You’ll also be able to sample ciders from Tooley Bender Cidery and meads from Ethereal and Dusty Bottle. And if you get hungry, try some of the Couve’s best offerings from FireBox Food, Vida Flare, Tommy O’s, and Foody Blues BBQ.

Advance tickets are available at vancouverbrewfest.com/tickets/. Tickets will also be available at the gate, but only while supplies last.
