We felt it was time for Vancouver to have a unique, style-forward festival. What makes Farmhouse Fest unique?
Well, let’s start with the experience of drinking great beer. We Chose Saisons and Wild Ales For a Reason Drinking a great beer is more than just putting the liquid into your mouth and swallowing. It’s an intense sensory event. Look at how the colour of the beer catches the sun’s rays. Listen to the faint pop of the slowly dissipating head. Stick your nose in the glass and breathe deeply. Faint hops? A bit of fruit? Maybe some acid? Then take a sip, close your eyes and enjoy the cool breeze blowing over you.
Hosting a festival outside isn’t just a location variable. It’s a deliberate decision made to reinforce the connection between what’s in your glass, and what’s in your surroundings. At the UBC Farm, those surroundings include forest, hop bines and an apple orchard. Beer doesn’t spring forth from nothingness. It’s planted, cultivated, harvested, and meticulously crafted into a delicious final product.
Join us Saturday, June 27 from noon to 6:00pm at the UBC Farm 3461 Ross Drive, Vancouver for an incredible craft beer experience.
