For immediate release

North Vancouver, BC – Vancouver’s North Shore is seeing its biggest craft beer event return for its second year this October 19-26.

The VNSCBW launch party taking place at the Pipe Shop on October 19, 5pm-10pm will host not only five of the North Shore breweries, but also welcomes three new breweries; House of Funk Brewing, Streetcar Brewing, and Wildeye Brewing that will be opening in the area in late 2018 and early 2019.

Participating breweries – Beere Brewing Company, Black Kettle Brewing, Bridge Brewing Company, Hearthstone Brewery, Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers will be welcoming hop heads through their doors throughout the week to try special casks, get behind the scenes tours, and experience one-off special events.

Visitors can also be rewarded for their beer-tasting with the Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week Passport found on the Xplorer app. For a limited time, users can download the app and go on a brewery scavenger hunt collecting stamps at the launch party and the breweries.
