5th Annual Canadian Beer Day On Oct 4, 2023

On October 4th, Canadians are invited to celebrate Canadian Beer Day, a day dedicated to Canadian Beer and the people who brew, sell, deliver, serve, pour, or simply enjoy it.

This year’s theme, Passion & Pride: The People Behind Canadian Beer shines a spotlight on the individuals essential to bringing our nation’s favourite adult beverage from “grains-to-glass”.

It’s an occasion to thank everyone across our value-chain, from the family farm to the maltsters, brewers, warehousers, truck drivers, retailers, bartenders, and servers.
