Get ready for the 9th Annual Ontario Craft Beer Week

Toronto, Ontario – It’s time to raise a glass to the 9th annual Ontario Craft Beer Week, hosted by Ontario Craft Brewers (OCB). The association’s 90+ members, along with other independent craft brewers across the province, are holding various events and activities.

From Friday, June 8 until Sunday, June 17, 2018 (Father’s Day) join in on the festivities featuring local craft breweries in cities and towns throughout the province celebrating this year’s theme of Collective Brewing.
“Ontario’s craft beer industry strives to create an environment of collaboration and inclusiveness between all members, which is what makes this industry so special,” says Sarah Knox, Marketing Manager, Ontario Craft Brewers and chair of Ontario Craft Beer Week 2018. “Craft brewing is an art, a science and a business, so this week gives everyone a chance to celebrate everything our craft brewers offer our province.”
Ontario Craft Beer Week’s goal is to recognize our amazing local craft brewers and give consumers a chance to learn more about craft beer and the breweries in their area. This week’s events will connect Ontario residents with their local craft brewers through tours, tastings, festivals and parties. The Ontario Craft Brewers members will host events on-site in their brewery, as well as at local bars, restaurants and event venues throughout Ontario.
