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 2018 we will be adding more festivals to our line-up.

The Ottawa Beer Festival is the largest beer festival in eastern Ontario. We're now entering our 9th year and have seen some 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 on craft beer, but  we also present a few international beers and some ciders. If you're interested in participating in the 2020 Ottawa Beer Fest, please e-mail us at:

The Whisky Ottawa Festival has brought together again more whiskys under one roof that has ever seen before in the Ottawa region.  The 6th edition of Whisky Ottawa was a sold out event! The Ottawa region once again showing it's love for whisky. The City of Ottawa is the second largest whisky market in Ontario. As our city grows and so does the services and entertainment within it, we have brought over 100 whiskys together for sampling at this years edition of Whiskey Ottawa. If you are interested in particiating in the 7th edition of Whisky Ottawa, please e-mail us at:


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.

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,
