Beer hops making a comeback in the Fraser Valley!
The brew culture in Abbotsford is booming and is now leading the way in kicking off Craft Beer Month in British Columbia. Abbotsford will host Canada’s first wet hopped beer festival on Saturday, October 3 at Kinloch Farm on Sumas Prairie.
Did you know: we’re now a month away from the 3rd Annual BC Hop Fest, BC’s only fresh Hop festival, to be held Saturday Sept 30th. What’s Brewing has been to both previous Hop Fests, and we can vouch for this event. It’s a unique festival in that it’s on a hop farm, and featuring at least three dozen different fresh hopped beers (which are amazing) along with many other beers on offer.
