BRB Co (Be Right Back Brewing) located in Richmond recently held a cask event to raise money for a Scholarship fund for the Kwantlen Polytechnic University brewing program. The event was on January 23, 2016 and ran from Noon to 6:00pm. The event was sponsored by Just Here for the Beer and TSN1040 radio.
Like always I was there early and took a few photos of the setup of the event and watched Just Here for the Beer record their show.
A good number of local breweries had their beer pouring at this event including Be Right Back Brewing, Big Rock Urban, Red Truck, Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers, Howe Sound, Four Winds, Steamworks, Parallel 49, Old Abbey Ales, Steel & Oak and a beer on tap from the KPU Brewing Students.
For the first annual event the event went off quite well. There were some great beers on offer which does not surprise me as the students of KPU could be the future head brewers at the breweries that came out. It was not too busy at any one time at the event but there were waves of new people arriving all the time. I met a few students of the program and they seem to really be enjoying learning abut the brewing process and the prospects of working in the industry.
All proceeds from this event benifited teh Kwanteln Plytechnic Brewing Scholarship Fund.
