Merry Craft-Mas by Hoppy Holidays @ Berkley Church (Tue. Dec 4, 2018)

What are the holidays without family, food, and BEER! And that’s what we have Hoppy Holidays for, hosted at Berkley Church, located at 315 Queen Street East, on December 5th. This was the 5th Annual craft beer sampling event, complete with seasonal brews, one-off creations, and festive beer cocktails!

Although this is a beer focused event, non-beer choices were available preferring an alternative to beer, from Nutrl Vodka, Shiny Apple Cider, Black Fly Beverage Co., Rood Apple Cider and Smalltalk Vineyards. A refreshing way to kick off the holidays, with not only a drink in your hand, but in “style”. Guests who showed up with the ugliest holiday-themed sweaters were eligible to win great prizes!

Vendors included:

Beau’s All Natural Brewing Co., Big Rock Brewery, Black Bellows,  Black Fly Beverage Co., Glutenberg, McAuslan Brewing, Muskoka Brewery, Niagara Oast House Brewers, Nickel Brook Brewing Co., NUTRL Vodka Soda, Rood Apples Cider, Shawn & Ed Brewing Co., Shiny Apple Cider, Small Talk Vineyards, Sobeys Urban Fresh sampling station, Cured Spice Co from Prince Edward County, Velha & Co., handmade wooden six pack holders, bottle openers, cutting boards & more.
