Arrowsmith Rotary combines service with beer

The Arrowsmith Rotary club in the Alberni Valley is joining two of my favourite things: beer and volunteering. The 2011 Alberni Valley Hops Festival:

Ten Breweries highlight some of their specialties, while 6 food tables provide the food that one normally aligns with “beer drinking”. The night also features a silent auction table and entertainment will be provided by musician – Kevin Falkenberg.
Brewery Representatives include Granville Island Brewery, Howe Sound Brewery, Lighthouse Brewing Company, Longwood Brewery, Mark Anthony Distributors, Molson Coors, Pacific Western Brewing Company, Phillips Brewing Company, Vancouver Island Brewery, and Whistler Brewing Company.

Time for the event – starting at 6:00 pm for Industry Representatives by invitation, and then at 7:00 pm for the General Public.

Event to be held at Echo Centre – 4255 Wallace Street, in the Cedar Rooms.

The following local businesses will be providing the food samples for the evening: Harbour Pizza Factory, Pete’s Mountain Meats, Polly’s Pub, Port Pub, Westwind Pub and rounding out the evening is Serious Coffee.

ADSS Dry Grad will be on hand with their designated driving program, offering a Drive Home Service.

Ticket price: $30.00 per person.
