A new era for SESSION – TAPS Media Acquires SESSION

TAPS Media is pleased to announce the acquisition of SESSION Craft Beer Festivals (Toronto & Muskoka). This year marks the 10th anniversary of SESSION and effective Feb 1st, 2018, TAPS Media has assumed stewardship of these wonderful festivals.

How it began…

In 2008 Jed Corbeil and Curt Dunlop saw a need for a craft beer renaissance in Muskoka. After opening Muskoka’s first craft beer pub (The Griffin), they expanded their passion for craft beer, music and artisanal food in August of 2009, creating the Muskoka Beer Festival. Over the next 9 years they brought thousands of craft beers, ciders, wine, and spirits to an ever-growing craft-loving crowd. The festival, now known as SESSION Muskoka, is a staple for beer, food and music lovers.

In 2010, Ontario Craft Beer Week was created, and they saw an opportunity to bring SESSION to Toronto. Over the past 8 years, SESSION Toronto has enjoyed exponential growth and is currently held at Yonge & Dundas Square in Toronto. It is the impressive grand opening event for Ontario Craft Beer Week.

President of TAPS Media, Rob Engman says, “We are so proud to accept the torch and move forward with the great events that Griffin Events have curated so well over the past decade”

Jed and Curt wish the team at TAPS all the success in the world and will be in full support of these events moving forward.

TAPS Media is excited about this new addition to our group of companies and for the future of these superb craft beer events.
