Spring officially switches gears into Summer tomorrow, June 21st – basically your call-to-action to make the most out of these elongated days which, not to be a bummer, begin to shorten again as of Thursday… One way to fulfill your ‘duty’ is by hitting Luppolo Brewing Company on June 24th for the 3rd Annual Summer Solstice Sesh Fruit & Sour Beer Fest.
More than just a mouthful to say, the fest will also be the place to fill your gullet with super summery beers – including some “insanely limited, one-off, barrel aged and mixed fermentation” kegs, vintage and new releases, and seasonal flavour favourites – and a special Italian food menu (courtesy of Mordimi Bite of Italy). Plus, Luppolo’s patio situation will be a full-on filling station for sunshine and summer weekend vibes, featuring two DJ sets slated for the evening hours, from 5-9pm.
(Also of importance: although wild, fruit-forward and face-puckering beers will take precedence on the brewery’s 12+ taps, there will also be more quaffable options for palate-cleansing purposes and for those who prefer a less intense beer-drinking experience.)
The Summer Solstice Sesh Fruit & Sour Beer Fest kicks off at the brewery (1123 Venables Street) at Noon this Saturday. The event is chill, though, so you can roll in whenever you like – no reservations or tickets are required, and entry is free. That being said, if your MO is to taste as much of the good stuff as possible, then a sooner-versus-later sense of urgency is best, since the likelihood of some super special small batch beers selling out early is high!
