It’s a Gingerbread house building with a side of beer! Strange Fellows Brewing in Vancouver is hosting its second annual Gingerbread House Building Workshop for you to enjoy. Purchase a ticket and you’ll get the hand-cut, gingerbread-you-actually-want-to-eat gingerbread pieces, frosting, candy, a board to build the house on, and a box to take it home in (unless you’re too tempted to eat it before it leaves the building).

Show up with your ticket(s) at 2 pm to gather your supplies, grab a beer, and get to decorating! The folks at Strange Fellows will also provide instructions and will be around to help you out if you need construction or decorating advice.
