Showcasing Ontario products at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario was an initiative started by the Hon. Steve Peters, former Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario (2007 – 2011).
As a part of this initiative, current Speaker Dave Levac hosted the annual Ontario Craft Beer Selection and Tasting at Queen’s Park on Monday, March 17, 2014. Members and Staff of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario voted on 6 different categories of Ontario Craft Beers which included 89 beers entered by 23 different Ontario Craft Breweries.
In collaboration with the Ontario Craft Brewers, the 89 beers at the event were chosen for consideration based on their quality and availability. Six categories were chosen to illustrate the great variety, colour, taste and styles available from the Ontario Craft Brewers.
The selections illustrate the great variety of ales, lagers, golden and dark beers, all produced by Ontario Craft Brewers.
