The second annual Beerfest will take place at Selkirk College on Saturday, Oct. 24.
Shannan Laktin, the Beerfest committee chair, says the event gives attendees the chance to taste “craft beers and ciders from around the province.”
There will be nine BC breweries and two cideries represented at the event:

There will also be live music by Robson-born musician Reiss Zibin.
The event is being hosted by the Castlegar Sunrise 2000 Rotary Club, and they have plan in place to get everyone home safe.
“There’s a free shuttle from the event to the Element, and we can provide a safe ride home for people that need it,” says Latkin.
Admission is $20 in advance and $25 at the door, and includes admission to the Element for the after party and one free beer token. Additional tokens are $2 each, and can also be used to purchase food.
