Brewster Fest | Celebrating Women in Beer

  • Mayflower Curling Club 3000 Monaghan Drive Halifax, NS, B3K 2V9 Canada (map)

Welcome to our inaugural year of Brewster Festival! Good Robot Brewing Company challenged Breweries around Atlantic Canada to create beers with their Women identified Staff and Brewers for this Beer Festival - and it's been a great response!

As you may know, there are very few women in brewing. This is part of the way Good Robot wants to address the gap.

This Beer Festival features 12+ Atlantic breweries who are either woman-owned, or who have collaborated with woman identified staff members to create some cool new styles of beer!

Tickets include 8 x 5 ounce samples and all beer is brewed by Women. ALL GENDERS AND IDENTITIES ARE WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EVENT! Get your tickets while you can and check out the list of participating Breweries below!
There will be two sessions:
Afternoon Session 1-4pm
Evening Session 7-10pm
Tickets are $30 through TicketHalifax
