Cape Breton Island's Largest Craft Beer Festival
Cape Breton Beer Fest began with the idea of promoting the local craft brewery culture on Cape Breton Island. Teaming up with Nigel Kearns, we aimed to create a festival that would bring craft breweries and their customers under one roof for a night of live entertainment, local food and craft beer.
2016 Event was a success, bringing in 16 craft breweries, 4 food vendors along with a premium apple cider company and local spirit company. 550+ in attendance.
2017 Event was an even larger success than our inaugural year, boasting 17 craft breweries, 4 local food and sauce vendors, along with premium apple cider and local spirit vendor. 750+ in attendance.
2018 Event was our first official sell out! With close to 850 patrons, 26 vendors including our craft breweries, NS Spirit Co., Bulwark Cider and local businesses. We look forward to our 2019 show and are excited to see our festival growing each year! Stay tuned for more information
