BC Craft Brewers Conference schedule features special guest; Early Bird ending
The BC Craft Brewers Conference on October 19th (the day before the BC Beer Awards) is one of the big events of the year for the local craft beer industry. This year will be bigger than last year’s inaugural event because Bart Watson, Chief Economist at the US-based Brewers Association, will be featured as the Closing Keynote Speaker. His name is one well known to those that follow the business of craft beer in North America.
Following the Conference is a glitzy Afterparty called BEERED SCIENCE, to be held at Science World.

From The Rumour Mill
Looks like a bouncing new baby brewery may be coming to Port Moody. Tri-Cities-based beer blogger and What’s Brewing Tasting Panel member Carnell Turton of BrewardInlet.com has the scoop that a new brewhouse is coming to the famed Brewers Row. Details here
What’s NOT a rumour is that nearby Port Coquitlam has approved its third craft brewery. Story here
Also, we hear that two new breweries have applied for their lounge endorsements in Comox BC. That would make for a quintet in the Courtenay/Comox/Cumberland area; a great ski and beer destination if you ask us.
