Craft Beer Festival On Tap in Burlington


Small batches of suds are on deck in Burlington as the city hosts a two-day craft beer festival this weekend.

BurlonTap was created by Wayne Brown, who introduced the idea to friends Mike and Patti McMillan.

Brown, a self-described “consumate beer aficionado,” has recruited several local and distant craft breweries for the event.

BurlOnTap is a 19+ event, showcasing craft brewers, featuring an assortment of beers to sample, from stout to ale to lager to ciders.

Vendors include Nickel Brook Brewing, Orange Snail Brewers, MacKinnon Brothers, Beau’s, Four Fathers, Rhythm & Brews, Pint Pursuits, the Hamilton Brewery, Katalyst, Northern Maverick, Pelee Island Winery, Junction 56 Distillery, Cole Point Cider, Lock Street Brewing, and Goose Island.

The festival is taking place indoors at the Waterfront Hotel at 2020 Lakeshore Rd. (the hotel has an outdoor, waterfront patio).

The event runs on Aug. 11 at 4 p.m. until 11 p.m., then again on Aug. 12 from noon until 11 p.m.

Here are the ticket options:

  • Single Ticket - $30 + processing fee
  • Two-Pack - $55 + processing fee
  • Four-Pack - $100 + processing fee

All ticket prices include HST.

Keep in mind, each admission includes two free four-ounce samplings and a commemorative mug.

The Gift of Giving Back Community Food Drive, which supports six member agencies in Halton Region, will be onsite accepting non-perishable food items.
