, and there are other options as well.
