TAPPED Truro Craft Beer Fest – Getting Hop Up in Hubtown!

You are invited to the 2nd largest beer fest in Nova Scotia where you can sample local and regional craft beers from Nova Scotia while enjoying delicious food, great entertainment, and exciting activities in the hub of Nova Scotia as TAPPED is part of the second segment of our 6-part Craft Brewing and Distilling Series.


TAPPED Truro Craft Beer Fest is back again for 2024 with a glow-in-the-dark edition! Join Triangle Events and their amazing team on Saturday, April 27th at the NSPE Complex, an Entertainment Complex in the Heart of Colchester County. 

This year’s TAPPED offers one amazing session with two ticket options, General Admission, and VIP.  The VIP gave attendees an extra hour for each session to share stories with local brewmasters, enjoy live music & catch up with friends all while discovering our incredible local craft beer scene.

General Admission tickets are available in advance and at the door on the day of the event.  Your tickets include access to the event, 10 samples, and a TAPPED take-home glass.  Don’t like waiting in long lineups? Then you need to purchase a VIP ticket?  The VIP tickets option gets you into the event an HOUR EARLY at 6pm plus three extra sample options which is a great way to get a few samples into you before the rest of the crowd joins in the festivities. 

Both ticket options of TAPPED offer a wide selection of close to 20 amazing local and regional breweries from all over Nova Scotia for you to sample like Coldstream Clear, which is based out of Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, expanded its operation to Truro in 2020, offering a variety of ready-to-drink (RTD), spirits, and beers that are all made with the finest ingredients and water from a natural artisan spring deep beneath rural Nova Scotia.  Coldstream is joined by regional breweries like Tatamagouche Brewing Company, which is a family-owned microbrewery located in the heart of Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, and Two Islands Brewing, which is a small craft brewery producing easy-drinking approachable beers and ales using only the finest ingredients with no added preservatives by a group of community-minded citizens from Parrsboro, Nova Scotia plus many more.

TAPPED also offers a limited number of Designated Driver ticket options for those looking to enjoy a fun night out with their friends but aren’t all that into drinking.   Plus, the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) and Truro Toyota are sponsoring and providing a shuttle service for TAPPED.   This is a free service and is available within 10km of the venue. But you will need to book these fast as there are only a limited amount, so make sure you get them before they’re gone!

This is a 19+ event; be sure to bring a government-issued ID.
