BC Beer Awards & Festival 2017

October 21, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Main Event  

The 8th Annual BC Beer Awards & Festival is set to return to Vancouver on Saturday, October 21st, 2017 from 4 – 10pm at the Croatian Cultural Centre. The signature consumer tasting event of BC Craft Beer Month, this festival celebrates the very best in craft brewing from across the province and hosts over 65 BC breweries.

There is a new format this year! Ticket holders now have a choice of two ticket types.

The VIP Awards Hour ticket grants early entry at 4 pm and live viewing of the awards ceremony hosted by CBC’s Stephen Quinn. These tickets will be for industry folks and a limited number available to the public.

The General Admission ticket, which runs 5 – 10 pm does not include the live awards ceremony viewing and still offers a full 5 hours of festival as before.

Awards will be presented for 30 categories. Awards include CBC People’s Choice Award, Richards Buell Sutton LLP Rookie of the Year Award and the Krones Brewers Challenge.

The Growler will once again host a Brewer’s Collaboration booth. Also returning to the festival will be community booths, food trucks and event sponsors!

Once the awards ceremony is over, guests will enjoy live music by Paul Filek in the second ballroom. There will also be a selection of BC Ciders, presented by The BC Farmed Craft Cider Association!
