Posted October 13th, 2010 - 3:38 am by from Montreal, Canada (Permalink)
Greetings Beer Lovers,

I thought some of you beer lovers might be interested in checking out this Harvest Beer Festival. I'm in Montréal at the moment, but it sounds like there will be some spectacular beer!

http://camravancouverharvest.eventbrite.com/

CAMRA Vancouver and The Railway Club are pleased to host the first ever Harvest Festival. This event will focus on pumpkin ales, seasonal releases and fresh hopped local craft beer, in casks, kegs and limited release bottles.The Railway Club will be putting together 3 special food items to purchase that will complement the harvest beers and the season.

Ticket prices are $ 20 for CAMRA /Railway members and $25 for non members. This includes a 4 ounce taster glass and "5" beer tokens. Additional beer tickets can be purchased for $1.

Tickets will be available to purchase in advance on-line as well as at:

Firefly Fine Wines & Ales on Cambie and The Railway Club on Dunsmuir.

There are a limited amount of tickets and we expect to sell out, so don't wait to get your tickets at the door and be disappointed!
