“I’m excited about what this town has to offer when it comes to craft breweries,” said Jon Cote, the owner and head chef of Craft Corner Kitchen. “To be part of the whole thing is an honour.”

Tin Whistle Brewing is taking over the taps of the Craft Corner Kitchen, and pouring the special collaboration brew made by the seven local craft breweries. Craft Corner Kitchen is also offering an early diners special on show night for $15 beer, burger, and fries.
