It's finally here, it's finally here! Last night was the official launch party for National Capital Craft Beer Week hosted at D'Arcy McGee's on Sparks St. There was music, sausage, samples, a bike serving beer and Mayor Jim Watson even showed off his keg tapping skills!
Over the next week celebrate craft beer in the capital by attending one of the Craft Beer Week events like the Sessions Cask Ale Festival, special beer paired dinner with Stephen Beaumont or the two-day Craft Beer Festival featuring 17 breweries. When you're not hoisting your ceremonial Craft Beer Week mug, visit a brewery to learn how your favourite beer is made then go to one of the participating restaurants/pubs for a special menu and a pint of local brew.
