Hopwired: Coffee and craft beer collab event debuts in Vancouver


Coffee and beer aren’t strangers, and to prove the point, an upcoming event will showcase just how delightful the two beverages are together and on their own.

Called Hopwired, this new drink (and food) festival is purported to be Canada’s largest craft beer collaboration event.
