A stand-out amongst ‘stand-ups’…

Who says you have to wait until May 2-4 to crack open Muskoka-time? On March 7, 2020 some of Ontario’s finest craft breweries are heading north for the first ever BEERHURST-at-DEERHURST, a new craft beer festival hosted by and at Deerhurst Resort. Of course, several of the breweries are also located in Muskoka and area, adding to the cottage country vibe of the event, which will be headlined by Dwayne Gretzky, Toronto’s popular live music collective.
“Craft beer and live music know no boundaries when it comes to seasons, “says Deerhurst Resort General Manager, Jesse Hamilton. “After putting together the Deerhurst Beer Bus package last fall where guests were shuttled to local breweries – which sold out in a heartbeat – we wanted to expand the fun with a full blown craft beer festival and bring all the breweries together here in one place.”
Classic Albums Live and its roster of A-list musicians from across the country will be performing Pink Floyd’s The Wall exactly as you remember hearing it, note for note, cut for cut.
Some of the most talented performers to hit the stage will be performing the album Wish you Were Here, note for note, cut for cut. The album, although not initially received with great fanfare, has retrospectively been hailed as one of the greatest albums of all time.
Toronto’s favourite music collective, Dwayne Gretzky is returning to the Deerhurst stage to headline the BEERHURST-at-DEERHURST Craft Beer Festival. Whether you come for the beer and other craft beverages or just for the music, you’re guaranteed a great night!
