Funk & Bier2
A second edition of Funk&Bier Edmundston, Northwestern New Brunswick’s own craft beer festival, will finally take place on September 10, 2022, after a two-year break imposed by the pandemic.As in its first edition, the Funk&Bier will take place under a large tent near the microbrewery Les Brasseurs du Petit-Sault, 45 de l'Église Street, in downtown Edmundston. More than twenty microbreweries from the East have been invited.
Organizers are hopeful that by September 2022, the pandemic situation will have calmed down to the point where it will be possible to present the second edition of the festival, without too many health restrictions. However, the committee will make sure to apply any sanitary guidelines recommendations that may be required by Public Health.
This festival was born from the desire of a group of volunteers who love good beer and good music to offer a new event to fill the calendar of fall activities in Edmundston. In its first edition, the Funk&Bier was a great success. In fact, the 150 VIP tickets available were sold out in barely 24 hours.
The Grand Tasting will take place between 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Afterwards, it's on to the Bier Garden (paying) with a great funk music show (band to be announced later). VIP ticket holders are welcome on site at 3 pm to gain more intimate access to the brewers. They will also receive a 14 oz. tasting glass and some “funky” swag. Regular ticket holders have access to the site from 4pm. They will receive a 4 oz. tasting glass. Tickets are available for people who only wish to attend the show and the Bier Garden.
See you September 10th in downtown Edmundston for an event featuring the best craft beers in the East, great Funk music and great people!
