“Because Beer” Craft Beer Festival
July 11th & 12th at Pier 4 Park
It is so great to see a buzz over beer making in Hamilton again. Not since Lakeport beer left the scene, have we seen so much excitement over the fantastic world of Beer. So much in fact that this year, there are 3 Beer festivals occurring in the Greater Hamilton Area – 2 in Hamilton and 1 in Burlington. Craft beer as an industry has exploded over the last few years so it is not surprising that a festival or two emerged to bring together the brewers to showcase their product and dedication to quality craft beer.
‘Because Beer’ is aimed at anyone who is interested in enjoying and discovering craft beer – from beer aficionados to the casual beer drinker or beer lover. The festival will provide a unique opportunity to sample a variety of craft beers, interact with the brewers who create the product, listen to live music and informative guest speakers, and enjoy a meal from a variety of local food trucks.
Featuring craft beer sampling from over 25 craft beer companies, a BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) -sanctioned homebrew competition, a music stage, guest speakers, and specialty food trucks.
Hamilton’s own Harlan Pepper (Friday) and the Dinner Belles (Saturday) will headline the musical entertainment. Terra Lightfoot (Friday) and Tallest Tree (Saturday) will also perform.
Festival hours are Friday July 11 from 4pm – 11pm and Saturday July 12 from 12pm – 8pm. Admission is $25 per day with a two-day pass available for $40.
