BC Craft Beer Month: October 1-31, 2016

In 2011, Minister of Agriculture Don McRae officially proclaimed October as BC Craft Beer Month. It was to be a month of celebrating BC Craft beers, and of course, the brewers behind those great beers. We have never looked back!

With over 130 breweries (and counting) in BC, we continue to have so much to celebrate. Not only that, but craft cideries and distilleries are opening up throughout the province. We are also noticing more local production of malt and hops: a win-win for breweries, cideries and consumers!


A province-wide kick-off party and awareness campaign aimed at celebrating BC Craft beer. All will be revealed on the site as plans and events unfold.

31 days of BC Beer. Every day there will be a beer of the day listed on our Social Media for everyone to partake in!


Year Two for BC Hop Fest, Canada’s first fresh hop beer festival on a hop farm! This year, three times more presenters and breweries involved! Look for that on Saturday October 1st.
