The culmination of North Bank Beer Week (Sept. 22-30) is the Vancouver Brewfest Fresh Hop Festival overlooking the Columbia River from Vancouver Landing. It’s happening from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30: a celebration featuring 25 fresh hopped beers, a special style available only once a year, immediately after hop harvest. Meet the brewers, enjoy the beautiful view, and sample the finest fresh hopped brews on the North Bank.
Space is limited to 1,600 ticket holders and tickets are only available online. Non-refundable tickets are $15 plus a $2.55 ticketing fee and include an entrance wristband, a Fresh Hop Festival pint glass, and eight event tokens. Additional tokens—good for all beverage samples, full pours, and food vendors—are available for $1.25 per token. Four tokens equals a full pour, and—bonus!—tokens never expire and can be used at any Vancouver Brewfest event. Proceeds benefit North Bank Beer Week and the Mount St. Helens Institute.
The event also features an array of local food trucks, live music, and arts & crafts vendors. The event is for attendees age 21 and over. Non-alcoholic drinks are available from food vendors.
