In another week, Esther Short Park will be home to the 7th Annual Vancouver Brewfest as it returns from August 10-11, 2018. With plenty of craft beer to be had, this is surely the event to be at while enjoying some of the regions best craft beers.
Each summer the Vancouver Brewfest brings together craft brewers to raise funds for various charities. Since the festival’s inception in 2012 it has raised over $42K for local charities. A few of the charities that have benefited from this annual brewfest are Second Chance Companions, local Disabled American Veterans, Mt. St. Helen’s Institute and Northwest Battle Buddies!
When the brewfest returns it will serve over 100 craft beers, ciders and meads. In addition to the drinks being poured the festival features local food and live music.
