This summer, many Ontario breweries are hosting events and activities that make for a fun night out. Whether you’re looking for a healthy dose of competition amongst you and your friends, family-friendly programming, or something new to do on date night—this list has you covered!
SPORTS & FRIENDS
Who says you can’t exercise and enjoy a beer at the same time? It’s called multi-tasking!
Have you been watching a lot of those roller skating videos on TikTok? Then you’ll enjoy Skate & Sip night hosted by Something in the Water at The Bentway.
Runners, make sure to check out the running clubs at Eastbound.
The return of live music has been one of the joys of reopening. You can hear live music weekly at Old Flame, Market, Caledon Hills, Stonehooker, Black Gold, Cured, Flux, Draft, Calabogie, Lake of Bays and All or Nothing.
Craft beer might only be for adults, but many breweries are hosting events that the whole family can enjoy. If you’re looking to meet other parents visit Babies & Brew at Grain & Grit or the family concert series at Shawn & Ed. On Saturdays, this summer Badlands will have a food truck and there’ll be a market at All or Nothing.
The following unique events don’t fit into any of the above categories, though I’d recommend pencilling them into your summer schedule.
Gillingham is staging comedy nights and Clifford is hosting acrylic pour painting workshops. For those who want to learn more about food, Avling’s offering kitchen, brewery, and farm tours. And for those who want to watch their favourite television show with others, make sure to attend Kensington’s RuPaul’s Drag Race viewing parties.
