Cornwall Ontario – The Summer Beer Fest has a new location and an expanded line-up of entertainment.

The festival that celebrates local craft beer will be held in Lamoureux Park on Satuday June 24th. . Hot off the release of his 15th studio album “Greatful”,  two-time Juno Award winner Classified will headline a long list of entertainment that includes rising star Melanie Brulée.

“We’re thrilled to have Classified headline the Summer Beer Fest concert,” said Sébastien Manigat, Director of the Seaway Food Festival. “We knew we wanted a big, fresh, Canadian sound to help celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. Booking Classified was the perfect fit.”

Of course, the main attraction will still be the experience of sampling new craft beer as well as tasty samples from local restaurants and the fast-growing craft beer market.  Participating breweries include Cornwall’s very own Rurban Brewery as well as Cassel Brewery in Casselman and Beau’s in Vankleek Hill.

“Beer Fest has emerged as a showcase of what’s best about our region and community,” says Mr. Manigat.

Over 2000 people are expected to attend.
