The lazy-hazy days of summer are finally about to descend upon us and what better way to welcome them than The True North Beer Festival on June 22-23 in downtown Harmony Square?! The magical combination of hops, malts, yeast and water come together to yield one of summers most refreshing beverages. Join more than 25 brewers from across the province of Ontario as they come together to offer samples of over 75 craft beers.
This 19+ event kicks off on Friday June 22 at 6 p.m. Friday evening's special event is "Beats and Ales" - Enjoy a perfect blend of three once-off Cask Ales and enjoy some "sweet beats" all night long! More information on music is scheduled to be announced soon, so be sure to check the website regularly. The festival resumes on Saturday, June 23nd at 2 p.m., and will feature a "We Got No Beach" afterparty. Enjoy live music starting at 7 p.m., lawn games, local food, and of course, beer!
Tickets are available online only, and range from $29.95 for a day pass to $49.95 for a weekend pass. If you're lucky enough to be the designated driver, fear not - entry is discounted at only $10. Beer sampling is easy; pours are 4oz and tokens are $2 each or 7 for $10. Whether you're a loveable hophead or serious connoisseur of the brew, this festival is certain to be an awesome way to pay homage to the oldest recorded recipe in the world, with the brewing process outlined on papyrus scrolls dating from 5,000 years ago. Let us ponder…. 24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? We think not.
Join us in Harmony Square for this highly anticipated event - but don't delay, tickets will sell out quickly, so make sure to purchase yours early.
