VCBW Official Beer of 2019 To Be Announced

Vancouver Craft Beer Week Collaboration Brew Day

Brewers from across the province gather on this special day every Spring to celebrate their community in anticipation of Vancouver Craft Beer Week, a 10-day celebration of craft beer that runs from the last Friday of May through the first few days in June (May 31st-June 9th 2019). Last year, Backcountry Brewing was joined by Beere Brewing and Coast Mountain Brewing to develop the recipe for a sea-to-sky collaboration Double Dry Hopped Pilsner at their brewery in Squamish.

With our 10 year anniversary around the corner in 2019, we are working on the perfect brew to celebrate! Keep checking back for news on our 2019 collaboration.

The Official 2018 VCBW Collaboration Beer: Sea-to-sky Edition

Three new breweries along this epic stretch of highway got together and brewed one wicked pilsner to commemorate the biggest craft beer celebration on the West Coast, Vancouver Craft Beer Week for 2018. With a higher ABV (7% alcohol) and a copious amount of Citra, Mosaic, Vic Secret and Enigma hops, this beer definitely lived up to the reputation of the breweries that created it: Backcountry, Beere and Coast Mountain.

The 2019 VCBW Collab is currently in development stages, and is sure to tell an epic tale of  Vancouver Craft Beer Week, 10 years in the making! Stay connected to us to find out more about 2019’s Collaborators, where to buy, and official launch date. Partial proceeds will be donated to The BC Hospitality Foundation.
