One of the greatest things about summer in Vancouver is the countless festivals you can attend - and what beats a festival solely based on beer?

Grab your friends - or make some new ones there - and experience two of the best things Vancouver has to offer, great beer and mountain culture.

Squamish Beer Festival features some of the best brews from more than 50 craft breweries and craft cideries who will showcase their latest releases.

The festival is an annual half-day event where over 2,000 beer lovers come together to celebrate right in the heart of the Sea to Sky, and right in the heart of downtown Squamish. There will be live music, entertainment, food trucks, games, axe throwing (yes, you read that right), DJs, and more!

There is also a shuttle service being offered out of Vancouver and Whistler, so you know what that means - nobody has to be the designated driver! Everybody can join in on the fun and enjoy the latest beers and ciders from our local craft brew industry.

Squamish Beer Festival will be held this summer on July 7, from 2pm till 8pm. Last year the festival sold out so be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible from their website!
