I have a lot of ‘favourite’ events throughout the year here in Thunder Bay, but I think the BrewHa Craft Beer Festival at Prince Arthur’s Landing is up there as one of the best. Each year I’m more and more impressed with the vendors and also the people who attend. It’s such a chill and relaxed atmosphere and combine that with live music playing in the background by local bands, and you really can’t go wrong.
Each year in August this event takes place and there are 3 sessions. This time around I made it to the first two, which took place on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. I most likely would have went to the Saturday evening session but I had a beautiful wedding in Murillo I photographed.
That was more than enough time to get lots of great photos for The Walleye and video as well. Speaking of video, you can view the short promo video I did for the event under my videos here on my website. Back to the photos, there were lots of them! I have long since gotten past my fear of approaching people in public and asking for their photos. That’s what happens when you photograph weddings for a living. You either get used to interacting with strangers or you are doomed! Almost everyone I asked was game for a photo.
I of course captured a ton of photos of the breweries in attendance too. It goes without saying that I sampled some beer too. You know, to get the ‘full experience’. I’m already looking forward to next years event, and I guess for now, I’ll have to pour my store bought beer in the little keep sake glasses handed out at the event, to make it feel like I’m still there.
