We would like to start 2019 by thanking you, our members, for making 2018 our best year yet! Attendance at our signature events soared to capacity, with some events selling out in a single day. Our little South Okanagan Branch is one of the most active regions in BC, and we attribute this to the love of beer that drives our executive team, business partners and members. All of our events started as dreams shared over a pint of craft beer, and with a bit of luck, some help from our friends, and a whole lot of hard work, we’ve crafted those dreams into annual events that grow bigger and better each year!
