About St. John’s Brewfest
The explosion of interest in, and taste for, craft beer has recently arrived in Newfoundland and Labrador. Witness the increased selection available at the Newfoundland Labrador Liquor Corporation (NLC) and look for an additional 110 new brews to land on their shelves in 2016. Since inception three years ago, the Newfoundland Labrador Artisanal and Craft Beer Club (NLACBC) has brought over 100 different beer and three sets of BeerAdvent® Calendars to over 3,800 club members in the Province. However, there are so many other beers out there to be tasted and many people in the Province not yet exposed to the dynamic and fascinating aroma and flavour of Craft Beer. This is why the NLACBC partnered with NL Promotions to bring to the Province an array of over 40 different craft beer to be explored, tasted, and enjoyed. This is also why The Beverage Baron is bringing the great products from Muskoka Brewery, MicroBrasserie Charlevoix and Garrison Brewing for tasting and why decision makers at the NLC and purchasers for beer service in the Newfoundland Labrador hospitality industry are invited to attend the event and provide their feedback on the various beers. In addition, in response to many member requests to have the opportunity to taste before purchasing, the BrewFest allows NLACBC members to let Tom Beckett know which beers should be ordered in the near future.
The event is not a drink-all-you-can-fest. Each 50 ml sample will be priced based upon the retail price at the NLC. Prices therefore are reasonable. These are beer meant to be examined thoughtfully, to be discussed with friends and better halfs, to be included in your Untappd account, and to be remembered in future when they show up on NLC shelves or on NLACBC beer offerings.
