Search for the Perfect Pint

The Search For the Perfect Pint event has been a staple in Port Moody for nearly two decades. It’s an all-inclusive craft beer celebration with various food options as well. Search For the Perfect Pint is a fundraiser put on by the Rotary Club of Port Moody. Proceeds from the event benefit local community projects.

The 2022 edition of the event takes place on Friday, May 6th, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. All of the breweries and food vendors that take part in the festival are local (or at least BC-based) including from the “Brewers Row” in Port Moody.

Location and Admission

Search For the Perfect Pint takes place at Port Moody City Hall, both indoors and outside. The venue’s address is 100 Newport Drive.

The event is held in the evening and is only for those who are ages 19+. Upwards of 500 or 600 people attend. Most of the crowd enjoys their food and beers outside (at least in years with good weather). Some breweries and food vendors also set up indoors.

One of the best parts of Search For the Perfect Pint is that it’s an all-inclusive ticket. Admission costs a flat rate of $50 for everyone with no more fees on top of that! Once you’re at the venue you can sample from all of the breweries and food vendors for no extra cost.

Admission also comes with a beer sample glass that you can keep. An important note is that attendees are not allowed to arrive at the venue intoxicated. Entry will be denied if that is the case (but why would anyone drink beforehand anyways).

What to Expect

There are usually two dozen or so different breweries and around 6 to 10 different food vendors that take part. The event isn’t meant to be one where you sit down by a single vendor and have a lot of just their products. You’re meant to move around and try plenty of different things!

Breweries participating in 2022 include The Parkside Brewery, Smugglers Trail, Mariner Brewing, Steamworks Brewing, Whistler Brewing Company, Moody Ales & Co, East Van Brewing Company and plenty more. Food vendors include St. James’s Well Pub, Pasta Polo & Brick Oven Pizza and Rocky Point Ice Cream.

There is usually live music playing at the venue as well. Details on any performances for 2022 are to be confirmed as of late April.
