July 16: Craft Beer Tourist Group Hike #1

Buntzen Lake, Port Moody, BC; 8:30–15:00

On Sunday, July 16th I am organizing a group hike at Buntzen Lake followed by an afternoon of delicious Craft Beer on Brewers Row in Port Moody! We will begin to gather at 8:30 AM on the Beach for a meet and greet and will head out on our hike around 9:00 AM.

To prove that “Craft Beer People are Awesome People” I am asking everyone to bring a small donation of food or cash for the Langley Food Bank. Everyone that makes a donation will receive an entry ballot for some great prizes compliments of the breweries!

The initial response to my post on my @bccraftbreweries Instagram feed asking who would be interested was massive! Let’s make this first hiking event an epic one!!

Be sure to share with your friends that you think might be interested! I will open up the chat so that people can arrange rides or ask questions about any missing details.
