Collective Arts Brewing Presents the 2nd Annual Liquid Art Festival.

50+ Brewers. 2 Days. 3 Sessions. Live Art. Live Music.

The Liquid Art Fest is back! Celebrate international beer, art, and music at the Collective Arts Brewery on June 14 & 15, 2019. Featuring live mural artists and live music, art galleries, screen printing, food trucks, and of course over 50 of our favourite brewer friends from around the world. Each brewery will be bringing and pouring their most unique and rare beers. This is a 19+ event.

The Liquid Art Festival is ‘all-inclusive’ this year! This means no more worrying about change, lost or unused tokens, and no waiting in token lines. You arrive, receive a glass, and start sampling stress free. Your ticket will provide you with open access to all the beers at the festival. We encourage everyone to enjoy all of the delicious brews responsibly, and note that all of our pourers are smart serve certified and will not serve you if you are intoxicated. There are Designated Driver tickets available!

General Admission (GA) tickets include entry to the festival and a sample glass (5 oz).
Mothership tickets include early entry to the festival and a sample glass (5 oz.)

Each session will feature a different headlining band and DJ. This year’s festival will include two stages, the lineups for both stages have been announced:

Each session will showcase different brews from over 50 international breweries. There will be cider too for all our gluten free friends plus our Collective Arts Distilling gin and we’ve even got a winery setting up shop!

Check out the brewers we’ve announced and look out for more brewery lineup announcements on our social media channels. The beer list will be announced the week before the festival.

Live mural artists will paint over 2,000 sq ft of our brewery walls while the crowd below watches.
