In October, we like to cheers to our favourite beers by celebrating Craft Beer Month. This year, we celebrated our 8th annual Harrison Beer Festival! The Harrison Beer Festival is comprised of 3 events; Cask Night, Beer Festival, and the Oktoberfest Dance.  Each event includes access to a themed buffet, provided by the Harrison Hot Springs Resort. Look for tickets in early August 2020. 

On Friday, October 25th, we welcomed back Cask night! Cask Night's theme is Irish Party!  With live Irish music performed by our house band Blackthorn, 10 tasty casks, and fun games; including lucky charms. Wear your tartans and your green!

The Beer Festival Tasting took place on Saturday, October 26th, this is where we welcome 21 craft breweries to the St. Alice Hall. Bringing you the best breweries in BC that surely should not be missed. One lucky brewer will take home the coveted First Prize Best beer award, chosen by you! Vote on-site for the Best Beer! Take a look to the left for 2019's lucky winners!  Look for tickets in early August!

A beer festival in October would not be complete without an Oktoberfest Dance! On Saturday October 26, the Beer Barrels Band got us up and dancing the polka and the chicken dance! During the break, we enjoyed German-themed games; including the hilarious Das Boot non-alcholic beer drinking competition.  Try traditional German beer or some of BC's best german-style beer! 

Tickets will go on sale in early August, get your tickets early as they sell out fast!  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 8 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.
