Marché des Brasseurs raises funds for Ottawa Riverkeeper

The family friendly Marché des Brasseurs (Brewery Market in Québec) is supporting efforts to preserve the Ottawa River by donating all their proceeds to Ottawa Riverkeeper. Reminding everyone that it takes clean water to make quality, craft beer!

Marché des Brasseurs (Brewery Market in Québec) took place on July 4th at Hendrick Farm in Old Chelsea, Quebec. The event welcomed guests of all ages (and dogs!)  from across the National Capital Region to the picturesque Quebec countryside for an afternoon of relaxation including some of the best brews in the province and delicious food.

This fun-filled day was part of The Brewery Market’s series of events that were inspired by farmer’s markets, meaning that throughout the day guests were able to interact directly with brewers and learn about their craft. This close community spirit between brewers and enthusiasts created a casual atmosphere throughout the event. On tap guests were treated to Les Brasseurs du Temps, Le Castor, Dunham, Microbrasserie Goudale and Gainsbourg.

Hendrick Farm is a special venue for events like Marché des Brasseurs to take place because of its beauty and commitment to maintaining a vibrant  community while respecting its history and environment. Acres of open greenspace mixed with homes and an organic farm make it a great escape from the city for all those attending.

Guests were kept well fed by Maison du Village, Patisserie La Toque, and Tante Carole. The upscale yet accessible food kept whole families happy throughout the afternoon.
