Best in B.C. beer coming to Chilliwack this fall

Culture & Craft Beer Festival will be a fundraiser for arts and crafts programs at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Saturday, Nov. 30.

Some of the best microbreweries in the province will be taking centre stage in Chilliwack this fall.

The Fraser Valley Culture & Craft Beer Festival will be a key fundraiser for arts and crafts programs at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Saturday, Nov. 30.

“Over the last several years, craft brewing has become the fastest growing beer segment in Canada,” said event spokesperson KellyAnne Trebrinke.

For the first time, craft brewers will come together in Chilliwack to celebrate the type of beer that is creating rather than following trends.

Festival sponsor Brad Stuart of District Public House is proud to throw his support behind such a unique event.

“Our vision for the festival is to show everyone in Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley the incredible variety and quality of craft beer here in B.C.,” he said.

Several craft brewers, or microbreweries like Chilliwack’s own Old Yale Brewing will be in attendance at the fest alongside: Coal Harbour Brewing, Cannery Brewing, Howe Sound Brewing Company, Pacific Western Brewing Company, Parallel 49 Brewing Company, Steamworks Brewery, Dead Frog Brewery, Vancouver Island Brewery, and Beverage Concepts.

Local cuisine will be served and Chilliwack rockers, The Lounge Hounds, will make it a night to remember.

Foodies will enjoy samples from Verard Farms, Hofstede’s Country Barn, Frankie’s Italian Kitchen, Birdie’s Bakery, Smits & Co Cheeses, Vallee Sausage, Bill’s Beef Jerky, Decades Coffee Club, Fraser Valley Meats, Happy Days Dairy, Holland Shopping Centre, Original Joe’s, and True North Kettle Corn.

Tickets are $35, 604.391.SHOW (7469), visit, or in person at 9201 Corbould Street.
