If you haven't already heard WinterBrewed, Ottawa's newest annual craft beer festival is this weekend and it's celebrating 200 years of brewing in the capital! Over 15 awesome breweries from Ontario and Quebec will be on hand as well as Artisanal food producers to keep you well-fed while you're sampling. Oh, and did I mention there's a live stage, ice bar and hot beer? It's all happening on Sparks Street this weekend (February 16 and 17) from 11:30am to 9:00pm and tasting glasses/sampling tickets are available for prepurchase online to help you jump the queue.
If you can't get enough craft beer or want to party in the warmth with some of your closest craft brewery friends, WinterBrewed is hosting a VIP party at the Mariott on Kent Street on February 17. There will be live music, prizes, giveaways and, of course, craft beer.
