Students had the opportunity to learn more about the local breweries in the London area at this year's Craft Beer Festival. A number of local breweries attended this year's festival in the hopes of gaining recognition and attraction from those on campus.
Admission to the event was free and students could pay $2 for a cup of beer made by local brewing companies. In addition, the event had some live music for attendees to listen to while sipping on their craft beers.
Some of the local breweries that attended the event included the Railway City Brewing Company, Anderson Craft Ales, Toboggan Brewing Company, Big Rig Brewery Inc., New Limburg Brewery Company and Forked River Brewery Company.
Students also had the chance taste test the Legacy Lager, a craft beer produced by the Railway City Brewing Company to commemorate Fanshawe's 50th anniversary. This beer was part of a partnership between the College and the brewery.
“It's a great way to showcase some local breweries to our students so they can get more involved with and learn more about local breweries,” Tyler Hetherington, FSU's events and programs co-ordinator said.
