The Coquitlam Craft Beer Festival was created by West Coast Experiences as a way to support an amazing charity in the community and encourage local beer and food lovers to experience the best BC has to offer.
The venue at the Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club has proven to be a great fit for this tasting. The unique West Coast inspired building encourages the enjoyment of an indoor tour of many different craft breweries, local restaurants and caterers.
The Spring 2018 event will feature brews from over 40 select BC breweries, matched with delicious foods provided by 8-10 top-rated local restaurants and caterers. A complete vendor list is available on the home page. The Coquitlam Craft Beer Festival is thrilled to partner with Team Taylor of The Ride to Conquer Cancer.
The Ride to Conquer Cancer, presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a unique two-day cycling event which will take place in the summer of 2018. During this bold cycling journey, members ride for two days through picturesque scenery. Their vision is clear – A World Free From Cancer. For more information on Team Taylor click here.
