With the sun shining lately it almost feels like summer again, I know for most of us in the Ottawa area it’s been kind of dreary lately but cheer up! OCB Week starts Sunday and not to mention all the other Craft Beer events happening around our region this summer.
Over the last five years Watson’s Mill has held it’s annual beer tasting focused on beers from all over the world. This year I was excited to see the main focus of the whole event is craft beer and specifically craft beer within 100 miles of Watson’s Mill. I’ve never been able to attend an event before (due to prior commitments) but was happy to mark my calender as soon as I found out the date.
To date Barley Day’s Brewery, Hogsback Brewing Co, & Mad Hatter Brew Co. have confirmed for the event, with more breweries confirming as time progresses, I will for sure be updating as time goes on. I’m really excited for this event.
Some highlights for the 2013 event:
– Fine hors d’oeuvres and appetizers crafted by Chef David Godsoe of Indulge Kitchen and Cocktails,
– Live jazz music provided by the Swamp Water Jazz Band
– Raffle tickets for donated prizes from the community and local breweries
Tickets are $30 only and are available to Watson’s Mill. With the cost of admission it will include five 4 oz samples redeemable at any of the brewery stations. (Additional sample tickets will be available for purchase at the event.)
