THE 2020 BEER & BBQ SHOW HAS GONE VIRTUAL!
We’ve been cooped up inside for so long, and we miss in-person events just as much as you do. Our show was a great opportunity to see the newest flavours in Beer & BBQ, and now, we have some special content coming your way – at home. In your PJ’s, if you’d like, but that’s your choice.
Buy a ticket, grab some of your favorite brews (or try some new ones) and join us for an evening of fun, education, BBQ and of course, beer.
- Always wanted to cook with beer? This is your chance to learn.
- Got that one friend who never wants to leave their house? This is for them.
- Want to support your local breweries and hear their stories? We’ve got that too.
Join us on Friday, June 5th, or Saturday, June 6th for a BYOB Virtual Beer & BBQ Show from 7:00 - 8:30 PM.
- Virtual Brewery Tours
- Trivia game (winner gets a prize), sponsored by truLOCAL
Cooking shows with your favourite local radio hosts
- Beer Philosophy Discussion (because, why not?)
- Q&A with local breweries
- Special hosts Mike Fish, beer expert and sommelier & Western Fair District’s very own Rob Lumsden!
- Cooking with Beer & BBQ, hosted by Chef Mike, WFD
Tickets are $5 all-inclusive
**Profits from the event will go to the Old East Village BIA, to assist businesses in the BIA area with digital marketing initiatives.**
WHAT DO YOU MEAN, BYOB?
Our Participating Breweries need your business now more than ever, and most are already set up with convenient options for delivery, curbside pickup, or in person at the LCBO. Support them by purchasing your preferred brews (or some new ones) in advance of the event.
WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?
Haha. We’re so glad you asked. Our in-house weatherperson has determined it will be beautiful and sunny, especially as the physical event is not running. Go figure. Next year? It will snow.
WHERE’S THE BBQ?
Chef Mike will cover the content, but for your taste buds, most of our breweries are also offering some form of takeout. If you fancy a different feast (and we don’t mean the cat food), visit any of your favourite local restaurants and grab takeout from them, I’m sure they’d much appreciate it.

HOW DO I ACCESS THE EVENT?
Once you’ve bought your ticket, we will send a link through our event platform for you to access the online event. We will use the email you provided at checkout.
DO I NEED TO BE 19+ TO ATTEND?
Yes, you must be 19+ to participate in this event. We are respective of those practicing social distancing with young children at home, so we have scheduled this event between bathtime, sleep time, and the three times they’ll need to pee.
DO I NEED A TICKET FOR BOTH NIGHTS?
Currently, we will be running similar programs both nights, so we’d recommend picking the date that works best for you.
SO THERE’S NO PHYSICAL SHOW AT THE AGRIPLEX?
At this time the Agriplex is currently set up to support our community, public health & hospital needs (see the video here). We continue to follow the lead of our public health experts and our provincial & national leadership but we cannot wait to see everyone when it is safe to do so.
