25 Years of Beer at Cannery Brewing

April 13, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$25 – $30

Go on a tasting tour through the past 25 years of BC craft beer.

Wow — it’s amazing to think that the Okanagan Fest of Ale celebrated its 25th year in 2020!

The craft beer industry has expanded considerably over the past 25 years — in fact, there were about 25 breweries in British Columbia when the Fest of Ale kicked off in 1996, while today there are nearly 250. How can anyone keep track of them all?

One person who tries to keep track of them all is Joe Wiebe, the Thirsty Writer, the author of Craft Beer Revolution: The Insider’s Guide to B.C. Breweries, and a co-founder of Victoria Beer Week and the BC Ale Trail. Returning to Penticton for the first time since 2019, Joe is excited to host this seminar that looks at how the craft beer industry has changed and grown since the mid-1990s. Joe will present a special beer inspired by each five-year period. As always, the evening will be fun and informative — the perfect way to kick off Fest of Ale Weekend!

Price: $30 / $25 for CAMRA members. CAMRA members, scroll down on Eventbrite to see ticket options for CAMRA members.

Autographed copies of Joe’s book are also available for sale in advance or at the event.

This seminar includes taster-sized samples of six different beers. 19+ only.
