What better way to top off your weekend of Chili tasting at the 1st Annual East Van Chili Cook Off than with some beer tasting at the 2010 Nando’s Canada Cup of Beer Festival?

The Beer Festival is taking place this Friday, July 9th (4pm – 9m) and Saturday, July 10th (1pm – 7pm) at Matthews Field (adjacent to Thunderbird Stadium at UBC). The festival is in its fifth year, and is Vancouver’s largest beer festival. Matthews Field is the temporary site for the 2010 festival due to construction, and in 2011 the festival plans to return to its original home of Thunderbird Stadium.

There is the opportunity to taste over 200 beers from around 30 vendors. Nandos has even teamed up with Russell Brewing to create a Peri-Peri beer for the festival… I’m not sure if this will be a good thing or a bad thing… I guess I’ll have to head on out and taste it! There will also be live entertainment featured on both days of the festival.

Tickets are onsale now on the official website, (or can be purchased at the door), and include five tasting tokens and a souvenir mug. Tickets for Friday are $15 and tickets for Saturday are $20.
