Whistler is a popular destination for travellers and tourists all year long, and while I adore the winter season (and all the snow! and all the skiing!), there’s something about summertime in Whistler that has my heart. It’s a gorgeous and pretty little village full of excitement and fun things to do, surrounded by sweeping mountain ranges.
How can you go wrong when there’s beer added to that equation?
The second annual Whistler Village Beer Festival took place last weekend, it was full of fun debuachery, craft brewing companies, foosball & frisbee, and even a roasted pig dinner!
The festival has gained popularity since last years’ event, and fellow beer enthusiasts came from all over to taste craft beers from British Columbia, Canada, and the rest of the world. Clear blue skies and the bright sunshine held up all weekend long and really made it feel like summer.
We also visited Brickworks to enjoy their ‘Triple B’ event showcasing BBQ Bob’s delicious roasted pig paired with a spectacular selection of BC craft beers.
Every year festival goers vote for their favourite brew, and this year’s Best in Fest award went to Parallel 49, with Whistler Brewing Co and Old Yale Brewing taking second and third place, respectively.
If you missed the sunshine and revelry at Whistler Village Beer Festival this year, mark your calendars because next year it’ll be back September 17th to 20th, 2015.
