Time to grow again. This spring 2017, we will be presenting the new, Ottawa Beer Fest.

The Ottawa Craft Beer Festival completed its fifth year in 2016. It was the largest craft beer festival in Ontario, thanks to the participation of the Craft Brewers, Ottawa’s tourists and our local beer enthusiasts.

The Ottawa Beer Fest will combine the best of the Craft Beer industry, both locally and from throughout Ontario, along with all of the domestic icons, specialty, ciders,  and imports beer brands. There’s a little something for everyone!

This year we will feature a wider variety of beer, more live entertainment, and lots of local food. Once again running alongside us on Saturday, will be the Craft Beer Run.

Thank you to all who supported both Ottawa and Ontario’s craft beer industry, and enjoyed the beers we had to offer. We look forward to seeing you and your friends again this year.
