KINGSTON, ON – Craft Beer Days, a tourism program that “showcases the people and places brewing exceptional craft beer in communities across Ontario,” has announced full details of its latest event which will be happening this weekend (Saturday, November 5th and Sunday, November 6th) in Kingston, Ontario.
Craft Beer Days Kingston will take place at all seven of Kingston’s craft breweries – Daft Brewing, Fine Balance Brewing, Kingston Brewing Company, Riverhead Brewing, Skeleton Park Brewery, Spearhead Brewing, and Stone City Brew Co. (now part of Something In The Water Brewing) – with a format described in the announcement as follows:
The event will operate as a self-guided brewery tour, where you use a Craft Beer Days Passport to collect stamps from each brewery that you visit. All participating breweries will be offering free brewhouse tours throughout the weekend and serving up an exclusive Canadiana-themed “featured beer” brewed specifically for the event. These featured beers will be available at a fixed price at each brewery – $5 for a full pour or $3 for a half pour – and will showcase the creativity and prowess of the local brewers.
Once your local brewery adventure is complete, you can vote for your favourite featured beer and then turn in your passport at the last brewery you visit. Anyone that visits at least two breweries will receive a free souvenir and anyone that visits more than two breweries will be entered into a draw for a long list of amazing prizes.
“I’m so excited to bring this event to Kingston,” said Craft Beer Days founder Mike Sawchuck in a statement. “The beer scene here is ideal for an event like this because you have so many amazing breweries located in such close proximity and they’re all so different from one another. I don’t know if there’s another community in Ontario where each brewery has so clearly carved out its own identity in terms of both its general atmosphere and its offerings.”
Craft Beer Days Kingston is sponsored by Tourism Kingston as part of its mission to “promote Kingston, Ontario as a uniquely historic and hip destination to explore year-round.”
