Beer Yoga (this one's on us!)

We're so excited to add a brand new event to this year's stellar #WVBF2017 lineup. We're teaming up with Lululemon to offer a beer yoga session, free of charge. That's right, this hour long sesh will you have sipping suds while you stretch. We're not crazy, beer yoga is totally a thing. Top 3 reasons you're going to want to check this one out: 
1. No cost! (but registration is required - register here)
2. It includes a beer to enjoy during your practice
3. You're also invited to head up to the FireRock Lounge post-class for a sweet after party with live music plus Lululemon will be raffling off prizes for all participants 

Space is limited, register now!

Hot tubs for the win: welcome

Welcome aboard a brand new sponsor to the #WVBF2017 lineup! Backcountry Distributors offer the Original Nomad collapsible hot tub, perfect for taking along on all of your backcountry adventures, and the towel-sized Epic Wipes to keep you clean when showering isn't really a thing. They even offer free shipping because they're awesome. Keep an eye out for these guys at the Main Event; they'll be the ones enjoying a cold one in the hot tubs!

Brew Trends: Go to Brewniversity!

During #WVBF2017, Simon Fraser University will be offering a 3-day course on Craft Beer Business Fundamentals at the Whistler Learning Centre. Fancy yourself a craft beer aficionado who's always wanted to brew your own beer and roll it out to the masses? Or, maybe you're one of our breweries looking to expand your knowledge. Learn about the business from all angles, from strategy and operations to marketing and consumer behaviour. Only 20 spots are available, all the info and registration you need is right here!
