Celebrating all things Hamilton / Welcome Message


Chow down and drink up!

Welcome to the eighth edition of HAMILTON CITY Magazine – our food and drink issue!

Who doesn’t love food and drink? And there is so much to talk about on the exciting and diverse Hamilton and Burlington culinary scene.

In this issue, Kris Osborne takes a deep dive into the local low- and no-alcohol scene. Plenty of people, for plenty of reasons, are cutting back on booze or cutting it out entirely. That doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy a sophisticated, tasty craft drink while out on the town. Bartenders such as Kyle Ferreira at Bar Sazerac, have lots of tricks up their light-on-liquor sleeves.

As you peruse this magazine, you’ll learn about Hamilton’s most important food families, how Stoney Creek wineries are reinventing themselves, and about local chefs who are sharing their love and knowledge of food with those who want to be better cooks.

This edition also highlights the incredible work of McQuesten Urban Farm in growing food for its community and De Mazenod Door in providing meals for the most vulnerable among us.

And we also feature brilliant bakeries, the great foodie district of King William Street and the local eateries where time stands still.

There is so much more to enjoy in this issue – so please dig in!
