Collaboration Nation is when craft breweries team up with celebrities to make unique beer for you to try at the Session Toronto Craft Beer Festival. Throughout the day people at the festival vote for their favourite collab and then the winner will have their beer listed at the LCBO later that year.
Past winners include Tom Green with Beaus All Natural brewing Company, Sam Roberts Band with Spearhead brewery & in 2015 K-OS won when he teamed up with Beaus All Natural Brewing Company.
What’s Brewin’ attended SessionTO in 2015 and we put together a small re-cap of the great day that was had.
Check out who could be the newest Collaboration Nation winner below:
The first collaboration to be announced was Muskoka Brewery with the band Born Ruffians – RUFF Draught is a tropical blonde ale, with notes of pineapple deriving from a variety of hops. Crisp and refreshing, it’s a crushable beer that’s great for jamming on the dock or out on stage.
The second collaboration to be announced was Nickel Brook Brewing with the band Arkells and Detour Coffee.
The third collaboration announced was Big Rock Brewery with Oliver & Bonacini.
The fourth collaboration announced was Sawdust City Brewing and Jason Collett – Bitter Beauty IIPA is a big, bold American IIPA loaded with mounds and mounds of delicious hops. Coming in at 9% and 90 IBUs this is the perfect sippin’ beer for when your sittin’ by the campfire strummin’ the Ol’ 6 string, this summer.
Stay tuned as more collabs get announced.
