Brewhalla North Vancouver
The Brewhalla Festival is a new series of beer festivals in Metro Vancouver. Brewhalla happened in four different cities in 2022. There was already an event in Fort Langley in May followed by an event in Port Moody in August. Before finishing the season in Cloverdale at the end of October, Brewhalla stopped in North Vancouver in the fall.
In 2023 Brewhalla North Vancouver takes place on Friday, April 14th. It’s held at the Shipyards at 125 Victory Ship Way. The event runs from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
The Brewhalla festivals are open only to those aged 19 and over. There are over 25 different breweries at the North Vancouver event, in addition to a number of food trucks and live entertainment.
Admission to Brewhalla
Ticket prices for the North Vancouver Brewhalla event vary depending on a couple of factors. Costs increase as the event gets closer, so the earlier you buy your tickets, the better. All tickets include 3 tasting tokens and a glass.

Tips and Advice
Below are some suggestions and extra information to help you make the most out of your experience at Brewhalla North Vancouver.
TIP#1: Don’t drink and drive! Plan in advance how you’ll get home.
TIP#2: Take public transit if you can. The SeaBus terminal is just a five-minute walk away and Waterfront Station, on the other side of the water, connects conveniently with all SkyTrain stations within the Lower Mainland.
TIP#3: If you like beer (like we imagine you do if you are reading this article), then be sure to also check out Brewhalla Cloverdale which likely takes place later in the year. It was a beer, music and Halloween-themed event in 2022! Soon after, in November, there is also Vancouver’s North Shore Craft Beer Week.
