More than 20,000 festival-goers helped Beau’s Brewery set a new record for fundraising at the 9th annual Beau’s Oktoberfest: $100,205. Held in the village of Vankleek Hill in Eastern Ontario, the festival also set a record for attendance over the two days it was held (Sept. 22-23). In addition to celebrating Bavarian culture, craft beer and community, Beau’s Oktoberfest is the annual signature fundraising event for local craft brewery Beau’s.
