Baker's Beer Tasting Celebration
June 07, 2017
Baker's Beer Tasting Celebration came together when we realized that Jay Baker, Baker the Freeloader from FM 96 in London, Ontario, was a huge beer enthusiast and used to write a beer blog. We decided that we could partner up and help expose more people to awesome craft beer scene and the great culinary team at Beertown London – what better way to get people talking then, to pair beer and food?! Bakers Beertown Blog was born and the first event came together.
The event was a fantastic collaboration of delicious craft beers from Forked River Brewing Company, Anderson's Craft Beer, Cowbell Brewing Co., Railway City Brewing Company and the Beertown Culinary team lead by Chef Todd Clarmo!
4 inspired courses, 4 fantastical beers, and a great setting lead to a memorable night for everyone involved. Maybe you might win tickets to the next event in July. Listen to London's Best Rock FM 96 for your chance to win!
