Horseshoe Bay Craft Beer Festival at Sewell’s Breakwater

Event Details

Sewell's Breakwater

Saturday, June 13th, 2015 The Horseshoe Bay Business Association is pleased to invite you to our second annual CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL. Horseshoe Bay has long been a fan and supporter of Craft Beer in BC. It all started back in 1982 with some used dairy equipment, a little determination and some help from friends. John Mitchell started brewing Bay Ale at the Horseshoe Bay Brewery, to serve at the Troller Pub where he was the manager and co-owner. And the Craft Beer Revolution was started. Now 33 years later only a few steps from the where the original brewery stood, we are pleased to host this amazing craft beer event. Craft Beer has come along way from these humble beginnings with new breweries starting up all over the city, but we are proud to be home of the first and happy to share our great community with you all.
