Have you found yourself lamenting the fact that summer is winding down and there are thus fewer and fewer opportunities to combine your love of food and beer festivals, road trips, and pie-baking competitions?
If so, I’ve got good news for you.
On September 23, 24, and 25, Port Hope Ontario will play host to Cultivate: A Festival of Food and Drink–and Ben’s Beer Blog is giving away a pair of weekend passes to one lucky reader.
Cultivate is a three-day celebration of local food and, as you might imagine given that you’re reading this on a beer blog, there will be beer there, too.
Church Key Brewing, William Street Beer Co., Northumberland Hills Brewery, William Street Beer Co, Smithaven, Manantler Craft Brewing Co, and Wild Card Brewing will all be in attendance offering up beer paired with food from local resterauteurs and there will be live music from the likes of Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans, the Good Lovelies, Basia Bulat, The Wooden Sky, and Margarita Joe and the Banjo Dinks.
OK, I made that last one up.
There’s also hands-on demonstrations and workshops with chefs, farmers, book signings with cookbook authors, and, your grandma’s favouirte, a motherfucking pie-baking competition!
If you want to win a piar of tickets, just leave a comment below telling me the most interesting fact you can think of about Port Hope, Ontario. There is no requirement that said fact be truthful. I’ll pick a winner at random from all the commenters. As always, entrants that make me laugh will be entered into the draw twice.
