More than just wine at the Niagara Food & Wine Expo
NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. – Looking for something a little sudsier than a red zinfandel? With dozens of breweries in attendance, the Niagara Food & Wine Expo is about more than just wine.
“We love to celebrate everything in the culinary scene at the Expo, which not only means beer from around the world, but also spirits from near and far as well,” said Jennifer Campbell, Show Manager of the Niagara Food & Wine Expo. “If wine isn’t your thing we have a great selection of breweries and spirits purveyors at the Expo this year.”
Among the beer exhibitors will be Carlsberg, Creemore Springs Brewery, Somersby Apple Cider, Kronenburg, Granville Island Brewery, McClelland’s full line up including Fruli and many more. For the more adventurous, be sure to check out Lake of Bays Brewing Company’s Mocha Porter which is made with roasted barley and chocolate malt, giving the beer a full, rich character, balanced by the addition of real ground coffee right into the mash.
Also not to be missed is the Coors Light Iced T Mobile Unit which will be parked inside the Expo and open for attendees to enjoy.
If cocktails or mixed drinks are more your thing, the Expo doesn’t stop at just food, wine and beer.
“The spirits offered at this year’s Niagara Food & Wine Expo is a great mix of classic favourites with some new offerings that may be a first taste for some,” said Campbell. “The Expo is the perfect chance to try out something new, especially a new whiskey, vodka or liqueur that you’ve always wanted to try but never had a chance.”
From the Canadian made Crystal Head Vodka and Collingwood Canadian Whisky to Italy’s Sophia’s Limoncello to France’s Hpnotiq to American classics like Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, Southern Comfort Fiery Pepper and Sinsations Decadent Dark Chocolate Martini, there is something for everyone.
Not to be forgotten is the always popular Tasting Stage with Mott’s Clamato which will be lead by Clint Pattemore, Caesar Mixing Officer for Clamato. This tasting stage demo offers the chance to learn how to make Canada’s favourite cocktail from the master himself.
“In addition to all of the fantastic drink options, we will also be featuring live music and entertainment throughout the entire Expo including the Copacabana’s Dance Migration’s Samba Dancers,” said Campbell.
Tickets to the show are $12 and available at NiagaraFoodandWine.ca.
