Fan of fruit beers? You may want to check out this summer's Fruit Beer Fest, taking place Aug. 13, 2022 in Burnaby.

Fans of fruit-fuelled brews, this is your time to shine: This August several brewers from near (B.C.) and far (the U.S.) will be pouring their fruity creations at Metro Vancouver's Fruit Beer Fest.

Taking place on Saturday, Aug. 13, 2022 at Burnaby's Swangard Stadium, Fruit Beer Fest will feature dozens of high-profile craft brewers and others pouring beers, ciders, and wines made with regionally-grown fruits. And if you're there to keep a fruit beer fan company but don't love the category yourself, don't fret - organizers assure that there will be plenty more on offer, like lagers and barrel-aged beers. 

In addition to the drinks, Fruit Beer Fest attendees can also kick back in the sunshine on the Swangard field and enjoy "scrumptious food" as well as live music.

Fruit Beer Fest is put on by West Craft, the beer supply biz behind more suds-centric events like Hopwired and the soon-to-be-unleashed Prost, celebrating beers and European-style hot dogs. 

Fruit beers have risen steadily in popularity in recent years, shifting from being a solely-summertime option to year-round creations at many craft breweries in B.C. and beyond. 

Tickets for Fruit Beer Fest 2022 go on sale March 25 at 10 a.m.
