The Gunbarrel Saloon at Apex Mountain Resort is the venue for the 1st Annual Apex Brewski on Feb 22nd. This exciting event will feature wonderful craft beverages combined with great food from the Gunbarrel and live entertainment!

“Our local craft beer, cider and spirits scene rocks! We decided to hold an event that gives our skiers and boarders an opportunity to sample the unique flavours of our local beverage providers. We have a very big après ski scene here at Apex and our locals love craft beer and other unique hand-crafted beverages. I thought it would be a great fit to showcase these awesome beverages and allow our guests to meet the people behind these great beverages in a fun, social format”, explained Kerissa Martin, Apex Guest Services Manager.

“After the great success of our 1st annual Vertical and Vintages wine event last season, we decided to expand and take the same format and apply it to our Apex Brewski event”, continued Martin. “Apex has a unique vibe, and a local craft beer, cider and spirits event like this with live music and the opportunity to ski all day seems like the perfect fit.”

The awesome beverage providers that have confirmed attendance so far are: Barley Mill (Penticton), Cannery (Penticton), Firehall (Oliver), McClelland Premium Imports (Penticton), Mt. Begbie (Revelstoke), Tin Whistle (Penticton), Tree (Kelowna), Left Field Cider (Mamette Lake), Rustic Roots Cider (Cawston), Summerland Heritage Cider (Summerland), and Maple Leaf Spirits (Penticton).
