June 14, 2018   ·   0 Comments


Warm weather and cold, frosty beverages just seem to go together, so Friday’s Cheers Caledon! Craft Beer and Cider Festival promises to be a big hit in its second year.

Last year a small, select array of choices were offered to the roughly 1,200 people who attended, but this time around there will be more food, more drink, and even more fun.

“Cheers Caledon! is taking place during Ontario Craft Beer Week and only a couple weeks after Ontario Craft Cider Week,” said Mayor Allan Thompson in a release. “It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the local breweries and cideries in Caledon that are tapping into a growing market and creating real excitement and momentum.”

Joining Caledon’s own Spirit Tree Estate Cidery, Pommies, Caledon Hills, GoodLot Farmstead and Badlands Brewery will be:

·       Anderson Craft Ales

·       Big Rig Brewery

·       Elora Brewing Co.

·       Grand Spirits Distillery

·       Great Lakes Brewery

·       Ironwood Hard Cider

·       Partake Brewing

·       Redline Brewhouse

·       Red Thread Brewing Co.

·       The Second Wedge Brewing Co.

·       Social Lite

·       Waterloo Brewing

On the food side, well-known local purveyors Howard the Butcher and Miller’s Meats will be joined by some of the top food trucks from around the province:

·       The Crazy Canuck Caboose

·       Indian Flames

·       King Kone

·       Mustache Burger

·       Troy’s Diner

On the main stage DJ Dave Puzzo will kick off the musical entertainment, followed at 9 p.m. by “Canada’s Premier Party Band” The Associates.

Cheers Caledon! takes place Friday. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Gates open at 6 p.m.

Festivities take place on the Caledon Town Hall Civic Campus, 6311 Old Church Rd., Caledon East. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit cheerscaledon.ca.
