ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT!

Hey, friends. Here are a few things to remember for Feb 23rd: 

  1. Have something to eat before arriving. It’s not great to drink on an empty stomach, and even though we do provide food, be sure you’ve eaten something.

  2. Your ticket includes entrance, souvenir glass, food, & all beverages.

  3. There is a coat check at the event (donations appreciated.)

  4. You do not have to purchase drink tokens as pours are unlimited - but know your limit; drink within it.

  5. Stay hydrated. The Water Factory is providing all our drinking water for the evening.  

  6. Bring cash for the silent auction table - some amazing items have been donated. 100% of the revenue goes to the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre. We have prizes in every price range. Sorry, no cheques, debit, or credit cards. 

  7. Vote for the “Fan Favourite” and check out the always unique trophy.

  8. Plan your safe ride home.  A shuttle will be running from 6:00 - 10:00 to your home or restaurant (within city limits).

  9. Remember to thank and support our amazing sponsors:  Tanya Rankin Real Estate, Oliver & Co., Chemo RV, Windsor Plywood, Jak’s Liquor, Interior Properties - Susan Colgate, Raymond James, Hytest Timber,Croft’s Brewing, Finning, & Peka Ent.

Cheers! 

WE THOUGHT WE WERE FULL. THEN WE ADDED ONE MORE.

Jan. 23, 2019 - One month before WLCBF2019 and we had all our breweries lined up. Then we thought we’d add another. So we’ve lined up 22 breweries, 1 cidery, and will have a few surprises for attendees to enjoy. Check out the full list on our 2019 Breweries page.

TICKETS SELL OUT IN 33 MINUTES!

Dec. 1, 2018 - Craft Beer enthusiasts started lining up at 5:30 in the morning for the 9:30 release of the tickets. Over 100 people rolled through the doors of Croft’s Brewing at the opening, and just over a half-hour later the last ticket was scooped up. It was great to see that every person who lined up actually got to purchase tickets. Cheers to all who stood in line and thanks to Murray & the staff at Croft’s Brewing for the use of their facility.

Planning now turns full force to the February event; lining up breweries, sponsors, and various other necessities that make this such a great community event.
