A bit of history…

With all the new American, European and Southern Hemisphere beers coming into the market,several of us, including CAMRA BC  members (Campaign for Real Ale) felt that there was a real need to help promote BC’s finest. But, not just a week, but for a month of celebrations! We made it  official, applied to the BC Government and the month of October was chosen.On October 1st, 2011, the framed proclamation was received and John Mitchell, one of the men that paved the roads for the BC Craft beer industry was there to be apart of this special occasion.We have never turned back!
