Local food meets craft beer at Cornwall’s Summer Beer Fest
Cornwall, ONT., June 18, 2015: Cornwall’s Inaugural Summer Beer Fest, created by the Seaway Food Festival, is proud to announce the list of local food vendors participating in the festivities. Summer Beer Fest celebrates the Ontario craft beer scene as well as Cornwall’s local food scene. We are so excited to announce the exceptional businesses from our community who will be participating in this unique experience: Love Love Food, Truffles Burger Bar, Mindful Cookery, Schnitzel’s, Jet Set Pub, and Bar Q.
At the event, guests will be able to purchase $2 coupons that can be exchanged for alcoholic samples and/or food items. All local vendors will be selling food items at varying prices ($2, $4, $6, or $8). Within this structure, we want to offer our guests not only an interactive beer-sampling event, but also a tremendous culinary experience. Organizer of Summer Beer Fest and Founder & Director of the Seaway Food Festival, Sebastien Manigat, adds: “At the outset, this event’s goal was to showcase what’s best about our region and community. By marrying our tremendous craft beer industry and our city’s exceptional culinary talents, we believe we have achieved that. This is going to be a great day for our community’s beer lovers and foodies alike!”
Newcomers to the Seaway Food Festival community, Love Love Food and Mindful Cookery, will be displaying an array of delectable delights during the festivities. Love Love Food is a gourmet café and bistro located in the heart of downtown Cornwall, specializing in custom cakes, cupcakes & desserts. In addition to gourmet sandwiches, soups, coffees, salads, they also have daily specials that are sure to please your inner foodie. Mindful Cookery is the brainchild of three friends (Jennifer, Rachel, and Joey), whose passion for healthy food brought them to open up this unique shop in Cornwall. Mindful cookery is a wholesome food grocery store, premium coffee shop, and homemade lunchspot. During the Summer Beer Fest, Mindful Cookery will partner with Bar Q to deliver a unique beer-inspired menu.
