Penticton, BC. The Penticton Ale Trail is taking a road trip to Vancouver. All five Penticton craft breweries that make up the Penticton Ale Trail are bringing a taste of Penticton’s finest craft beers to Vancouver. They are taking over the taps at St. Augustine’s Craft Brew House and Kitchen on Thursday March 8th.
Caroline Levy, General Manager of St. Augustine’s said, “Penticton was recently named by Expedia.ca as one of Canada’s Best Beer Towns. Many of us in Vancouver enjoy visiting Penticton and they have a great craft beer scene there. We are stoked to bring some of the great craft beers from Penticton to our customers here at St. Augustine’s.”
The Penticton Ale Trail, a part of the BC Ale Trail, is comprised of five craft breweries. The five craft breweries that make up the vibrant craft beer scene in Penticton include some of BC’s oldest and some of BC’s newest craft breweries. Penticton is also home to one of BC’s longest running craft beer festivals, the Okanagan Fest of Ale.
The five Penticton craft breweries include Bad Tattoo Brewing, the Barley Mill Brew Pub, Cannery Brewing, Highway 97 Brewery and Tin Whistle Brewing. Levy explained, “Each brewery will be featuring five beers during the tap takeover, for a total of 25 craft beers from Penticton on tap for this one night only.”
The tap takeover begins at 5:30pm at St. Augustine’s at 2360 Commercial Drive in Vancouver. A number of the team members from each of the Penticton craft breweries will be attending, so you can meet the teams and ask questions.
Levy continued, “There will also be prizes throughout the night including beer swag from the breweries and a fantastic grand prize. With every flight or glass purchased at the #PentictonAleTrail Tap Takeover, guests will receive an entry form to win the grand prize of a Penticton getaway! The grand prize includes a 2-night stay at the Ramada Penticton from April 13-15, 2018 for 2 adults, 2 weekend passes for the 2018 Okanagan Fest of Ale, plus a personal tour and a $50 gift certificate for each of the 5 Penticton breweries.” Now that is a grand prize!
