A big haul for Newlands customers all around. And the biggest honour of the show: Brewery of the Year went to Side Launch Brewing Company, brewing on their Newlands System:

It’s not just the competition – the craft beer community in Canada gets stronger ever year and the awards show is a big part of that. Thank you to the organizers, participants and attendees for making it such a success. We’ll be back again next year and you’ll see lots more Newlands customers on the podium.
