Craft Year, Craft Beer our fundraiser is coming up! If you love beer, the handmade and artisanal then you’ll love this beer tasting and competition. The event will be held on October 22ND, 2015 from 7:00 – 10:00 PM at VanDusen Botanical Garden and the money raised will support the CCBC and VanDusen.

During the event guests can sample craft beers from 16 local breweries and participate in a silent auction of hand-crafted beer-related items by local artists. The public tasting will determine the People’s Choice Award and we will also announce the pre-juried winner of Craft Year, Craft Beer 2015!

We believe the craft beer movement is one of authenticity and innovation, which is in the vanguard of the burgeoning market that values the physical hand of an artist.
