Brewhalla North Vancouver
The Brewhalla Festival is a new series of beer festivals in Metro Vancouver. Brewhalla happens 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 stops in North Vancouver this fall.
The North Vancouver Brewhalla event takes place on Friday, October 7th, in 2022. It’s held at the Shipyards at 125 Victory Ship Way. The event runs from 5:00 until 10:00 pm.
As with the other Brewhalla festivals, only people ages 19 and above can attend. There are over 50 different beers available 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.
As of early July, early-bird tickets cost $55 each. In September and the first couple days of October, general admission costs $60. Between October 2nd and 7th, prices increase by $5.
There is also another way to get less expensive tickets. Until the day of the event, packs of 6 tickets are available for about $225, which works out to roughly $45 per ticket including taxes and online fees. This is an even better deal than the early bird offer. To take advantage of it you just need to find five other people to go with you (which you’ll probably want to do anyway)!

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.
