There’s a nice little beer festival coming to Abbotsford. BC Hop Fest takes place on October 3rd at Kinloch Farms. Here’s the press release;
“The inaugural BC Hop Fest is Canada’s FIRST Fresh Beer Festival and will be held October 3, 2015 on the fertile Sumas Prairie where sun, water, and gentle breezes contribute to one of the best hops growing environments in the Pacific Northwest. Join us as we celebrate the hop harvest, the resurgence of BC’s hop growing industry and fresh hopped beer produced by over 15 spectacular BC craft breweries. Fresh beer tastings, hop farm tours, food trucks, entertainment, and main stage presentations highlighting “all the things you can do with hops” will provide a fun filled afternoon to start off Craft Beer Month in British Columbia.”
Tickets are $25 and you can purchase them here.
The hop growing industry in BC is expanding and this event will be a great showcase for local hops and local brewmasters alike.
