On October 21, 2017, winners of this year’s BC Beer Awards were named. The ceremony was held in conjunction of a tasting event at the Croatian Cultural Centre. Over 65 breweries set up a booth and showcased their beers while celebrating with their peers as winners of 30 award categories were being announced.

BC Beer Awards

This year’s theme was SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop), so participating breweries were challenged to create a single malt and single hop beer to be considered for the Brewers Challenge Award.

On Monday, September 25, 11 professional barchefs and four apprentice bartenders competed at the 2017 MADE WITH LOVE Vancouver Regional Competition. The professionals were competing for a spot to represent the region at the Nationals next year.
