Get ready for 9 days of brewed goodness starting this Friday in YVR. That’s right, Vancouver Craft Beer Week is back with a bang and offers up all sorts of lip-smacking reasons to get out and explore the world of crafted deliciousness…
Helping kick things off in serious style, the official VCWB launch party will be hosted by none other than hottie Prevail (of Swollen Members), who, alongside DJ Flipout and the Hip Hop Karaoke All Stars, guarantees you’ll be hop-happy from the get-go.
It all goes down at Gossip Night Club where attendees can sample their way through more than twenty of the craft brewing industry’s finest as they celebrate all the festivities. Tickets will sell out fast for this event (they’re only $49) so don’t wait – you’ll be sorry you did. You’ll be privy to live entertainment, unlimited craft beer samples (Serving It Right rules do apply), a souvenir VCBW tasting glass, and prizes for the those dressed in their hip-hop best.
Don’t miss Craft Beer Bingo before the weekend is over. Receive a traditional bingo board filled with 25 1oz. taster glasses – one for each square. For only $30, guests will get three rounds of 25oz Craft Beer Bingo and have the chance to win some amazing prizes. Grandma’s Sunday sessions were never this much fun, we promise!
If you can swing it, nab tickets for Monday’s Maenam Has Company dinner where you’ll be privy to an evening of delicious Thai bites from award-winning Chef Angus An. Upping the taste factor, dishes will be paired with fine beers from Four Winds and Brassneck Brewing. Tickets are still available for $90, but they won’t last long.
Get into the brew-groove with a late night freestyle jam session at the Anza Club and catch Vancouver hip-hop legend Kyprios and The Chaperones as they take the stage for an ultimate show. This event will feature two sets, an intermission to catch your breath, and a DJ to help bring this epic night home. Your $25 ticket gets you tickets for 12 samplers of featured craft beers by Phillips, Bomber and Hoynes.
Wind down the week by hitting up the VCBW Beer Festival presented by CRAFT Beer Market at the Olympic Village Event Grounds. It’ll be an evening fully loaded with craft beer (more than 70 of them will be available to taste). Sample local and import specialty craft beer, mingle with beer enthusiasts, and get buzzed. Tickets to this two-day event (held Friday night and Saturday afternoon) are $35 and include a commemorative VCBW glass and drink tokens.
