Event: North on Tap Craft Beer Festival
Date: July 14, 2018
It was indeed a stellar event, with over 1800 people taking part in our sold-out event. The North on Tap Committee was totally blown away by the phenomenal success of the day. Everything ran smoothly and the weather was perfect…nice and hot so perfect beer-drinking weather, with a little bit of afternoon rain to cool folks off.
What really spoke to the success of the event was the comments by the Breweries that were in attendance, who thanked us and said that this is by far, one of the best, well organize beer festivals they’ve attended…and these folks – from Montreal and all throughout Ontario – do this for a living so that certainly warms our heart. And even more importantly, they’ve all agreed, to come back next year! There were 69 different beers and spirits for people to try and so there really was something for everyone.
As for food, our theme this year was “upscale BBQ” and the Festival partnered up once again with the Northern Ontario Farm Innovation Alliance (NOFIA) and regional restaurateurs to highlight local products from our area.
We introduced online text voting this year, and were pleased to announce that the Tapper’s Choice Award for the most popular brewery went to Full Beard Brewing Co. (Timmins) and the Favourite Food Vendor award went to Zante’s Bar & Grill.
