Hike then Pints with HBBCo. Once a month, we'll head out on a local trail to explore and enjoy our beautiful area. After the hike, we'll go back to the brewery for pints (and other refreshments). This is a family-friendly activity - we'll have refreshments and activities for them. Sunday, May 7, around 1pm. FYI - we need to know who to tell where to meet, so email us to register. 

We've Got Game...Night. We like old school games, so we're willing to stay open late once a month to encourage others to play them too. Mille Bornes, Scrabble, Crokinole - play one of our favourites or bring your own. Friday, May 12, between 6-8pm. Registration appreciated.

Paint Your Pet with Laura Stevens. Let Laura teach you to get started and be confident in your creativity. This intimate workshop provides you with the skills to really explore painting. Instruction, supplies, 20oz draught beer, and light refreshments are included in the cost ($80 + tax). ​Thursday, May 18, 5:30-8:00pm. 

​Craft + Beer Night. Join fellow crafters for enjoyable brews and creativity. Craft + Beer usually takes place on the last Thursday of the month. We've got lots of cool crafts planned, plus excellent company! Thursday, May 25, 5-8pm. Registration required. Fee TBD and includes all the supplies and one 12oz draught pour. 

A Humble Celebration - Five Years & Still Pouring. It's hard to believe, but five years ago we were celebrating our official grand opening! This year, we're taking the brewery to Lunenburg, for "A Humble Celebration", to mark five years of brews and that we're still pouring! Come hang out with us on June 3, from 2-7pm. Enjoy music from The Glengarry Ramblers and food available for purchase from The Creek Bistro Pub and Market and Boulangerie Swiss Farmer Bakery. Tickets are only $22 and include one drink token, a soft pretzel, celebration cup, and a donation to cystic fibrosis research. (It's not a Humble event without supporting a good cause!) Tickets are available online (eventbrite.ca/e/a-humble-celebration-five-years-still-pouring-tickets-632744916077) or in the taproom. This is a family friendly celebration; talk to us if you have anyone underage that is coming with you. A shuttle will also be available from the brewery to the celebration site in Lunenburg (must be booked in advance). Cheers to five years!
