In addition to the two Grand Tastings, the Craft Beer Attraction includes a limited attendance Premium Tour of 21 beer with Certified Cicerone Mike Buhler, the opportunity for a very limited number of guests to taste the legendary Utopias (our apologies on the limited attendance but this is a very rare product) and a Brewmaster’s Luncheon at the Merchant Tavern with Trou du Diable.

This event is not a drink-all-you-can-fest. Each 50 ml sample will be priced based upon the retail price at the NLC. Full, open bottles sold in the lounge will be discounted.


  • Local breweries will participate including Mill Street, Port Rexton, Quidi Vidi, and YellowBelly.
  • The event program and map will include a section for each guest to vote for the beer of the show. Awards for first, second, and third will be presented to the winning breweries and those who attend the event will be notified by e-mail of the three winners. The results of the voting will be used to assist in future beer club offerings.
  • There will be supplies of Pearl Springs water and non-alcohol beer available in the Grand Tastings. However, please plan your transportation so as to not drive when you leave the tasting. There will be a taxi company available in the parking lot.
  • There will be an ATM located in the lounge.
  • The NLC policy of check ID for persons under 25 will be followed and you must be 19 to enter the tasting events.
  • Security services will be provided by Security Solutions NL.
