FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Skiing, Sun, Beer and Comedy on tap for big new event this Spring at Baldy
Mt. Baldy, BC (Monday, March 11th, 2019) – What better way is there to spend a Spring day than on the slopes of Baldy, skiing and riding in the sunshine, and then following things up with laughs and a few beers in the lodge? How about filling your après ski evening with 3 nationally famous comedians, and tasting some fresh brews from 6 BC Craft Breweries? That’s what we’ve got on tap for the inaugural Baldy Brew HAHA! Craft Beer and Comedy Festival taking over the Baldy Mountain lodge on Saturday March 23rd.
THE EVENT – MAR 23rd
The Baldy Brew HAHA! Is shaping up to be the premiere event of the season, or at least the most delicious and most hilarious event of the season! There will be a minimum of 6 BC Craft Breweries setting up tasting stations in and around the lodge with 12 different beers and ciders for guests to taste. At the end of the night guests will select their top three favourite brews and we’ll hand out our beautiful hand-made medals for the Baldy Brew HAHA! People’s Choice favourite beers.
Confirmed breweries thus far include:
- Firehall Brewery – Oliver
- Highway 97 – Penticton
- Barley Mill – Penticton
- Big Surf – Kelowna
- Torchlight Brewing – Nelson
- Rustic Roots – Cawston
The Baldy Brew HAHA!, is presented by the Okanagan Comedy Festival and in between tasting delicious beers we’ll be bringing you 3 incredibly hilarious comedians. Headlining the event will be internationally known Tim Nutt of Just for Laughs, CBC’s The Debaters and Comedy Now fame.
Tim Nutt is a comic who can’t be judged by his cover. Long-haired, bearded and “rough around the edges,” audiences expect Nutt’s material to match. But he surprises with razored-down punch lunes and well conjured-up premises that place him as one of the top comics working today.
Opening up for Tim will be Alex Fortin and Ryan Short, veterans of the Comedy World Series.
“While our breweries will be doing their best to get you to taste their beers, Tim, Alex and Ryan will be doing their best to have that beer come shooting out of your nose with laughter,”
explained marketing coordinator Andrew Zwicker
