Out of the darkness that is winter in Vancouver comes great things, like the chance to taste rare and unusual brews with like-minded beer fans. The Weathered Beer Celebration is an "extreme" beer tasting event focusing on the flavours of the season.
Now in its third year, Weathered Beer Celebration has grown to include a third tasting session, slated for the second day of the two-day event taking place January 25 and 26 at Vancouver's Heritage Hall.
This year Weathered Beer will feature beers from over 50 breweries, with pours of rare and exciting stouts, lambics, barleywines, strong ales, sours/wild ales, as well as some hoppy and lager ales, too.
Weathered considers itself more of a "bottle share" style event that offers bottle or can pours, a draft bar, and even an art gallery.
The event is sectioned into five bars: The Imperials ‘Murder Bar’, Gueuze & Friends , Haze Locker, Magnum & Bottle Bar, plus a special Draft Bar. All three sessions will feature the same beer menu. The majority of beers will be in bottles or cans, and you will be able to have ‘just a splash’ as desired. Beer tastings are included with your ticket, with pours being 1-4oz max.
What will you be sipping on? The entire beer list is available to peruse online here. You can also chow down on eats from the DL Chicken Wing Bar, which is back for 202 with special edition Weathered Dust.
