Beer Events

The Wickson Social is dedicated to the very best of local beer. There are currently 242 brewing companies registered in Ontario, and that number is constantly growing. We search tirelessly to procure excellent beer, both from established operations and promising up-and-comers – always local; always independent. On each visit, you can expect the freshest new offerings on draught, or a thoughtful selection from our bottle cellar.
