Our Story

We like beer,
you like beer. . .

we all want to
drink beer!

And thus… Head for the Hills, the Georgetown Craft Beer Festival, was born…

Well, actually, there was a little more to it than that. Want to learn more about the awesomeness that led to the creation of this cool event? Keep scrolling!


The four service clubs of Georgetown (Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis& Kinsmen) united to launch Georgetown’s first ever Craft Beer Festival in 2015. Head for the Hills is entirely volunteer-run and benefits local charities.

Beer + charity = win. Now in its third year, Head for the Hills is a late-Summer staple not to be missed.


Head for the Hills is a day of craft beer & cider sampling, gourmet food, and live music in the beautiful countryside. Recently voted the #1 beer festival in Ontario, Head for the Hills is a guaranteed good time rain or shine (…seriously, we can prove that).

Admission includes a customized Head for the Hills beer stein and 4 tokens for 4 samples of beer or cider. Additional tokens are available for purchase on-site, 3 tokens for $5.

Canada’s sweet 150
& Head for the hills

Canadians like beer, eh?

In January 2017, Head for the Hills received the Arts Alive Canada 150 award for the best New Cultural Event in Halton Hills. This award recognizes a group or event that is contributing significantly to the cultural landscape of our community.

What better way to celebrate our nation’s big b-day than by raising a glass with friends against the beautiful backdrop of our rural town? Let’s celebrate what Canada is known for: good scenery, good beer, and a good time!


Best of all is the difference well make. In 2015, we donated $5,000 to Food4Kids. In 2016, we donated $15,000 to Food4Kids. In 2017, the sky is the limit!

We tripled our donation amount last year and want to keep the momentum going. Head for the Hills is an entirely volunteer-run event and 100% of proceeds are donated to Food4Kids as well as a variety of other local charities already supported by the four service clubs of Georgetown. There really isn’t a better reason to come drink good beer with friends.

There are plenty of opportunities to support this cause throughout the event. By purchasing tickets, tokens, swag, and game passes, you are helping us make a greater contribution to this small community than ever before. Our goal this year: have fun, stay dry, and keep that donation number growing!
