Toasting John Mitchell

Planning continues for the John Mitchell tribute and Celebration of Life on Sunday July 14th at Red Racer Taphouse in downtown Vancouver. This will be a special day with noteable guests, interesting and historic materials about John, camraderie with craft fans and industry, and lots of donated beer to raise funds in John’s name. View event →

In the meantime, there’s another special day coming up. Aside from the big festivals, this Saturday July 6th is the 37th anniversary of the day the very first Horseshoe Bay Brewing beer was sold at John Mitchell’s Troller Pub, making it the official birthday of the craft beer revolution in Canada. Our friends over at Instagram’s BC Craft Breweries have proposed that all fans of BC craft beer and its founding father raise a glass in Mitchell’s honour this Saturday, and every July 6th henceforth. Raise a toast here on July 6th →
