If you were in Hamilton, Ontario this past November 14th and 15th, you may have been at our brewery Open House and Bash in collaboration with Nickel Brook Brewing. If you weren’t? Read on to get the details of what went down on one of our most epic weekends to-date:

To say we were pleasantly overwhelmed by the number of people who came out to support our brewery is a vast understatement. Awe-struck is more like it. The amount of love we received from the Hamilton community, artists, musicians and craft beer drinkers from the city and beyond was nothing short of amazing. So much so that we had to extend our Open House to Sunday, too!

We also want to extend a special thank you to the bands that played some fantastic live music throughout both Open Houses and our Bash In The Brewery Saturday night: Bravestation, Sarah Burton, The Knads, ZEUS, Hamilton’s WTCHS, BIG LONELY & GOOD GHOST. Max Kerman of ARKELLS helped bring our (brew) house down with a history-making performance with our headliners, HOLLERADO. DIGITS provided the tunes in between.

We hope you enjoyed drinking our beers, listening to some live music, eating delicious food from local vendors and food trucks Butcher & The Vegan, Mulberry Coffeehouse, Gorilla Cheese, The Flying Potato, Cusina A Go-Go, Jonny Blonde and MeatVentures, and touring our brewing facilities!

TOURS!
Speaking of, we are now open for tours! To book yours (weekends only for now), email: brewery@collectiveartsbrewing.com.

Thank you all again so much. We look forward to celebrating more milestones with you and couldn’t be happier to officially be a part of Hamilton’s cultural revival and growth.

Cheers!
