Summer may be gone, but things haven’t slowed down in the beer world! October is BC Craft Beer Month and we have lots of great events to share with you, both locally and around the province. Don’t forget – if you are travelling outside of the South Okanagan area that there are lots of great CAMRA member benefits available across BC. Check out the full list here.
Have you had a good summer so far? We have! While it’s sad to see summer go, we are looking forward to the fall, and the action-packed beer events this season brings! In the rest of the Province we have the Great Canadian Beer Festival happening September 8 and 9, the Whistler Beer Festival happening September 13-17, Hopscotch in Kelowna on September 22-23, Brewloops in Kamloops September 27-October 1, the BC Hop Fest in Abbotsford on September 30 and the Oliver Cask and Keg Fest on September 30. Plus we’re already seeing lots of great events coming up in October for BC Craft Beer Month and Oktoberfest.
The heat of summer is upon us, and no doubt many of you are finding cold, craft beer a great way to quench your thirst. Not only do we have several partner breweries in our region (Firehall, Bad Tattoo, Cannery Brewing, Highway 97, Tin Whistle and Detonate) but we also have partnered with several cideries in the South Okanagan as well! Read on for more details.
Did everyone make it out to Okanagan Fest of Ale last month? The biggest event yet drew a record number of breweries and attendees to Penticton, with a number of additional events leading up to the main event, such as Joe Wiebe’s IPA Odyssey at Bad Tattoo. Now with festival season in full swing we are looking forward to the Great Okanagan Beer Festival in Kelowna this weekend. Tickets are still available, go here to pick up yours.
Welcome to the South Okanagan branch of the Campaign for Real Ale, an independent, volunteer-run consumer organization dedicated to supporting the brewing of traditional styles of beer in the traditional manner, using traditional ingredients.
