Whistler Village Beer Festival is Coming to Whistler. Bottoms Up!

A new festival is coming to Whistler. This mountain town has hosted a variety of exciting festivals over the years, and now it’s time to celebrate beer. Yes, that’s right, beer. The 45 participating micro-breweries bring the gift of great tasting beer to share with Whistler’s finest folk.

Whistler Village Beer Festival

The Whistler Village Beer Festival will take place on September 14, 2013 at the Whistler Olympic Plaza from 1PM to 5:30PM.

The festival will showcase the talents of the Canadian and Pacific Northwest craft brewing community and a few international breweries to add flavour to the mix. Lighthouse Brewing and Phillips Brewing will be traveling from Victoria, BC. Hopworks Urban Brewery and Deschutes Brewery will be joining from Oregon, USA. While Brouwerij De Molen and Samuel Smith Brewery will be trekking all the way to Whistler from Europe! Check out a full list of participating breweries.

Beer enthusiasts will be educated on the art and craft of brewing and tasting this many-splendored thing. They’ll be given a chance to ask questions about the appearance, smell, taste and mouthfeel of the sample beers, while gaining appreciation for the devotion that goes into perfecting a pint.

While visitors and Whistler locals sip samples, the brewers will be in the hot seat, as they answer ‘beerqueries’ and share stories of their brewing passion, ultimately hoping to receive the “Best in Fest” title for most favoured brew!

If this sounds up your alley, then grab your tickets today! Tickets are $35 and include a souvenir sampling mug, 5 beer sampling tokens, a $10 coupon redeemable at a number of Whistler restaurants and bars, and a “Best in Fest” beer ballot to cast for your favourite brew. Additional tokens will cost $1.25.

While all the action takes place from 1-5:30PM on Saturday, September 14, there are various evening events that will take place throughout the weekend. View Schedule.
