Well its almost that time again this year! Vancouver Craft Beer Week is just around the corner running from May 29th to June 7th, 2015.
For the sixth annual Vancouver Craft Beer week things have only gotten bigger once again. The event that I can not wait to attend is the “Rookies & Legends” event at the 12 Kings Pub on June 5th, 2015 between 6pm and 10pm. Tickets run at $49 plus taxes and fees but include the beer and sample sized snacks in that price. This event brings 24 breweries to pour their wares. 12 Rookies and 12 Legends in the local beer scene.
Pouring for the Legends:
Stanley Park Brewing
Central City Brewers & Distillers (Red Racer)
Parallel 49 Brewing

Pouring for the Rookies:
Yellow Dog Brewing
4 Mile Brewpub

The lineup of breweries sound great and I am sure they will be bringing some amazing beer to share with the crowd. The following is a little blurb from the VCBW website on the event.
“It’s no secret that BC’s craft brewing community is growing. Our province’s rich lineage of influential veteran breweries is balanced with a bubbling crop of exciting new brewers. Rookies and Legends gathers 24 of the BC Brewers Guild’s finest (12 Rookies and 12 Legends) at 12 Kings Pub for an evening of beer, food and good ol’ socializing. Doubling as a fundraiser for the BC Craft Brewers Guild, this event will see brewers from all over the province serving their beers alongside some delicious food offerings from 12 Kings! Your ticket is inclusive of beer samples and a variety of sample-sized food offerings.”
So if this sounds good to you like it does to me pick up your tickets now. They will not last forever! If you snooze you loose. If you do purchase tickets make sure to tap me on the shoulder and say hi!
