About Us

NL Promotions

NL Promotions founder Steve Martin has been creating, planning and running events since his university days. This former teacher became hooked on community events and recreational programming in 2010 which eventually lead to a career change to municipal recreation. Steve currently has over 8 years in the community recreation industry in planning festivals, events, programs, and community infrastructure. His love for the event industry eventually led to the creation of NL Promotions in June of 2015.

This focus creates a major demand for unique events, shows, and concerts throughout the province. NL Promotions has brought quality concerts like Ghosts of Grand Ole Opry and The Day The Music Died to the province. His love for quality craft beer and knowledge in the event planning business sparked the idea of St. John’s BrewFest. Newfoundland and Labradors first craft beer festival!

Newfoundland has a very unique social culture. Our way of life tends to focus its energy on arts, music, food and night time life!Steve Martin (NL Promotions)

Our “Beer-osophy”

What does one do with a craft beer besides enjoy? One learns to understand the many facets of beer that can be found in different styles of craft beer. The Style Guidelines from the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) are a good start to understanding the different styles.

Beer is about appearance and colour, carbonation and head, aroma, flavour, mouthfeel, finish, and overall impression. Mirella Amato, Master Cicerone, developed a Beerology Evaluation which is available as a free download at beerology.ca (in English or French). Mirella is also the author of the book Beerology: Everything You Need to Know to Enjoy Beer…Even More which provides an excellent background to tasting beer.

Our objective is simple…to provide you with the opportunity to sample and experience many different styles of craft beer!
