Persephone Brewing Presents the 4th Annual Tough Kegger @ Persephone Brewing Company | Gibsons | British Columbia | Canada

This is our 4th annual Tough Kegger race and is (and has always been) a fundraiser for the Sunshine Coast Association for Community living. It’s a 7 km adventure race in which teams of 4 carry a full 20L keg though some of our rugged West Coast terrain, with fun & challenging obstacles and challenges along the way. Eternal glory and infinite high-fives for the winners (not to mention free beer)! The race is followed by an epic Persephone Brewing Anniversary party with beer, food, music, the works!

East of East Van Tap Takeover
Aug 19 @ 5:00 pm – Aug 20 @ 2:00 am

Dageraad, Steamworks and Steel & Oak are combining forces for one heck of a tasty Tap Takeover.

Named after an amazing collab beer from Burnaby’s finest brewers, Steamworks and Dageraad, we present you with our latest tap takeover.

While everyone talks about all the great breweries in East Van, if you continue heading east, you’ll find Steamworks and Dageraad repping Burnaby, with Steel & Oak making the goods in New Westminster.

All three of these fine breweries will be taking over all our taps for this evening of good cheer, with some rarities and solid brews.

We’ll post the list once everything is confirmed. Our fingers are crossed for a couple of things to be ready in time for this event.
