Beer Fest

Dubbed the “largest celebration of craft beer on Cape Breton Island,” this inaugural Cape Breton Beer Fest is about more than the frosty brews on tap. Featuring an assortment of craft and microbreweries, the festival also aims to celebrate Cape Breton culture, music and food. The festival will be split into an afternoon session (2-4:30 p.m.) and an evening session (7-9:30 p.m.) today.
