Western Canada’s biggest and best craft-only beer fest, the VCBW Festival, returns to the historic PNE Fairgrounds on June 8th and 9th.

We are pleased to announce the return of the US Brewers Association to the VCBW Festival! The BA will once again host a special area featuring 30+ American craft beers, some of which have never before been poured in Canada. VCBW Festival is the only Canadian beer festival the BA attends, and we are looking forward to welcoming them back for the 4th year running!
