Hopwired Festival is happening in Vancouver on February 29

Feb 10 2020, 2:15 pm

If there’s one thing that’s certain in the foodie world, it’s that Vancouver loves its locally-roasted coffee and it loves its craft beer too.

So it only makes sense that the city loves Hopwired Festival presented by Espressotec, an event that celebrates both of these highly-consumed and beloved local beverages at the same time.

This exciting annual event is going down on Saturday, February 29, 2020, from 1 to 6 pm at the Croatian Cultural Centre.

Each ticket includes all-inclusive international and craft beer (4oz per serving) along with all-inclusive Third Wave coffee.

In addition to drinks, Hopwired will feature food trucks and doughnuts.
