The Swedish-Canadian Chamber of Commerce mingling with the patrons, Six Swedish breweries with 28 different brands, Schnapps tasting, two renowned Swedish Chefs(Peter J. Skogstrom+Roland Persson) inside a 10,00 sq.foot area preparing food for the guests and traditional Swedish dancers were some of the high lights of the special preview on Friday.
