Growing up in Metro Vancouver I spent a lot of time at the Abbotsford International Airshow growing up. The rumble of the planes and the aerobatics made for an exciting excursion as a child.
With Canada 150 being celebrated this year though there is a new exciting addition to the Abbotsford International Airshow. This year they launch the Brew North Strong Craft Beer Festival.
The Airshow runs from August 11th – 13th, 2017. The beer fest runs all three days as well. The Airshow goes from 3-9pm Friday (Beerfest 3:30-9pm), 9am-6pm Saturday and Sunday (Beerfest 9am-6pm). The Airshow will have a selection of food trucks on hand for a good selection of foods.
The beer festival costs $10 per day with drink tokens costing $1.5 each. To gain access to the beer festival you will also have to have general admission tickets to the Airshow that will run you $26.25. When you think about it $36.25 is a really good price to attend a beer festival in British Columbia.
Here are some promo photos that were provided by the organizers taken by Sequel Photography.
The breweries that are involved at this point are as follows: Old Abbey Ales, Ravens Brewing, Hathi Brewing, Highway 97 Brewing, Chaos & Solace Brewing, Mt Begbie Brewing, Two Wolves Brewing, Cannery Brewing, Dead Frog Brewery, Granville Island Brewing and 4 Mile Brewing.
Here is their promo video that they shot
I would highly recommend that you check out this festival as it not only seems to have some really tasty beer that will be poured but there will also be some really planes preforming in the sky.
