The Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association launches the first ever Canadian American (CAN AM) Beer Festival on April 7th 2018 at the Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls from 3-7PM. This will be a regional beer event featuring:
- 20 Ontario brews made in collaboration with 20 visiting WNY breweries
- 20 WNY brews made in collaboration with 20 visiting Ontario breweries
- See list http://canadianamericanbeerfestival.com/breweries/
These and other beers will be served at the event. The focus of the inaugural year will be on these cross-border brewing collabs involving the making of as many as 40 unique collab brews. This highlights the great breweries, the exciting craft beer potential, and the many international friendships that exist in our bi-national region.
The CAN AM will also feature Canadian food and music culture. On the culinary front, the CAN AM will feature an array of Canadian-themed food stations that will give you the chance to taste classic and new Canadian dishes paired with the CAN AM brews. Chef Krista van Wagner will coordinate Meet the Brewer taste sessions wherein Canadian & American craft brewers will lead the audience through interesting CAN AM beer and food pairings. International experts such as Toronto writer Stephen Beaumont (author of The Beer and Food Companion) and culinary expert Gary Toraville (head of the Canadian Food and Wine Institute) will be on hand to provide informative perspectives on what is going on in the world of beer and food in Canada. Finally, on the music front, our music curator will play a selection of superb Canadian tunes to accompny your superlative Canadian & American CAN AM taste experiences.
CAN AM 2018 is the first iteration of what we hope will grow into a very large annual beer festival and beer competition taking place on both sides of the border in both Niagara Falls, USA and Niagara Falls, Ontario. We believe CAN AM can become one of the biggest and best North American beer festivals with hundreds craft breweries, several days of festivities, and a prominent highly-anticipated beer competition.
