Brunch Before Beer, You're in the Clear

The only thing that could make your #WVBF2017 weekend better is kicking it off with a little brunch action before the main event. Because nom.

Saturday, check out the Brickworks Brewers Brunch with 3 delicious courses and beer for only $35 (+tax and grat)! Space is limited and this one sold out last year, get your tickets here.

And new this year for Sunday, checkout the Stonesedge Brewers Brunch presented by Grimm's Fine Foods. It will feature a special #WVBF2017 themed menu specially curated by the Stonesedge chefs using their favourite Grimm's products... we've heard the delicious Grimm's Signature Caesar will be on the menu! No tickets required but reservations are recommended.

Coming from Squamish? Norman Rudy's are being absolute lads and offering anyone with a Main Event ticket 50% off brunch between 9am and noon Sept. 16 & 17! Conveniently, this is also the pick up location for our round trip shuttle service. Win!

Welcome Back Mountain FM!

Make sure you tune in, they'll be hosting a ton of #WVBF2017 content leading up to the festival, including some tastings and giveaways with a few of our favourite breweries the last 4 Fridays leading up to the festival.

We Have a Winner! 

We challenged local artists to create a backdrop for our stage at Whistler Olympic Plaza and are stoked to announce that we have a winner! We'll save the full unveil of this work of art for the Main Event itself (above is just a small portion), but in the meantime, congratulations to BAZ ONE, who created a beautiful digital image celebrating beer and the mountains. We'll be blowing his design up to 96 square feet and hanging it behind the bands.

As part of his prize, he'll be sipping on suds from his keg of Gibbons Apr├Ęs Lager and enjoying a BBQ prize pack from Grimm's Fine Foods. He'll also have the opportunity to put some of his other work on display at the #WVBF2017 Main Event which includes inspiration from graphic design, comics, urban art, and of course, Whistler, so make sure you go check it out!

Craft brews often come with some odd names, it's part of their charm.

Hop Chowdah New England IPA from Cannery Brewing Co.
Sap Sucker Maple Porter from Fernie Brewing Co.
