BARREL AGED! Yup, the longer, the better! As BCBA has Aged 10 Years, we thought it was appropriate to challenge brewers to age their beer as well! 2019 is the #yearofthebarrelaged. To register for the Brewers Challenge, please fill in our form and submit it no later than September 1st. NOTE: Only breweries that have been approved for a booth can submit a beer. Invitations sent May 17th.
The BC Craft Brewers Conference, presented by West Coast Canning and hosted by the BC Craft Brewers Guild, brings together stakeholders from the BC craft brewing industry for an annual networking and educational event which takes place during BC Craft Beer Month. 600+ attendees will form new contacts with industry peers and professionals, connect with key suppliers, and gain insight into industry innovations, initiatives and issues. There will be beer too of course! The Conference, now spanning two days includes the Conference Kickoff on Thursday evening and the Official After Party on Friday evening.
We’ve made a few changes as to how booths will work this year. As you all know, space is very limited, so we have decided to reduce the number of booths, thus allowing for more attendees. We’re also going to be implementing an application process for booths. Our decisions will be based on a variety of factors, and will include, but not be limited to the number of times participating in the festival, 1st-time breweries, previous years token sales, previous wins, community involvement, Creative Industry Awards engagement, attitude, geographic diversity, etc. This process only applies to booths at the event, and not the main judging or creative industry portion of BCBA. Deadline to apply is May 1st at 11.59pm. Apply here now.
