The Brewery Market is coming to Quebec

PosterAfter numerous successful events in Ottawa, the Brewery Market is going to have its first-ever event with our friends in Quebec.  On July 26th, we’ll be hosting the inaugural Marché des Brasseurs at the Hendrick Farm in Old Chelsea, which is only about 15 minutes away from downtown Ottawa.  And we couldn’t be more excited to be having a Brewery Market with the delicious and world-class local beers of Quebec.

We are thrilled to be welcoming to the Marché des Brasseurs the following breweries: Trou du Diable from Shawinigan, Brasserie Dunham from Dunham, Microbrasserie Le Castor from Rigaud, Brasseurs du Temps from Gatineau and Benelux from Montreal.  We will also be featuring local food vendors to complement the beers from these great breweries.

The beautiful and picturesque Hendrick Farm is located in Old Chelsea, Quebec, and to make it easier to get there from Ottawa, we will be running a shuttle bus throughout the day in partnership with Brew Donkey.  The bus will pick-up from the corner of Fairmont and Wellington (just down the street from our Brewery Market location Hintonburg Park) and will cost $10 for a round trip ticket.  You can reserve a bus ticket online here, or begin the process in the area below.  The Marché des Brasseurs itself will be free admission, just like the Brewery Market is.

The Marché des Brasseurs will be taking place on Saturday, July 26th, 2014 from 12-6pm at Hendrick Farm, located at 3 ch. Chelbrook in Old Chelsea, Quebec.  The event will be free admission and all-ages, and proceeds will help support Ottawa Riverkeeper/Sentinelle Outaouais.  We truly hope to see you there!

Hey! Why no samples?

Spend less time in line-ups, and more time enjoying full beers with friends at our beer-garden inspired event.

We often get asked: Why don’t we serve beer in sample sizes?

The Brewery Market is a little different from other beer events. We’re a twist on a beer garden—an event that is, before all else, social, relaxed, casual and family-friendly. Our intention is to encourage social engagement, in an accessible outdoor setting, while being able to enjoy a cold, full glass of local craft beer.

For us, this means spending less time sampling, and more time catching up with old friends, making new ones, or meeting your neighbourhood brewer.

If you can’t make it through the 27 beers on offer this Saturday (and we don’t recommend that you try. Though, kudos if you do)—the majority of brewers that are featured in the Brewery Market are from the Ottawa area. Pop by their brewery for a visit. We’re sure they’d welcome enthusiastic new fans with open arms.

A Rainy Kick-off at the Drink of Dreams

A big thanks to everybody who braved the rain and cold and made it out to the Drink of Dreams, the first of four Brewery Markets this year. Your presence not only demonstrated your love and support of our hard-working, local brewers, but it also helped raise dollars for our Ottawa Riverkeeper. So, cheers to you!

Big thanks to our beer and food participants: Big Rig, Clocktower, Covered Bridge, Kichessipi and Stone Soup Foodworks. Great beer, tasty food.

The event wouldn’t be possible without the help of the Brewery Market team—Taralyn Carver, Mark Carver, Danielle Quigley and Cass Enright.

Big kudos to our amazing team of volunteer team: Mary-Beth Marshall, Brian Marshall, Suzanne Marshall, Patrick White, Jennifer Purkiss, Kyla Cullain, Sean MacGinnis, Maribeth Butler, Ryan Janssens, Brendan Haveman, Erica Hendry, Colin White, Jamie Kwong, Jasmine Savoie and the Ottawa Riverkeeper folk: Rachel Balderson, Karen McRae, Mireille Lamontagne, Jean-François Leroux, and Rita Jain.

We would also like to extend our thanks to the media and community members who picked up the story, and helped share the good word of Brewery Market: Jeff Hopper and the team at CTV Ottawa News, Amanda Armstrong (Apt. 613), Laura Robin + Ashley Fraser (The Ottawa Citizen), Zachary Dayler (Wellington West BIA), Andrea Madott (CouchAssassin), Lucy Sholey (Metro News), Matt Harrison (Ottawa Magazine) and Katy Watts + Sasha Dunfield (OttawaBeerEvents.ca).

And a big hat off to our Mayor, Jim Watson, and city councillor Katherine Hobbs for coming out and showing that they care for community events, such as this.

We hope to see you at our next Brewery Market, which will be taking place on Saturday, May 24th, again at Hintonburg Park. We’ll be welcoming the most delicious beer from Ashton, Beaus, Beyond the Pale, Cassel, HogsBack and Whitewater– along with a few surprises!

Brewery Market Returns Tomorrow!

DoDThe weather indicates that winter isn’t over, but spring is definitely here for the Brewery Market. Tomorrow, Saturday, April 26th from 12-6pm, the Brewery Market returns to our new location of Hintonburg Park with our first event, the Drink of Dreams.

Tomorrow’s event should be a smash hit, with upwards of 20 beers available from Covered Bridge, Big Rig, Kichesippi and Clocktower, with food from Stone Soup Foodworks and Clocktower. Tomorrow’s event marks the first of four this year in Ottawa, with future dates in May, July and October.

Admission to the Brewery Market is free and the event is all-ages. Proceeds from the event go towards the great work of the Ottawa Riverkeeper. Bring your umbrella and boots as the event will go rain or shine, and we hope to see you there!
