WindsorEats is introducing a new beer event to Windsor, Ontario, that will showcase exclusive one-off beers in a competition that gives attendees the opportunity to vote for their favourite.
Date: Saturday, April 18, 2020
Location: Downtown Windsor Business Accelerator, 1501 Howard Ave
Session 1: 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Session 2: 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
What’s so special about this event?
The one-day event, called Masters of the Brewniverse, is a celebration and friendly competition of one-off beers that are exclusive to the event, giving breweries the opportunity to showcase their creativity and win bragging rights. There will be two awards handed out: People’s Choice and the Master of the Brewniverse which will be decided by a panel of judges.
Breweries such as GL Heritage, Frank Brewing and The Grove Brew House have already committed and are brainstorming ways to take home the title.
“This event will be a great opportunity for the brewers to jump back on their pilot systems and experiment with new recipes,” says Dwayne Grondin, co-owner and brewer at GL Heritage. “It creates a feeling of excitement and anticipation of new beers for all of our followers. Having all the local breweries participate in this event only grows our regions reputation of a solid craft beer destination.”
The nature of the event means that beers will be limited, so it’s a unique opportunity for craft beer lovers to get away from the same old and try something truly different. However, not only are the beers in limited quantity, so are the tickets.
Taking place on Saturday, April 18, 2020, there will be two sessions throughout the day. Session One will take place from 1:00pm to 5:00pm and Session Two will run 7:00pm to 11:00pm. The winners will be announced at Session Two.
The aim of the event is to be a fun competition to showcase the creativity of your brewers and potentially form a camaraderie and do our part in strengthening the craft beer industry through potential partnerships and collaborations.
So how do you get your tickets?
First, due to the limited nature of the tickets (only 200 per session), we recommend getting yours ASAP in the WindsorEats online shop. Session One tickets are $42 and Session Two tickets are $47. Each ticket includes a branded Masters of the Brewniverse tasting glass and 16 samples (5oz. each). That’s 80oz of beer for an event themed after an 80’s cartoon. It just seems appropriate to also be cranking the best hits from the 80’s throughout the event.
80’s themed attire is welcome and encouraged, so tease that hair and bust out the shoulder pads.
