Hopscotch, the biggest whisky and beer festival in Canada, is returning to Vancouver, Nov. 16-Nov. 22. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the festival has expanded from a simple tasting event to a whole week of whisky-paired dinners, master classes, cigar smokes and more.
The main event for fine booze lovers is the Grand Tasting Hall, Nov. 20-Nov. 21, in the cavernous PNE Forum.

Several local restaurants will be serving food, while live entertainment is sure to put you in the drinking mood. Continue reading:
