SEASONAL THEMES

  1. Ugly Sweater Season:  During the months of November and December, we celebrate our love for beer and Ugly Christmas Sweaters! ❤️🎄

  2. Every Day is Taco Tuesday Season:  From February to early May, we bring you beer and tacos, probably the best combo since PB&J. ❤️🌮

  3. Burger Season:  🍔 & 🍺, it's all a person truly needs. ❤️🍔

BEER, CIDER & SPIRITS SAMPLING

One of the greatest things about attending an I❤︎BEER Festival is the ability to sample lots of different beers brewed by local Ontario breweries.  If beer isn't your thing, we always have 1 or 2 cideries/distilleries at each event.  Most beer samples will be either 5 or 6 ounces and the majority of beers will be one token ($2.50).  Your sample glass is 12 ounces, so if there's a beer you really like, you can get a double sample. ❤️🍺🥃&🍏

GREAT FOOD FROM LOCAL VENDORS

Food is an important part of each and every I❤️BEER Festival. We partner with local restaurants, caterers and bakeries to bring delectable eats to festival attendees.  

At every festival, attendees can grab a menu card that lists all the drink vendors at the event on one side and 2 food options from each food vendor and their costs on the other.  So instead of going to each food vendor to see what they offer and for how much, you can save time by looking at the menu card. ❤️🍔🌮🥨

LET'S FIND YOU A PLACE TO SIT

My biggest pet peeve at any festival is the lack of seating.  I get it, tables and chairs take up valuable space and cost money to rent. 

 

So when I started I❤️BEER, I set a goal to have a minimum of 20% seating capacity at every festival.  Although some venues are too small or awkward to achieve our 20% goal, we do our best to put in as much seating as possible. ❤️🪑

RINSING & WATER STATIONS

My second biggest pet peeve?  WATER!  Cold filtered water should be free at every beer festival.  Nothing says price gauging like a $5 bottle of water at a food and drink show.   

At I❤️BEER, FREE ice water is  available at every event and rinsing stations are spread across the venue so you can rinse your glass if you so choose between each beer, cider or spirits sample. Bottled water will be available for purchase as well at some of the food vendor booths.  ❤️💧

LIVE DJ AND DANCING

We've partnered with PYNX Productions since 2017.  Providing attendees top level sound and top level DJ's at every festival.

 

As the festival ramps up, so does the music. Festivals often end with a large dance party near  the stage. So if you like to dance, bring those dancing shoes! ❤️🎵&💃
