Tap Review: Ottawa Beer Fest 2017

This past weekend was the sixth annual Ottawa Beer Fest (formerly the Ottawa Craft Beer Festival) and it proved to be nothing less than action packed and full of friends, fun, and frustrating weather. Although we eventually were taken down by mother nature mid-day on Sunday by having our tent almost ripped away from us, Saturday saw enough action that our hearts were left toasty warm and a we now have a whole new book of friends!

Yoga on Tap had the pleasure of attending the festival to provide three different attractions: Private Yoga on Tap with Tooth and Nail Brewery beer tasting, operating a Beer Yoga Booth serving up local brews from Hintonburg’s Tooth and Nail, and providing the beer loving runners of the Ottawa Craft Beer Run with some post-run stretching and sipping!


WEEKEND TAP LIST: 

 

  1. STAMINA Belgian Inspired Session Ale 4.6%

  2. VIM & VIGOR Pilsner 5.2%

  3. TENACITY Pale Ale 5.5%

  4. RABBLE-ROUSER India Pale Ale 6.8%


We started the Saturday session bright and early at 10AM with 48 souls pairing yoga and beer together under Aberdeen Pavilion before moving outdoors at 11AM to our Beer Yoga Booth serving up 4 samples of Tooth and Nail. Because the festival just opened at 11AM we got to get the party started at our tent with our gang of beer yogis. It was so great to get to chat with so many of our participants and even had a few people trying yoga for their first time ever with us. This happens all the time I’m sure but not everyone comes up to share their experience with us! Cheers to everyone who came out to open the festival with us this Saturday with Yoga on Tap! I hope you enjoyed the rest of the festival!

We had a big booth space beside the food trucks where one side was dedicated to selling samples of 4 Tooth and Nail beers with the other side hosting a lounge space for people to mingle, relax, or learn to mindfully experience their beer. It was on the opposite side of the main stage so that if people wanted some space to sip and interact with their beers or each other, they had a welcoming opportunity! We saw lots of different characters under our tent throughout the weekend and each one of them left a lasting impression 🙂

A huge thanks goes out to our OMazing festival volunteers who consisted of Run to Beer friends and new faces from out in the yoga/beer community of Ottawa! We couldn’t have done it without you! We are grateful to Ottawa Beer Festival for allowing us to run our unique programming at their annual event, to Tooth and Nail Brewery for selling us their product and trusting us to add value to their brand, to the Ottawa Craft Beer Run for having us host the post-run yoga, and to all of the festival staff and volunteers for your countless support throughout the weekend. Big cheers and thumbs up to you all!
