Hopworks Urban Brewery – Vancouver Presents 2018 Cascadian Beer Fest

As Hopworks Urban Brewery continues its 10th anniversary celebration throughout 2018, it has announced the beer list for its next festival, 2018 Cascadian Beer Fest. This inaugural fest will take place on November 10th from 4:00-9:00pm at its Vancouver brewpub.

The Cascadian Beer Festbrings together twelve breweries from across the Cascadian Region to brew special beers inspired by Cascadia and brewed with ingredients from Cascadia. Inspired by the mission of 1% For The Planet, each brewery will also donate a portion of their beer’s proceeds to an environmental organization from their region.

Cascadia refers to the bioregion that encompasses the drainages of the greater Columbia and Fraser Rivers. This territory, extending over half a million square miles includes most of Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, and parts of Northern California and Idaho.
