It might be gloomy and chilly right now, but summer is fast approaching and one warmer weather event full of beer, cider, and food will be hitting Mississauga in the not-too-distant future. 

Mississauga’s Creative Craft Beer Festival, which will take place at the Small Arms Inspection Building in the city’s east-end Lakeview neighbourhood, is slated to run on June 16 and 17.

CreativeHub 1352 recently announced that more than 20 independent, Ontario-based craft breweries, cideries and food vendors will sell drinks and snacks to revellers over the festival’s two-day run. 

The event, broken up into three sessions, will also feature live music and games. 

“The 2nd Creative Craft Beer Festival is around the corner, and as Mississauga’s first and only craft beer festival, we couldn’t be more excited for its arrival. You can expect a fun atmosphere with your favourite local breweries, inclusive food options, live music, and activities throughout the day,” said Shannon Baldwin, one of the event organizers, in a news release. 

“We’re really looking forward to seeing everyone in June, cheers!” 

The festival will feature a number of vendors, including Couchiching Craft Brewing Co., Eastbound Brewing Co., Nickel Brook Brewing Co., Old Credit Brewing Co., Old Flame Brewing Co., Red Tape Brewery, Stonehooker Brewing Co., and more. 

Both indoor and outdoor seating will be available. 

Early bird tickets are $20 and include a souvenir sampling glass and two sample tokens. Additional tokens can be purchased at the event. 

Starting June 11, tickets will cost $22. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $25. 

During the afternoon session (12 pm to 5 pm) on June 17, families are welcome to bring babies and small children in strollers for free. The evening sessions are 19+. 

Parking is available on site, and the building is close to public transit.
