Halifax Seaport BeerFest
A true celebration of all things brewed, the fourth annual Halifax Seaport BeerFest will feature over 150 beers and ciders from the Maritimes and around the world. Held at the historic Halifax Seaport on August 13 to14, 2010, approximately 4500 beer fans are expected to attend.
“Due to last year’s sell-out, we have added a Friday evening session, so now we have two days of tastings,” says Garrison Brewing Co. president and festival co-chair, Brian Titus. “The festival has been a huge hit with beer-lovers over the past three years and we will keep growing and adapting to make it better for attendees each year.”
Great beer deserves great food. Again this year, Taste of Nova Scotia members will be onsite selling beer-inspired snacks for hungry festival goers. Scanway Catering, FID Resto and Eel Lake Oysters are all confirmed to serve local food at this year’s BeerFest.
“Our goal is to create a world-class gathering of breweries each year in Halifax…where people can sample new products, enjoy old favorites and enhance their beer knowledge in a spectacular outdoor festival setting,” says Titus.
Seaport Beerfest tickets will be available in July 12, 2010 at select NSLC stores as well as Garrison Brewing Company for $40 plus HST or $45 at the door. There will be evening sessions from 7:00pm to 10:00pm, on Friday and Saturday, as well as a Saturday afternoon session from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.
