This province is blessed with amazing craft beer, and I intend to prove it.

Once a month at Tequila Bookworm, I’m guiding lively, interactive and educational sessions, using Ontario craft beer as course material.

Over three hours we touch on everything from:

  • How to make beer part of your healthy lifestyle
  • Proper pouring, serving, tasting and storage
  • Beer as a kitchen ingredient
  • Ontario’s fascinating beer history
  • Why beer is the most consumed alcoholic beverage in Canada (by far)
  • How craft beer is reviving an otherwise sagging industry
  • This province’s beers, in context with what’s happening elsewhere
  • Beer as a crucial piece of the economy

Who is this geared towards:

  • Craft beer converts
  • Craft beer curious
  • Craft beer tourists

Location: Upstairs at Tequila Bookworm (512 Queen Street W., at the corner of Queen & Portland)
Price: $30.00 each, which includes:

  • eight excellent tasters of Ontario craft
  • samples of food made with Ontario craft beer
  • prize(s) for trivia winner(s)

NOTE: This is not a Tequila Bookworm event, so please be prepared to pay cash.

Upcoming Dates:
  • Thursday, July 24th – 6:30 p.m.
