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 Brewers' Event at Queen’s Park on Monday, March 20, 2017. Members and staff of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario voted on six categories of Ontario Craft Beers which included 100 beers entered by 32 Ontario Craft Breweries.
In collaboration with the Ontario Craft Brewers, the 100 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.
