(Christmas Craft Beer Show/Facebook)

Who says beer is just a summer drink?!

For the past two years, the Christmas Craft Beer Show has been introducing ales and ciders to the holiday season, giving patrons a chance to taste all the local brews they can physically handle.

The organizers of the show also make sure they have plenty of hot, greasy bar food and live entertainment (courtesy of local band, SuperSauce) at hand for the ultimate beer show experience.

In fact, you can read a blog post about our experience at the event here to get a better idea of what it’s like!

This year, a mix of almost 50 BC breweries and cideries have confirmed their attendance at the annual show.
