Brewhalla Beer Festival

 

The Brewhalla Beer & Music Series of Festivals

Brewhalla is a new addition to the summer events scene in the Lower Mainland. Between May and October in 2022 there are four festivals in different cities in the region. The first is in Fort Langley, the second is in Port Moody, the third is in North Vancouver and the fourth and final one is in Surrey.

Each of the Brewhalla events are for people ages 19+. The reason is because they are beer festivals. Around 30 different craft breweries took part in the Fort Langley event and the others are likely to all have at least 20.

In addition to all the beer stations at each of the events, there are food vendors and multiple live music performances to enjoy as you eat and drink. Exact details for each event will vary, but generally you can expect there to be raffles or giveaways as well as activities like cornhole (i.e., bean bag throwing) and other lawn games to play.

The 2022 Craft Beer Festivals

2022 is the inaugural year for the Brewhalla Festival. There are four stops for this year: one in May, one in August and two in October. Below are the locations, dates and other details for each of them.

 

Brewhalla Fort Langley

The first Brewhalla event was on Saturday, May 21st, in 2022. It was at Fort Langley Park at 9089 Nash Street from 12:30 to 6:00 pm. Tickets were $40 plus taxes and fees. Admission included a tasting glass and three drink tokens. Additional beverage samples cost extra.

Of the four Brewhalla events happening in 2022, the festival in Fort Langley was the only one that has happened in previous years too. In the past it was simply the Fort Langley Beer Festival. Now it’s “Brewhalla Fort Langley”. It’s pretty much the same, just with a different name and at a slightly different venue. In the past it happened just outside the Fort Langley National Historic Site. In 2022 it was at Fort Langley Park (which is about a kilometre west of the fort).

The food options at this venue included burgers, donairs, macaroni & cheese, acai bowls, donuts and more.

The musical acts scheduled to perform at this event in 2022 were as follows:

  • John Welsh and Los Valientes
  • Kardias Quing
  • Luc Lemans
  • Me and Mae
  • Myc Sharratt
  • Phil Bo
  • Sadé Awele
  • Tanner Olsen Band
  • Via Barcelonia

Brewhalla Port Moody

The Port Moody Brewhalla event is the only one of the four festivals that took place over two days. It happened on the Friday and Saturday of August 5th and 6th in 2022. The event’s hours of operation were from 4:00 to 9:00 pm on the Friday and from noon until 5:00 pm on the Saturday. The event took place at Inlet Field Park at 3024 Murray Street which is just a few blocks from Rocky Point Park.

Over 20 breweries took part in the event with over half a dozen food options as well. Tickets started at a little under $50.

Inlet Field Park is just down the street from what’s known as “Brewer’s Row” near Port Moody’s Rocky Point Park. This means that if this event isn’t enough for you, there are plenty more breweries not too far away!

The musical acts scheduled to perform at this event in 2022 were the following:

  • Jobe
  • Brother Luck
  • Hyaenas
  • Aza Nabuko
  • Shady & Con
  • Mikey Jose
  • Sam Chimes
  • Shaun Finn
  • Frase & Fawna
  • Syd Warwick
  • Yvonne Kushe
  • Raincity
  • Adam Thomas
  • Phil Bo
  • Brewhalla House Band

Brewhalla North Vancouver

The third stop of the Brewhalla tour in 2022 is in North Vancouver on Friday, October 7th, from 5:00 to 10:00 pm. The event takes place at the Shipyards. One of the most popular places for events on the North Shore, the venue is at 125 Victory Ship Way. It’s about a 5-minute walk from the SeaBus terminal near the bottom of Lonsdale Avenue.

Early bird tickets were on sale in July for around $55 each. As of mid-September, general admission costs about $60. On the day of the event tickets cost $70. There are a couple dozen different breweries featured at the event, plus a variety of food trucks. The musical acts scheduled to perform this year include:

  • Caleb Hart
  • Ryan McAllister Band
  • Olin Brix
  • Chersea
  • DJ Flipout
  • Trilojay
  • The Big Coast

At the North Vancouver event there will no doubt be lots of North Shore breweries represented. One of our favourites is Deep Cove Brewers. Their brewery is at 2270 Dollarton Highway (which is about halfway between the Village of Deep Cove and North Vancouver’s Shipyards District). Deep Cove Brewers has a really nice outdoor patio, and live music certain days of the week. Their beers are also really good. Our favourite is their pale ale.

ALCOHOL-FRIENDLY PLACES IN NORTH VANCOUVER

Interestingly, the City of North Vancouver was the first municipality in British Columbia to allow the drinking of alcohol in designated public parks and other outdoor spaces. Shipbuilders’ Square at the Shipyards is one such place. To learn more about this and other places on the North Shore where you can crack open a cold one without the risk of getting arrested, see our article about North Vancouver Alcohol-Friendly Parks.

Brewhalla Cloverdale

Added a little later than the other three, the final Brewhalla event in 2022 is in Surrey on Saturday, October 29th. This event takes place at the Cloverdale Agriplex at 17798 62nd Avenue. There is free parking available at the site itself on a first-come, first-served basis.

As of the end of July there weren’t many details on what exactly is in store for this event. In terms of the general structure it should be fairly similar to the other Brewhalla stops. Expect a couple dozen or so breweries, a number of food options and live music as well. Tickets will likely go on sale either later in the summer or at the beginning of the fall.

To give you an idea of what to expect at a Brewhalla event, check out the videos below. The first one shows scenes of the festival in Port Moody in 2022. The second one is of the event in North Vancouver later in the same year.

 

Brewhalla North Port Moody Video

As you’ll see in the following video, there were lots of beer vendors at the Port Moody event, and the number of attendees was very reasonable. When we went you didn’t have to line up for a long time to get your samples. There was also live music to enjoy and food trucks to buy all kinds of tasty treats from. The weather on the day was also perfect for beer drinking!

 

 

Brewhalla North Vancouver Video

The same as the event in Port Moody, Brewhalla North Vancouver was also awesome. It took place at the Shipyards in October. Over half the event was outside, but in a large covered area. Not shown in the video are vendors which were also set up indoors in the Pipe Shop.

The band featured in this video is Trilojay.
