Events where you’re guaranteed to see us and where we hope to see you.
The Billy Doppelbock Party
What: Sooo we brewed a delicious collaboration brew with our Last Best beer besties. We made a German style Dopplebock, which is perfect for the season - a rich malty base and noble hops to balance it out. Dopplebock translates to “double goat” so we decided to throw a billy goat party - where the goat comes into play we aren’t quite sure yet. Its ugly Christmas sweater themed, and there will be prizes for the ugliest and most fantastic Christmas sweaters. You could also dress up as a goat if you want, or you and your bestie can be double doppelgangers?! Just throwing it out there. We can’t wait to see you there.
When: Thursday Dec. 6 / 5pm - late.
Where: Last Best! In the beer shop.
What: Market Collective is back for its 10th (yes tenth!) year, and to celebrate its going to be the biggest one yet! It will be held inside the BMO Centre, with over 150 local artist and artisan vendors. Seriously, this is a market collective so big, we need a lot of space to talk about it.
There will be six local food trucks with vegan/vego options (and all day breaky) inside an 11,000 square foot all-ages licensed area serving up the freshest Village brews, and tons of our favourite local artists on stage - 19 bands, 12 DJ’s, 1 choir, 3 dance troops, and 2 yoga sessions. Seriously, we would go for the music alone. There’s also going to be an obstacle course and a skate park with an all girls workshop put on by 100% Skate Club, and an intro workshop for all the skateboard newbies. If you need a caffeine buzz to start the weekend, there will be a cafe with local faves Rosso, Tru Buch, Made by Marcus, and the like. We could go on forever about how fun this will be, but instead just come visit us in the beer gardens! Oh, and did we mention its only $5.00 admission for the entire weekend?!
When: Dec 7 -9 & 14 - 16.
Hours: Fri - 4pm - 9pm
Sat - 10am - 6pm
Sun - 10am - 6pm
