The 9th Annual BC Beer Awards & Festival is set to return to Vancouver on Saturday, October 20th, from 4 - 9pm at the Croatian Cultural Centre. The signature consumer tasting event of BC Craft Beer Month, this festival celebrates the very best beer from across the province and hosts over 55 BC breweries.
Once again, ticket holders will have a choice of two ticket types. The Awards Hour ticket grants early entry at 4pm and live viewing of the awards ceremony. These tickets will be for industry folks and a limited number will be available to the public. The General Admission ticket, which runs 5 - 9pm does not include the live awards ceremony viewing.
Awards will be presented for 30+ categories plus CBC People's Choice Award, Richards Buell Sutton LLP Rookie of the Year Award, BC Hop Co Brewers Challenge, Brewery of the Year, our 2nd Annual Creative Industry Awards, plus more surprises to come! Last year the BC Beer Awards challenged Brewers to SMaSH it out of the park. This year we want to keep things fresh - with Fresh Hop being the main focus of the BC Hop Co Brewers Challenge!
The Growler will once again host a Brewer’s Collaboration booth. Also returning to the festival will be our community booths, food trucks and event sponsors! Once the awards ceremony is over, guests will enjoy live music by a new guest this year (details TBA). We’ll also have a selection of BC Ciders, presented by The BC Farmed Craft Cider Association!
