thank you to everyone who attended, was involved, and supported the 5th Harrison beer festival. It was another fantastic event. 


2017 dates will be October 27 & 28. Mark your calendar as tickets will go on sale in august.





in 2016 we celebrated our 5th birthday in a few new ways!  Each event includes access to the buffet. Cask night theme has changed to an Irish Party, with live music, and 8 casks. Wear your tartans and your green. Saturday afternoon tasting sees over 20 craft breweries to the St. Alice Hall. Breweries are still signing up but you know its not to be missed. Tickets sell out each year! Then a beer festival in October would not be complete without an Oktoberfest Dance. Join the Beer Barrels Band and new this year the Alpen Plattlers performing Schuhplattler. Say what? Guess you will just have to attend to see what it is all about. :)

Tickets go on sale in August. For prices and details check out the different headings at the top of the page. 

Thank you to all those that attended and supported the event these last 4 years. We are excited to bring you another year of Beer, and Fun in beautiful Harrison Hot Springs. 

Think about making it a weekend getaway. There are hotel packages available, hot springs to enjoy, restaurants to dine in. Plus eagles are starting to dine on the spawning salmon. Fall is the perfect time of year to take a boat tour down the Harrison River to see this spectacular site of thousands of eagles. 




Will bring in up to eight of BC's best craft breweries, for an evening of friendly competition  comparing a variety of unique, one of a kind brews. With a warm and friendly Irish pub feel complete with food, music and games.
