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 a well-established event in our community, 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. 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.

Because we know you love beer! And 100% of proceeds go to local charities supported by the four service clubs. Our main feature charity this year is Food4Kids North Halton, a group that provides food for local youth at risk of malnutrition.


Best of all is the difference we’ll make. We donated $5,000 to Food4Kids in 2015, $15,000 in 2016, and $25,000 in 2017, and $31,500 in 2018. What will this number be in 2019? You decide!

We 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. In 2018 we expanded our charities to include Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills, Georgetown Hospital Foundation, and Trafalgar Sports Park Field of Dreams Project. 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, celebrate our 5th anniversary, and keep that donation number growing!
