A new festival for fans of sipping good brews while listening to good tunes is coming to North Vancouver.
The Brewhalla Beer and Music Festival will hit The Shipyards on the North Vancouver waterfront Friday, Oct. 7. Beverages from more than 20 different local craft breweries, cideries and wineries will be featured, including such North Shore favourites as Bridge, Beere, North Point, Wildeye, and Shaketown Brewing, La Cerveceria Astilleros, Garden of Granite Winery, Copperpenny Distilling and Windfall Cider.
“The North Shore beer scene has exploded in the last few years and we’re excited to feature the breweries that call North Vancouver home, while also giving breweries from outside the city the opportunity to showcase their products,” said event manager Hannah Brown.
The drinks will be accompanied by a lineup of local musicians on two stages, including Caleb Hart, Trilojay, Olin Brix, Chersea, DJ Flipout, and the Ryan McAllister Band. Food trucks will also be on site to keep festival-goers fed.
General admission tickets, with prices starting at around $60, include admission to the festival, a tasting glass and three drink tokens, along with access to the food trucks, music and brews. Tickets are also available as a “6 Pack”: buy five and get one free. Additional drink tokens will be for sale on the festival grounds. The event will be held rain or shine, with festival locations inside the Pipe Shop as well as in the covered area of the Shipyards that houses the skating rink in winter.
The North Vancouver festival is presented by The Quay Market & Food Hall. Similar Brewhalla festivals were held in Fort Langley in May and Port Moody in August, with another to be held indoors at The Agriplex in Cloverdale on Saturday Oct. 29.
