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 fourth 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.

Want more? You can upgrade your ticket to the VIP experience, which includes priority parking, express entry, a VIP seating area with coverage, VIP washrooms, exclusive VIP brews made just for this event, 4 extra tokens upon entry, and a full pint size glass as a thank you gift.

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 youth at risk of malnutrition.


Best of all is the difference well make. We donated $5,000 to Food4Kids in 2015, $15,000 in 2016, and $25,000 n 2017. In 2018, the sky is the limit!

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 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!
