Savour The Best of Canada’s Beers, Wines and Spirits Through Festivals

Savour Canada's Beers, Wines and Spirits

2022 saw many restrictions lifted post-pandemic. This allowed a degree of normalcy and for physical interaction with friends and family, and to some degree, absolute strangers. But beer, cider, wine, and spirit festivals are not only for consuming alcoholic beverages. There are also great places for food from top-notch restaurants; music and performances – sometimes with top-tier artists and bands, which would be great for those who love to dance. In addition, it’s an excellent opportunity to participate in engaging masterclasses and forums, as well as meet up with the brewers and other artisans. The upcoming festivals promise fireworks; just remember to take it easy and ensure you have your hangover recipes ready by taking advantage of shopping deals on Best Buy or in the Freshco flyer.

Here are a few festivals that stand out and are essential to look out for:
