Whenever I have guests come to town who love beer, Craft Beer Market is always on the Things to Do List. It is more than likely they are open near you too. With locations in:
Why Specifically Craft Beer Market?
Well, that’s a good question. I strongly believe in being an advocate for local craft beer and Craft Beer Market shares that philosophy. Craft Beer is so popular now and most cities just have so many wonderful options it’s hard to fit everything into one visit. Most guests don’t have time to visit every single brewery in town, so instead, I bring them to a place that has most of the local options all in one place. Not only does Craft Beer Market have a local flight which gives a great variety they also have a long list of local, Canadian and International Craft Beers which my guests usually delight in.
Great Food and Good Fun
Craft Beer Market also has a great variety of delicious food. I’ve noticed that there are a lot of beer places that tend to forget about vegetarians, but Craft has a menu to please veggie lovers and non-veggie lovers alike. From the Nacho Barrel (so named because it’s served in a keg top) to the 20 Napkin Burger, everyone leaves happy and full. Craft has got its finger on the community pulse. There’s always something going on whether it’s a party, a fundraiser for a local cause, or one of their own events you are guaranteed a good time.
So, wherever you are in Canada, find one near you. You won’t be disappointed. You can read more about Craft and their philosophies on sustainability in the articles below or about one of the owners, Rob Swiderski, who is also a Cicerone.
