Chilliack cheers culture and beer at the 6th annual Fraser Valley Culture and Craft Beer Festival

This year’s festival features beer samples, appetizers, live entertainment, and a silent auction

It’s time to raise your glass as the Fraser Valley Culture & Craft Beer Festival returns for its sixth year.

On Saturday, September 15, 2018, the Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society once again invites Chilliwack to an evening of fantastic beer samples, various delectable appetizers, live entertainment, and a fabulous silent auction. Join us for an evening of fun supporting the Society’s programming, in what will be an event that fills the Centre with laughter and good cheer.

“I am super excited at the large cross section of breweries that we have coming. There’s local breweries, as well as breweries from across the province. It’s really great to be able to sample from around our province,” said Delaney Bergstrom, who organized the event.

Patrons will have the opportunity to find a new favorite, with tastings from 20 extraordinary breweries. This year’s list of participants includes Chilliwack’s own Old Yale Brewing, as well as Vancouver-based Granville Island Brewing and Vancouver Island Brewing.

Other fine breweries attending this year are: Pacific Western Brewing, TWA Dogs, Red Arrow, Old Abbey Ales, Steamworks Brewing Co., Yellow Dog Brewery, Andina Brewing Co., Whistler Brewing Company, Fernie Brewing Company, Philips Brewing & Malting Company, Four Winds Brewing, Ravens Brewing Company, Mariner Brewing, Trading Post Brewery, and Hoyne Brewing Company.

With such a wide variety, there will be a type of beer that everyone can rave about.

There will also be an amazing selection of food that will create the perfect pairing to enhance the flavourful selection of beers.

“It’s not just about the beer though,” continued Bergstrom. “(It’s also) the food. We have some fabulous restaurants and caterers coming. Mr. Mike’s and Townhall, which just opened up, will be joining us this year. As well, Hofstede’s, Jim’s Pizzeria, and Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry will be serving, and Fresh Impressions Catering is returning again this year. There will be lots of delicious morsels to taste.

“There will also be incredible live entertainment, as well as really exciting silent auction items. I’m really happy to have all of this in the building, supporting the arts and bringing people together over good food, great beer, and fantastic entertainment.” she finished.

Whether you are a stout sipper or an IPA appreciator, the Fraser Valley Culture & Craft Beer Festival is sure to hit the spot. This fantastic fundraiser has sold out every year – you will need to get your tickets quickly if you do not want to miss out on this lively evening!

This is a 19+ event (ID required). Tickets are $50 and includes five tasting tokens, while additional tokens are $2 each. Tickets are available at the Centre Box Office, online at Chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW (7469).
