The BC Craft Pavillion, Beers From Around The World, Whisky Corner, The Rose Garden (wine), Spirits Of The Globe and Craft Cocktails are some of the different areas with the hall this year. If you want beer, the beer will be in the beer section. Same with the whisky! Each area will be “vibed” differently, to really accent the theme of the respective product. LOCAL: BC Craft Pavillion
New for the very first time in Hopscotch Festival history, we will showcase all of the amazing BC Craft beers and spirits in the same pavilion. Sponsored by the BC Craft Brewers Guild, LOCAL will be split into two categories: BREWERIES and DISTILLERIES. This will offer an opportunity for guests to really see (AND TASTE) the magic that is BC Craft.
