Our festivals were born out of a passion to bring people together to celebrate local craft beverages, music, and food!
We throw the best craft beverage festivals
BC’s craft beer industry is booming, and we’re tapping into the extensive list of craft breweries that have opened up from the Lower Mainland to Vancouver Island to the Sea to Sky and Eastern BC. Our festivals are a gathering space for you to sip & sample the best of BC while enjoying live music from local artists who were born & raised here
Our team consists of people who are seriously passionate about events. Together we put on festivals that celebrate community, create memories & highlight amazing beer & music

wE SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY
Brewhalla is all about community, whether it’s showcasing local breweries, hiring local artists, partnering with local companies or supporting local charities. In 2017 at our first event, we created a scholarship that would fund a years worth of schooling for a student at the KPU Brewing & Brewery Operations Program. Since then, we have given out scholarships to 6 students. As we move into new cities, we are excited to give back to more charities, programs and initiatives that help strengthen our community.
Initiatives We Support
KPU Brewing Scholarship
We’re dedicated to the art of craft beer and helping someone achieve their dream to become a brewer, which is how the scholarship for Brewing Lab at Kwantlen Polytechnic University was born
The award is named after the late John Mitchell, the grandfather of the modern craft beer movement in British Columbia. Brewhalla is committed to providing at least one scholarship every year from their Fort Langley event
Criteria for the scholarship includes:
- A student who volunteers in the community
- An exceptional student with a GPA of 3.00 or greater
- A full time Brewing Diploma student completing their first year of the KPU Brewing Program and going into their second year of the program in the fall.
- Preference is given to student who is a Fraser Valley resident
Watershed BC works to strengthen BC’s watershed security by equipping & supporting local people and decision-makers like you with the knowledge, training, and networks you need to restore and secure your home watersheds.
To celebrate the main star in all our beverages, WATER, a portion of the 2023 Brewhalla Langley Loop Collab beer proceeds will be donated to Watersheds BC, a project hosted at MakeWay. Keep our waters fresh and clean for many more amazing craft brews to come.
North Van Cares
North Van Cares started during COVID, in March 2020, to help seniors and others in isolation get groceries, prescriptions…even beer! The response to volunteer was insane! 3500+ volunteers and counting!
The money Brewhalla gives to NVC goes straight to the people in need in the North Van community- from senior care to backpacks for kids, they have a heart for the community and are doing great things, we are proud to support them.
