One of the biggest craft beer festivals on the West Coast is happening next week, and it’s well worth a trip over to the mainland!
Over 100 breweries and cideries will be gathering in Vancouver for this 9th annual showcase of their talented beverages. They’ll be kicking off with a party at the Maritime Labour Centre on May 25th, and continue the festivities at various city-wide venues and events through the week.
There’s also a festival with music, food trucks, and more beer than you could ever drink, on June 2nd and 3rd.
Of course, there is no craft beer celebration without the ciders and ales of Vancouver Island, which is why our island breweries and their iconic drinks will be well represented at the festival.
