Vancouver's North Shore Craft Beer Week returns for its third year from October 4 - 11th in restaurants, breweries, and tasting rooms across Vancouver.
Special casks, limited edition brews, food and beer pairings and hops galore! These are just some of the things to look forward to at this year’s North Shore Craft Beer Week, happening October 4 - 11th in Vancouver.
To kick things off, the festival is hosting a beer-rific launch party on October 4th at The Pipe Shop in North Vancouver. The launch party is a fantastic opportunity to sample 10 of the North Shore’s favourite breweries in addition to some exciting newcomers and North Shore Craft Beer Week’s very own limited edition collaboration beer.
Participating launch party breweries include:
• Beere Brewing Co.
• Black Kettle Brewing
• Bridge Brewing Co.
• Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers
• Green Leaf Brewing
• Hearthstone Brewing
• House of Funk Brewery
• North Point Brewing (Opening fall 2019)
• Streetcar Brewing
• Wildeye Brewing
You can win tickets to the launch party courtesy of the North Shore News HERE. Following the kick-off party, the week-long festival will feature Happy Hours, tours, live music, brewery battles, and some pretty delectable food pairings. Wildeye Brewing, Big Shucker, and Salt and Earth will collaborate on a Pacific Northwest seafood feast featuring local crab, mussels, clams, sausage, potatoes, and corn paired with three different Wildeye Brewing beers.
To make the most of all the festivities, attendees can also download the BC Ale Trail App. By using the app to hop from event to event, you can collect points and be automatically entered to win one of two craft beer staycations for two, featuring a two night stay in an executive room at the Lonsdale Quay Hotel, or SureStay Hotel, a three course dinner and much, much more.
While craft beer continues to steadily rise in popularity throughout Canada, the North Shore’s craft beer scene has absolutely exploded in recent years, welcoming a new wave of microbreweries, tasting rooms and of course, delicious craft beer. North Shore Craft Beer Week aims to celebrate local brews with a series of events that showcase exactly what North Shore beer is all about.
Let’s just say... if you love craft beer, you better make your way to the North Shore this October.
