Hopscotch Festival VANCOUVER'S PREMIUM WHISKY, BEER AND SPIRIT FESTIVAL November 21-27, 2016 Various Locations Vancouver, BC
The West Coast's long-running superior premium Scotch, Whisky and Beer festival is now the biggest combined Whisky and Beer festival across all of Canada. After yet another completely sold out festival in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, The Hopscotch Festival is ready in 2016 to impress Whisky, Premium Beer and Spirit enthusiasts alike.
From our humble beginnings 210 years ago as a one-night event exclusively serving Scotch and Hops based beverages, we've expanded Vancouver's tasting opportunities to include spirits, liqueurs and gourmet food in a week-long festival of events and tastings. The main event, our Grand Tasting Hall, has grown from 250 people to over 7500, including connoisseurs from all over the world and those of the highest level of trade. We continue to add more exciting Satellite Events over seven days of festivities... You might want to call in sick that week. Each year the festival improves it's educational component by giving enthusiasts the opportunity to learn, sip, and taste only the highest quality of liquors and premium beers. With more than 300 products available to taste, sample and discover — don’t miss this unique occasion of being able to truly experience some of your favorite brands and their world renowned brand ambassadors. In the weeks leading up to Hopscotch 2016 we'll be adding all sorts of Satellite Events and Master Classes to this year's program. Offering a variety of topics and tasting opportunities, from whisky and beer pairing dinners to brewery tours to cigar samplings to BBQ parties — our events and classes tend to sell out quickly!
Embarking on its third year, Top Drop Vancouver is a two day trade and consumer event being held at the Roundhouse in Yaletown and various Vancouver restaurants in September, bringing together a collection of small, hands on wineries, craft breweries, cideries and food purveyors who are passionate about their craft. www.topdropvancouver.com
LA SPINETTA expanded over the borders of Piedmont and acquired 65 hectares of vineyards in Tuscany, between Pisa and Volterra, to make three different 100% Sangiovese wines, as Sangiovese to La Spinetta is the true ambassador of the Tuscan terrain.
Top Drop Vancouver is a two-day consumer and trade event, bringing together a dynamic collection of wineries, along with a handful of breweries and food purveyors who are passionate about their craft. We believe in terroir-focused, hand-crafted wines, and the people behind them. We believe in the importance in farming one’s own fruit and/or being constantly engaged with grape-growers to ensure sustainability and a high standard of viticultural practices. We believe in wines that reflect their vintage, and wines that aren’t suffocated by vinicultural trickery. We believe in winemaking decisions that are made by a winemaker, not by a board of directors or marketing team. We believe in those who take chances. We believe these kinds of wines, wines of integrity, need a dedicated time and place to have their story told. This is why we've created Top Drop Vancouver, and we're incredibly excited to share these stories with you.
