Serious Summer Sizzle Served-up at the Fourth Annual Beer and BBQ Show

Posted Date: 
Tuesday, June 14, 2016

London’s kick-off to summer is here with the Beer and BBQ Show presented by Clubhouse LaGrille. The show runs June 17th – 19th at the Western Fair District’s Metroland Media Agriplex.

To quench your thirst we have brought together all of Canada’s top breweries and over fifty beers from Ontario’s established culture of craft beers. And, if beer isn’t your style check-out our wine garden or sample from a selection of coolers, ciders, wine beverages and liquor brands.

To complement the ice cold beverages indulge in the Beer and BBQ Show’s serious summer sizzle served up smoked, BBQ’d, grilled, sliced, diced, chopped and sauced.

Be entertained with a side of summer fun in the form of backyard games, live music, cooking demonstrations, cook-offs, taste-offs and more.
