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. more…
