A caskalicious Brew Year’s Eve at Central City’s original location

Bringing together two traditions: a New Year’s Party and a Cask Festival in one

Have you ever attended a Central City Brewing Cask Festival? They happen twice a year, Winter and Summer. Any beer enthusiast in the BC Lower Mainland should put those events on their calendar. But while you wait for the next CCB fest, there’s a way to get your cask fix plus attend a New Year’s dance as well.

A Little History

BC Lower Mainland cask beer festivals were popularized over a dozen years ago at Dix BBQ & Brewery (now Central City’s Beatty Street location, but that’s jumping ahead). Eventually the Dix Caskivals died along with the brewery itself.

Casks at Central City Surrey

The first brewery to step up and create a series matching the quality of those Caskivals was Central City, whose Surrey location (their only location at the time) started hosting top-notch cask events in 2008. Over the years, countless great memories have been made at Central City’s extravaganzas. The Surrey brewpub’s expansive but channeled layout made for a wide distribution of the many casks available, causing much mingling, socializing and discussion of beer. See photos below of what to expect at a Central City event.

New Year’s Cheer

The Surrey brewpub has hosted many New Year’s Eve parties over the years. But this year’s event, held Monday December 31st, is special because it’s merging two great traditions: a CCB New Year’s Eve dance and a cask fest!

The Surrey brewpub steps away from a Skytrain station. This stunning glass-enclosed facility is where the Central City empire was born, and it’s a great location you should experience if you haven’t before.

The Brew Year’s Eve Cask Ball features live music, 15 casks, finger food, whisky bar, champagne, prizes and giveaways. Tickets are available at Eventbrite here.
