Despite a Friday night storm, the tenth edition of Beau's Oktoberfest in Vankleek Hill attracted 17,000 who helped raise $94,323 for non-profit organizations, bringing the total raised in 10 years to $711,212.

"Our 10th edition of Oktoberfest had some exhilarating highs and some extreme-weather-related challenges," notes Beau's co-founder Steve Beauchesne. "We kept our guests safe during the storm and made the most of a difficult situation Friday, and on Saturday when the sky cleared we had an amazing time and did a lot of good. I'm looking forward to what the next 10 years of Oktoberfest will bring."

Beau's Brewery of Vankleek Hill has received another honour.

The Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts (CHCA) at George Brown College has designated the company as a “Canadian Treasure,” an initiative launched in 2017 through which the accomplishments of culinary, hospitality, and tourism trailblazers across Canada are recognized and celebrated. Beau’s co-founder and CEO Steve Beauchesne accepted the award at a ceremony in Toronto last week, where Beau’s was honoured for its award-winning and certified organic craft beer, its commitment to being family-run and independent, and its consideration for the environment and local communities.
