The Whistler Beer Festival is fast approaching (Sept 11-14) and to kick-start the event, they are hosting a "#SippySelfie" contest. In partnership with the Fairmont Chateau Whistler they've created the Ultimate Beer-cation, which includes a 3 night stay at their beautiful hotel along with tickets to all the Festival's seminars, cask contests and the main event.
To enter it is as simple as taking a selfie of you and/or your friends creatively drinking your favourite beer and tag @WhisBeerFest and #SippySelfie!
Don't miss out as there are only 40 cases of this rare beer available in BC.
Straffe Hendrik Wild (sku 872333) has just arrived (June 13 2014) and needs to clear customs before it is available in the distribution channel. Keep your eyes out for it because
Once it's gone....it's gone.
The original Straffe Hendrik Tripel has been re-fermented using wild Brettanomyces yeast. It is then cellared at Brouwerij de Halve Maan for 3 months before being released. The wild yeasts dramatically increase the already long shelf life of the beer and continue to develop its flavours for years.
Definitely a beer to cellar so you're able to enjoy the ever-evolving flavours for years to come.
Last year's Belgian Beer week at Sharkey's in Ladner was so popular they are doing it again this year.
Visit Sharkey's the week of June 9-15 (leading up to Father's Day) for Sharkey's Belgian Beer Week where they will be featuring a few amazing beers from Belgium and, or course, their delicious menu.
You buy the beer, you get swag and entered into a draw to win Whitecaps FC tix!
