Craft Beer Awards

The Craft Beer Awards are back at the Royal Winter Fair, but this year we are in a new location...The Ring of Excellence! Sip, sample and celebrate some of the best craft beers from across Canada! One night only! Official judging will take place this year, however we still need YOU to vote for your favourite beers for the Peoples' Choice category! It's a tough job but we need your help!

Your ticket to the Craft Beer Awards (6pm-11pm) includes 10 sample vouchers (value $5) and ALSO includes ALL DAY GENERAL ADMISSION to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair; the largest combined indoor agricultural fair and international equestrian competition in the world. This means you can check out the Fair before putting on your judge's hat and heading over to the Ring of Excellence.

Please note that the doors to the Fair close at 9pm so you MUST arrive to the Craft Beer Awards by 9pm.

Stay tuned for categories and breweries taking part!

The Craft Beer Awards is a pay-as-you-go sampling event. You get 10 sample vouchers with your admission and each voucher is worth $0.50 for a 2oz pour. Don't worry you can always come back for more, but we need you to try as many of these great beers as possible! Additional vouchers will be available onsite for $0.50 each (sold in groups of 10)
