Learning From Beer

George Brown College students select the growing trend of craft beer for their most ambitious project yet


I love beer festivals.

I love the selection. I love being surrounded (for the most part) by people who love beer as much as I do. I love having the ability to connect with my favourite brands and give them thanks for a brew that I particularly enjoyed.

With that in mind, it seems I’m not the only twenty-something student in the universe that not only loves beer, but loves the culture surrounding it.

Shelly Avner, the head of Marketing for UntappedTO, is one of the 16 Event Planning students running UnTappedTO, Toronto’s newest (and only indoor one I can think of ) winter festival celebrating the best in craft beer.

“The breweries have been extremely supportive,” says Shelly. “They are all about getting their product in the hands of new drinkers, and have been great to work with so far.”

The large student team has been extremely busy the past few months, carefully planning each aspect of the event, from sponsorship to vendors, as a part of their Capstone project.  Sponsors and vendors (including popular trendsetters Smoke’s Poutinerie) will be present, keeping you entertained, and well fed.

Attending breweries include Amsterdam, Junction, Beau’s, Wellington, Lake of Bays, Cameron’s, Railway City, Black Oak, Brimstone, and Brickworks Ciderhouse.

They’re on Twitter and Instagram @untappedTO as well – give ’em a follow, especially to take pictures of the event and let them know what you think!

There’s no doubt Bottomless Pint readers will want to attend, so come on down – Matt and I will be there to get some pictures and quotables for a recap of the event coming in a couple of weeks.

Here are the deets:
