If you are looking to get into the Festival of Beer in the Sault, it’s sold out.
“7-8-900 people have come through,” said Edie Suriano, marketing and promotions coordinator for the Bushplane Museum, where the event is being held ’til 7 p.m. tonight.
Stephanie Poitras of the Manitoulin Brewing Co. was on hand to chat. As well was owner, Blair Hagman, who had quite a line up at around 3 p.m.
“It’s quite a venue,” Hagman said commenting on being in the Bushplane Museum for the first time as a vendor.
Their table saw at least a couple hundred customers by 3 p.m.
Their choice ale: Swingbridge Blond.
The first beer launched last June for the company.
They are currently working to get the beer in Sault Ste. Marie as it is already in 26 bars and restaurants in Sudbury and Manitoulin.
There was lots of smiles and pats on the back coming in and out of the festival.
“See.. I’m proud to host this,” said Suriano. “It’s a great day for it!”
