23 Apr Doc’side Pairings
#HotDocs & Cold Beers go so well together, we’ve compiled a thoughtful list of “doc’side” pairings.
Fresh ideas deserve fresh beer! For four years running, we’ve been proud to celebrate the Hot Docs Film Festival with a community that shares our passion for creativity and innovation. The Hot Docs Film Festival is the largest in North America, drawing inspiration from across the globe. We’ve put together our top picks from this year’s festival and paired them with each of the beers you’ll get in our tasting + glassware + streaming kit.
