Hamilton’s Newest Winter Festival, I Heart Beer Festival
Great beer, great food, great vibes. The essentials of any and every great beer festival.
If you’re anything like me, you live for these moments and experiences. An opportunity and an excuse to head out to an event, connect with old friends, meet some new ones along the way, and have a few drinks?! What isn’t there to look forward to?
Well luckily for the both of us (if you nodded your head agreeing with me that is…), there’s a new beer festival, the Hamilton I Heart Beer Festival coming to Hamilton in the New Year! The Hamilton I Heart Beer Festival will be taking place from February 10th -11th, 2017 at the Hamilton Convention Centre.
Over the span of 2 days, the Hamilton I Heart Beer Festival will be running a total of 3 festival sessions: Feb 10th starting at 6:00pm, Feb 1th, 2017 starting at 12:00pm, and Feb 11th, 2017 starting at 6:00pm. Entry for each session is only $15 for the month of December. After December, ticket prices will be going up to $18/session. All the more reason to get your tickets early!
Like any great beer festival, there are 3 reasons why the Hamilton I Heart Beer Festival should be on your list of go-to events in the New Year: Beer, Food and a Great Cause.
Because what would any beer festival be without the beer to begin with? At Hamilton I Heart Beer Festival you can expect to see quite a diverse selection of local and independently-owned brewers from all over Ontario. The festival will be hosting a total of 24 local brewers for all 3 sessions. Some of the confirmed breweries to date include: Collective Arts Brewing (Hamilton, ON), Wellington Brewery (Guelph, ON), Bayside Brewing Co (Erieau, ON), Bell City Brewing Co (Brantford, ON), Shawn & Ed Brewing Co (Dundas, ON), and more! You can checkout the full list of confirmed breweries here.
With great beer must come great food, of course. But you already knew that, didn’t you? This year, the Hamilton I Heart Beer Festival will be pairing 24 awesome Ontario beers (above) with 24 awesome Hamilton restaurants/caterer creations. The goal is to try and make something simple, fresh and affordable with each of the 24 beers so that all attendees have an opportunity to try numerous pairings without having to break that piggy bank of theirs.
The Hamilton I Heart Beer Festival will be supporting the McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation. Every admission comes with a $2 raffle ticket that can be used to win prize packages donated by the breweries and the vendors. Each Raffle ticket has a two token value and 100% of raffle ticket proceeds go to the McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for two tokens at the Charity table.
