District Ontario​​​​

​About District Ontario

The Ontario District of the MBAA is a vibrant community of brewers, suppliers, and persons associated with brewing beer and seltzer in Ontario.  Originally created in 1914 as the Master Brewers Association of Canada, the organization became part of the Master Brewers Association of the Americas in 1935, transforming into the MBAA Ontario District.  The MBAA Ontario District is known for the following major events:  

  • Annual Ontario Technical Conference (OTC), held on the last week of January each year. This event combines high-quality technical content, networking, and tours.
  • Annual Golf Tournament, which raises money for educational scholarships.
  • Iron Brewer Competition, held on a Friday in the latter half of September each year.  
  • Annual General Meeting, held in November each year.
  • Technical Social events on an occasional basis (where members can learn technical information on brewing and brewing related topics while also having a social event afterward).
  • Webinars on technical topics. 

Most events are located in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), Guelph, and Niagara areas. We also offer periodic webinars.  

Besides joining the MBAA and getting access to ​resources (e.g. Technical Quarterly), membership in the MBAA Ontario District allows you access to an active community of enthusiastic brewers and suppliers.  Following the MBAA motto of "United We Brew", we all work together to promote the production of high quality beer and beverages.
