The Brew North Strong Beer Festival at the Abbotsford Airshow

When: August 11 (3:30-9:00 pm) and August 12 -13 from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm (Yes that means morning drinking)

Where: Abbotsford International Airshow at the Abbotsford Airport

How Much? $40 ($25 for admission to the airshow, $15 to the beer fest and only $1.50 per token)

What’s it all about?

There’s a brand spanking new beer fest in town gang – Brew North Strong! I promise you, you won’t want to miss this one. It offers something no other beer fest around does – FREAKING AIRPLANES. While other beer fests are doing the same old thing, Brew North Strong is flying freaking airplanes over your dome. Imagine the office chatter on Monday… Your boring coworkers will be bragging about waiting in a long line for an over priced warm beer in a tiny glass after paying a ridiculous entry fee at their stupid Beer Fest. But you… YOU get to brag about lounging on a sweet piece of tarmac, watching freaking airplanes while sipping BC’s finest brews. Who do you think will win that round of “What did you get up to this weekend?”

There’s more to it

Apart from the obvious reason you should head out to Brew North Strong Beer Fest (Beer) and the second obvious reason (Freaking Airplanes), there’s another really important reason to get your lazy ass out there: They’ve brought in a great mix of Breweries that we’re not used to seeing. At all the major Beer Fests, we get used to the usual suspects and forget that there is this whole other world of Craft Beer in the Fraser Valley and beyond. Some of the breweries on the list I’m looking forward to include:

  • Hathi Brewing,
  • Highway 97 Brewery,
  • The brand new Two Wolves Brewing
  • Canada’s 2017 Brewery of the Year – Mount Begbie Brewing

Here’s how easy it all is to join in:

  • Step One – Buy yourself an Airshow ticket ($25)
  • Step Two – Add a Beer Fest Ticket on to that beauty of an Airshow ticket ($15)
  • Step Three – Drink Beer (Tokens are $1.50) and watch Airplanes (Free)

Need more input?

If you’re curious about how it’s all going down or want to buy tickets, follow this link –

If all this isn’t enough for you to grab a ticket today… I’m going and the usual rules apply, give me a high five and I’ll likely buy you a drink! See you all on the runway!
