Toronto and Buffalo, NY – Craft brewers from Ontario and New York State are teaming up to launch a first annual beer fest scheduled for April 7, 2018.

The Can-Am Craft Beer Festival, the first of its kind, was announced on April 26, 2017. The announcement was made at a special event where brewers from Southern Ontario and Western New York were paired up and challenged to create draft brews that will be unveiled at the festival.

In a statement, the Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association says the pairings were decided via a draft process where dignitaries and tourism officials pulled brewers’ logos of the participating breweries from oak barrels. The breweries will then be matched up on a draft board.
