(Christmas Craft Beer Show/Facebook)

Who says beer is just a summer drink?!

Step aside, rum and eggnog – the Christmas Craft Beer Show is returning to the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre for the fourth year in a row!

For the past three years, this highly anticipated kick-off to the holidays has given beer enthusiasts a wonderful opportunity to celebrate barley-based beverages – by trying as many brews as they can physically handle.

Last year, the event featured over 40 vendors on-site, offering taste buds a variety of flavours and experiences. In fact, you can read a blog post about our experience at the event here to get a better idea of what it’s like!

Rock n’ roll band SuperSauce will be playing favorites from the 80s, 90s and today for live entertainment at the show, and there will be some tasty eats to pair with your brews, too.

If you’re attending, bring a heavy dose of Christmas cheer – those dressed in festive attire will be automatically entered to win prizing!
