The Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association has included a “Meet the Brewers” tent at the Brewers Festival, for four years running. The CanAm will embrace this tradition and bring you some tasty Canadian morsels paired with artfully brewed Canadian and American Craft Brews. Two CanAm Meet the Brewers Seminars will be given by two esteemed members of the Ontario craft brewing industry. Namely, one seminar will be lead by Jon Downing, master brewer and professor at Niagara College Teaching Brewery, the other by Stephen Beaumont, the Toronto-based craft beer writer and author of the Beer & Food Companion, The World Atlas of Beer, and the Pocket Beer Guide. The details of the two seminars are forthcoming – check back often for updates. Tickets for Meet the Brewer will be $5 and can be purchased at the door and at the seminars directly.
To give you an idea of how we roll, have a look at the two sessions from the Meet the Brewer Tent we hosted at the 2017 Buffalo Brewers Festival.
