Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest
#31
This is really smart, if they are offering craft beer or dare I say German beer they could really drive a lot of ticket sales. I really hope this catches on and KW Oktoberfest sees the value in drop their Molson sponsorship.

To nobody's surprise, Bingemans' deregistering was in order to serve German, craft, and local beers: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/kitchener-...-1.4139357

Lovely! A step toward a "National Beer Festival"? Perhaps only in my dreams ... Sad

Next step, they just need to build a pipeline direct from Waterloo Brewing to Bingemans.

I don’t enjoy beer myself, but I’m glad to see this. A festival sponsored by one major beer producer that serves only that brand is pretty lame. Whereas I (abstractly) like the idea of being able to try lots of different beers. I hope this is successful and either more venues split away in future years or the festival realizes it can’t continue to operate as a one-brand operation.

Anyone know offhand how much Molson subsidizes/contributes to the Event as a whole? Probably a HUGE amount with multiple brands under their umbrella. I'm all for local brewers and hope this works out
