Nov 22: 3rd Annual Beeard & Moustache Challenge

Strange Fellows Brewing, Vancouver, BC; 19:00–21:00

In celebration of all things hairy and scary in observance of Koutzoulan, we invite you to join us on November 22nd for our 3rd Annual Beard & Moustache Challenge.

We hereby challenge the bewhiskered and mustachioed to show us their best and help raise funds for Movember. Categories are Best Moustache, Best Beard, and the Brewer’s Golden Moustache Award*. Your $15 entry fee (a.k.a. donation to Movember) gets you a beer as well as the chance to win some fabulous prizes. 100% of proceeds will be donated to Movember Foundation.
(* open to all brewers and associates of local breweries)

Registration: 6-7pm
Contest: 7-9pm

Koutzoulan, a.k.a. The Most Terrible Wolf Day is an Old Country tradition that honours the much-feared and revered Wolf. To avoid illness and bad luck, superstition dictates that on The Most Terrible Wolf Day people must not wash or comb their hair, wear clean clothes, nor cut bread with a knife. Above all, they must not leave the house after dark for fear of being eaten by the Wolf.

Maybe we’re not all superstitious, but it wouldn’t hurt to stay indoors and join friends at Strange Fellows to celebrate all things hirsute, and support men’s health at the same time!

Nov 23: Black Wednesday Anniversary: Firefighter Celebration!

Spinnakers Brew Pub, Victoria, BC; 11:00–23:00

On November 23rd 2016, Spinnakers had a fire that could have been the end of it all, but it wasn’t!!! Thanks to the local community and the Victoria Firefighters, Spinnakers still stands as the oldest Brewpub in Canada.

So this November 23rd from 11am-11pm we invite the local community to come and celebrate with our staff, and our local Firefighters at Spinnakers. We will be serving up our Firefighter Thirst Extinguisher Session Ale on tap for a special price of $5 + taxes and we will be selling our tall cans of Session Ale (a dollar of every four pack goes to the Victoria Firefighter’s Charitable Foundation). Not to mention there may be some Firefighter calender’s up for grabs!

We hope to see you there!

The 22nd Annual Hopscotch Festival is back – but in an entirely new way! Canada’s largest celebration of Scotch and other Whiskies, Craft and Premium Beer, Craft and Premium Spirits, Wine and Food has been given a facelift with immense changes being implemented. It took 22 years but Hopscotch is no longer a “corporate-style” public trade show but rather an experience for the “in” that won’t be forgotten.

This year’s event is a little different! It’s ticketed (by donation via Eventbrite) and there are only 125 tickets! So don’t doddle 😉

West Coast Brewery Tours is going to be running a shuttle service from Swans Hotel to the brewery by donation! Bus 75 also stops right in front, so there’s no excuse not to visit us.

We’re enjoyed three awesome years of support from our community, and want you to join us for a fun celebratory evening to help us return the favour!

You provide the friends, and we’ll provide the fun and four never-before-been-released beers that we’ve created over the past year just for the occasion!

Purchase tickets at EVENTBRITE by donation. Proceeds from this event will go to both the Sidney Food Bank and the Multiple Sclerosis Society!

We look forward to seeing everyone!
