What can I expect?
This event is a great way to experience Ontario craft beer and cideries, whether you’re a seasoned beer lover or simply interested in expanding your palate and knowledge.
The Small Arms Inspection Building, owned and operated by the City of Mississauga, is a 1940’s building that is mid-restoration after being rescued from the wrecking ball by our community. The space has a unique feel, with massive windows and a skylight running nearly end to end.
