Vancouver Craft Beer Week 2017

Cheers! Vancouver Craft Beer Week

From May 26, 2017 – June 4, 2017 it’s a celebration of suds! Craft Beer Week kicks off this Friday – the largest craft beer celebration in Canada with over 15,000 attendees getting together to knock back some cold ones in the summer sun.

The festival is so big that it couldn’t even be contained to one week. The 10-day festival is full of live entertainment, community events, and – oh yeah – lots and lots of beer! There are also tap takeovers, block parties, crawfish boils, and a whole lot more.

The festival culminates at the signature VCBW Festival on Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4, 2017 at the PNE Fairgrounds (2901 E Hastings Street) when 100 craft breweries and cideries will come together to pour 300+ beer and ciders for eagerly awaiting craft beer aficionados.

Vancouver Craft Beer Week is soon here: May 18-26


It’s the most wonderful time of year for craft beer lovers. It’s the hop-hoppiest season of all. Vancouver Craft Beer Week returns May 18-26 with 60+ participating breweries, 70+ venues throughout Vancouver, and 50+ events spread over 9 beer-sodden days.

Judging by the VCBW Spinal Tap-influenced video (above), participants can expect more “rock stars” than “fermentation geeks.” The festivities kick off with Mayor Gregor Robertson tapping the first cask of Cascadian Brown Ale at the opening party at the Yaletown Roundhouse Community Centre, May 18.

Tickets for the parties, pairings, tastings and showdowns are on sale now and tend to sell out fast. Find out more about the most exciting Vancouver Craft Beer Week 2012 events after the jump.   Continue reading:
