Sing Along with the Ode to Beer

Lets party at the Windsor Craft Beer Festival

We love beer, so to honour our love at the Windsor Craft Beer Festival, we’ll be singing an ode to beer every hour. We encourage all festival goers to join us in a brotherly and sisterly salute to the drink we love:

Now I, friend, drink to you, friend, as my friend drank to me.
And I, friend, charge to you, friend, as my friend charge me.
That you, friend, drink to your friend, as my friend drank to me;
And the more we drink together, friend, the merrier we will be!
