The Golden Tap Awards weekend is fast approaching and it’s shaping up to be a great celebration of Ontario beer.

Friday night brings the first-ever Ontario craft beer dinner to beerbistro.  The dinner, featuring seven of the top craft breweries in Ontario paired with delicious beerbistro cuisine, will be a great kickoff to the weekend.  Tickets to the event have sold out.

Saturday is the big day, with a combination Ontario craft beer festival and awards announcement gala, also at beerbistro.  With over 25 Ontario craft breweries attending the festival, it will be one of the best opportunities to try the diversity and quality of craft beer in the province.
