    Icon Beer Where/when does the event Start?

    Come join us down at Remic Rapids - 351 Ottawa River Pkwy (Remic Rapids - what!) at 11:00am but the first wave pre-party starts at 11:10am!  Although we encourage carpooling or having someone drop you off, there will be access to the parking lot at Tunney's Pasture along Parkdale Ave. The parking is free, but there is NO OVERNIGHT parking! To make this even easier, we've set up a drop-off circle right at the start line!

    All breweries will be showcasing their finest hand crafted beers and have its own unique atmosphere that will energize you for the next leg of the route. Live entertainment, fresh air, beer education, brewery tours, beer games and of drinking!

    Icon Beer The Finish Line!!! And Transportation?

    This is in fact a GREAT question. As you know this an alcoholic event so we will not be shuttling anyone back to their cars. Our recommendation for the day is to have a friend or family member pick you up at the Finish and drop you off at the start OR bus, taxi, walk, bike, crawl to your closest and safest destination. You could even have a combination of all of them! Carpool! Thanks so much for understanding.
