Posted on Monday June 11, 2018

Last year the inaugural Cheers Caledon! Craft Beer and Cider Festival showcased a small but select group of Ontario’s best beverage producers to some 1,200 attendees.

Now, in its second edition, Cheers Caledon! is adding representation from several new craft beer and cider producers as well as a larger offering of food choices and main stage musical entertainment.

“Cheers Caledon! is taking place during Ontario Craft Beer Week and only a couple weeks after Ontario Craft Cider Week,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “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.”

  • Big Rig Brewery
  • Chudleigh's Orchard Cider
  • Elora Brewing Co.
  • Grand Spirits Distillery
  • Great Lakes Brewery
  • Hop City Brewing
  • Ironwood Hard Cider
  • Partake Brewing
  • Redline Brewhouse
  • Red Thread Brewing Co.
  • The Second Wedge Brewing Co. and
  • Social Lite

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, and
  • Troy’s Diner

On the main stage DJ Dave Puzzo will kick off the musical entertainment, followed at 9:00 p.m. by “Canada’s Premier Party Band” The Associates.

Cheers Caledon! takes place Friday, June 15, 2018
