VANCOUVER’S NORTH SHORE CRAFT BEER WEEK RETURNS NOVEMBER 4 TO 14
Vancouver’s North Shore Tourism Association (VNSTA) is excited to announce Craft Beer Week is returning to the North Shore this November. Join fellow craft beer lovers and North Shore brew masters for ten days of local events and special hotel packages. Guests are invited to safely visit participating local breweries, show their support for the exceptional beer making that our region has to offer and take advantage of a great Craft Beer Week North Shore hotel specials.
“Craft breweries are social hubs where local flavors are enjoyed over conversations with neighbours,” said City of North Vancouver Mayor Linda Buchanan. “For too long craft brewing was overlooked by many. But today the industry has proven it contributes to a prosperous, dynamic, and vibrant community. Craft brewing supports thousands of jobs while animating commercial areas. I am very pleased to support Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week and I hope others join me in raising a glass to our many wonderful breweries.”
Vancouver’s North Shore is home to Canada’s first microbrewery that opened in Horseshoe Bay in 1982. Today, the craft beer legacy still lives on in the region. This year, ten participating North Shore Breweries will each be hosting a series of epic tasting events from November 4 to 14, 2021, featuring special collaboration brews, kitchen takeovers, themed food, live music, games, and a ton of prizes to be won.
Events include House of Funk Brewing, featuring a full lineup of DJs and delicious food paired with the launch of a special collab brew; La Cerveceria Astilleros, featuring a live mariachi band and their new “Acan Chufa – Horchata Porter” on tap; Wildeye Brewing, featuring a kitchen takeover with Japanese eats by Hachiro Vancouver; Black Kettle Brewing, featuring a night of giveaways and local B.C. oysters from Fanny Bay Oysters.
“We are delighted to welcome back Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week this year with a line-up of amazing events from our brewery partners.” says Jennifer Belak, Executive Director of VNSTA. “It’s been a tough couple of years but our hospitality partners have proven to be resilient and are looking forward to welcoming the community back to our celebrated event with health and safety measures in place. We encourage you to continue to support local so that our beloved businesses can continue to thrive for many years to come.”
