Trafalgar Brewing Company would like to invite anyone and everyone to come down to our brewery in Oakville to celebrate Father’s Day with an open house and new beer tasting this Sunday June 18th, from 12 noon until 5 o’clock pm.

This event is open to the public, features free beer samples, and guided tours of the brewery. Trafalgar’s brewing staff will be on-hand to give guided tours and explain how our beer is made.
This year’s open house comes with an added bonus: the release of Critical Mass, Canada’s strongest beer! Not for the faint of heart, this supercharged ale is double-fermented and brewed in the Belgian style, with bold coriander and citrus notes. Best of all, Critical Mass boasts an impressive 14.7% alc./vol!!! Critical Mass will be the first in Trafalgar’s line of Very Strong Beers, so any public feedback would be greatly appreciated. Snacks and samples of our other beers and meads will also be available throughout the day in the brewery and at our brewpub, The Tied House.
