It’s no secret that BC is home to some of the best craft breweries in the country, and the North Shore is a region that’s emerging as a hotbed for amazing brewers both established and new on the scene.
So keeping this in mind, what better way to celebrate the burgeoning North Shore craft beer culture than with a week of sipping, cheers-ing, and talking all things beer?
This year North Shore Craft Beer Week 2019 kicks off October 4 and runs until October 11, 2019.

The region now has nine craft breweries and counting, and a week of beer-focused events will be held in many of these different breweries and other venues in North Vancouver too.
The celebrations will kick off with a launch party at the Pipe Shop on October 4 from 5 to 10 pm and feature breweries like Beere Brewing Co, Black Kettle Brewing Company, Bridge Brewing Co, Deep Cove Brewers + Distillers, Green Leaf Brewing Co, Hearthstone Brewery, House of Funk Brewing Co, Streetcar Brewing, Wildeye Brewing, and soon-to-open North Point Brewing.
The launch event will also have eats from Tacofino and O’Canadawg and feature musical performances from Musos Entertainment.
This party will be followed by a string of events like beer-pairing dinners, brewery battles, Oktoberfest events, open houses, and more.
