Knowledgeable Consumption is a Not-for-profit organization that is operating and developing Ottawa’s premiered beverage festivals. We currently have two festivals that we deliver to the Ottawa region. In 2015 we will be adding two more festivals to our line-up.

Our leading festival is the Ottawa Craft Beer Festival (formerly the National Capital Craft Beer Festival). We are entering into our fourth year and we have seen amazing growth. The support from the industry as well as our community has shown that this is a festival that will lead the community for many years to come. The festivals main focus is on craft beer we also present a few international beers and some ciders to ensure everybody has something to enjoy.

The Whisky Ottawa Festival has brought together more whiskeys under one roof that has ever seen before in the Ottawa region. This first edition Whiskey Ottawa Festival has been a long time coming. The City of Ottawa is the second largest whiskey market in Ontario. As our city grows and so dose the services and entertainment within it, we have brought over 70 whiskeys together for sampling at this first edition Whiskey Ottawa Festival. Whiskey Ottawa another premier festival that is going to grow to great success in the Ottawa market.

Combining all types of beers, coolers both wine and spirits, ciders of all types as well as barbecue foods and other summer menu delights.

Our fourth Festival is a winter festival that brings together Craft Beer, Cider and warmth is required. It's important to have some fun in the winter. We are working towards bringing everybody together for a couple of beers or a warm cider and enjoy being out of the house in the middle of February. Stay tuned more information will be coming.

Within all of our festivals our team applies their many years of experience into creating experiential atmosphere for our visitors, vendors and our sponsors. Creating a balance that works for all stakeholders involved is vital and delicate at the same time.

To Whom It May Concern:

Within the development and delivery of these festivals we naturally have a goal of balancing budgets. We also have other goals stated here in our Mission Statement.

To provide effective guidance for people with special needs

to live healthy, active lives!

To achieve these goals in our Mission Statement is it important that we build strong relationships. It is never easy to please all the people all the time, but it is easy to ensure that everyone is properly informed and there is an opportunity to discuss situations and resolve them in a fair and equitable manner. I find it extremely important when building business relationships to be clear and transparent with all communication. At the end of the day I believe we all have the same goals to present our product to the public in a professional manner keeping in mind our budgets.

I look forward to discussing opportunities with you at any time.
Thank you for your interest and support,
