Penticton is now solidly known as a craft beer destination with four breweries now in operation – all four of which will be represented at this year’s festival.

Participating breweries are always eager to be part of the judging by craft beer enthusiasts and beer media to share in the spoils of the awards given out each year.  There are 11 new breweries attending the festival in 2018 that will all be vying to give festival veterans a run for their money.

This year, festival organizers partnered with local hoteliers to offer ‘Sip and Stay Getaways’ – festival and hotel packages offered at special rates that come with weekend festival passes for two.  Check out some of the options online to see the hotel packages available.
