The Windsor Craft Beer Festival is celebrating 5 years as the region’s original craft beer festival, and here’s why you should add it to your list of things to do this weekend.
It’s hosted by WindsorEats and Motor Craft Ales and will take place in Walkerville, a town created by Hiram Walker with a ton of character and even more history. It was voted as the best festival within the entire Lake Erie region and seems to get even better with each passing year.
Since the festival began 5 years ago, the craft beer scene in Windsor Essex has gained real traction, growing from one craft brewery in the region to 12.
“We have a lineup of brewers with a few old favourites and a few new and exciting breweries that are only attending the Windsor Craft Beer Festival,” explains Adriano Ciotoli, one of the festival organizers and co-owner of WindsorEats. “Brewers are bringing special one off brews that can only be tasted at this event.”
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the more interesting brews you’ll find at the festival:
Jalapeño Cream Ale by Craft Heads Brewing Co., Oatmeal Stout by St. Ambroise, Marshmellow Pumpkin Cream Ale (pumpkin cask) by Motor Craft Ales, Wagner Orchards Cherry Cider by WindsorEats, Tartan Pants- Scotch Ale by Big Rig Brewery, Road Block Doppelbock by Walkerville Brewery.
