It's back! An independent craft beer fest in Ottawa's West End!

October West is all about bringing friends and family* together to celebrate a day of beer, food, and fun!

Big Rig Brewery, Calabogie Brewing Co, and Small Pony Barrel Works have teamed up and invited 15 craft beer breweries, a cidery, a winery, and 5 food vendors for this year's festivities!

*family includes dogs too! we've got a dog park set up for our furry friends!

Tickets are $10 and include an October West glass (while supplies last) and your first drink token. Additional drink tokens are available on-site for $3.50. Visit our Eventbrite page to reserve your ticket today!

Not partaking in the beer sampling? No problem! Bring a non-perishable donation for Kanata Food Cupboard for entry to the festival grounds.

Family, friends, and dogs are welcome! - seriously, we have a dog park!

The festivities begin October 19, 2019 at 11:00am and run until 6:00pm.
