VCBW Official Beer

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 25 – June 3, 2018). This 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.

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. With a higher ABV (7%alcohol) and a copious amount of Citra, Mosaic, Vic Secret and Enigma hops, this beer is sure to live up to the reputation of the breweries that created it: Backcountry, Beere and Coast Mountain.

The 2018 VCBW Collab is scheduled to be released Mid-May, approximately one week prior to Vancouver Craft Beer Week 2018’s Kickoff on May 25, and will be available in 4 packs of 473mL at select private liquor and beer stores, and on draught at select tasting rooms and bars/restaurants. Partial proceeds will be donated to Eastside Boxing Club’s Self Defence Series for female-identified, and all members of the LGBTTIQQ2S community.
