Vancouver, BC (June 24, 2016): The 7th Annual BC Beer Awards & Festival is set to return to Vancouver on Saturday, October 15, 2016 from 4 - 9pm at the Croatian Cultural Centre (3250 Commercial Drive). The signature consumer tasting event of BC Craft Beer Month, this festival celebrates the very best in craft brewing from across the province. A one-day only event, it features both the BC Beer Awards ceremony hosted by CBC's Stephen Quinn and a craft beer festival with over 65 breweries and cideries. This year, awards will be presented for 30 categories, up from 20 last year. Awards include CBC People's Choice Award, Richards Buell Sutton LLP Rookie of the Year Award and the Brewers Challenge. Last year the BC Beer Awards challenged Brewers to make our judges and event attendees “pucker up.” 2016 has been dubbed by the craft beer community to be the “Year of the Mild Beer” and we have challenged BC’s Brewers to create something mild, 4% ABV or less and still full flavoured. Also returning to the festival will be our community booths, and craft beer focused vendors.
Early Bird tickets are $32 (plus tax) for the BC Beer Awards & Festival, and will be available August 16, 2016 until September 15, 2016. Regular priced tickets are $37 (plus tax) as of September 16, 2016.
