An award-winning Ontario craft brewery has been named the official beer sponsor of the 2015 TD Niagara Jazz Festival.

Mill Street Brewery will see its beer poured at all of the TD Niagara Jazz Festival free stages, all smaller venues over the festival weekend, and at fundraisers leading up to the main event.

2015 marks the festival’s second year and it will be held July 23 to 26 at various indoor and outdoor venues throughout Niagara.

“We love that the TD Niagara Jazz Festival combines live music with a unique experience – food, brew, culture and natural wonders. Mill Street is proud to showcase our award-winning, organic beer in one of Ontario’s most beautiful settings this summer,” said Steve Abrams, co-founder of Mill Street Brewery.

Juliet Dunn, jazz festival executive director, said the festival is thrilled to have Mill Street Brewery join as our official beer sponsor.
