There are two seasons in North Vancouver: winter, and beer festivals.
On Friday, April 14, Brewhalla beer and music festival is kicking off the latter, returning to The Shipyards for its second year.
The popular event will welcome more than 30 B.C. craft breweries, cideries and distilleries. Those include local favourites Braggot Brewing, La Cerveceria Asterillos, North Point Brewing, Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers, Copperpenny Distilling, Shaketown Brewing and Wildeye Brewing.
Expanding its drink offerings to a broader range of preferences, the festival is adding a number of non-alcoholic beverages this year.
On the live music side, the festival lineup includes Vince Vaccaro, NADUH, DJ Paisley Eva, DJ A-SLAM, Best Night Ever, The Dial Tones, and Wasakaka All-Stars.
“We can’t wait to bring Brewhalla back to this picturesque location,” said Red Door Events spokesperson Lies Reimer. “The Shipyards Brewery District has created an amazing craft culture here, please come and join us as we sample amazing beverages from the North Shore and beyond!”
Tickets can be bought online for $45, and include admission, a four-ounce commemorative tasting glass and three tasting tokens.
The North Vancouver festival is presented by The Quay Market & Food Hall. Other Brewhalla events are coming up in Fort Langley, Port Moody and Cloverdale.
