Rossland Beer Company wins first place at Beer Goggles Fest

Rossland Brewery won the first place prize for the second year in a row at the Beer Goggles Craft Beer Festival.

The local brewery won the first place prize for the second year in a row at Red Mountain Resort’s craft beer festival.

The third annual Beer Goggles Craft Beer Festival took place over the weekend and saw nearly 600 people come out to sample beers from ten BC breweries.

“This is the third year of the event and we’re going to keep it rolling year after year, adding new breweries, trying to switch it up and make it exciting for the guests,” said Nicole Briggs, marketing and events manager for Red.

This year saw two new breweries in attendance: Driftwood Brewery from Victoria and Bad Tattoo Brewing from Penticton. The other breweries in attendance were Rossland Beer Company, Stanley Park Brewing from Vancouver, Fernie Brewing, Mt. Begbie Brewing from Revelstoke, Central City Brewers from Surrey, Prohibition Brewery from Kelowna, Steamworks Brewery from Vancouver, and Nelson Brewing Company.

Festival attendees enjoyed samples out of mini beer mugs, BBQ and a DJ in an outdoor tent with heating and woodchip flooring.

Asked what his favourite beer was, enthusiastic festival goer Peter Worden said, “I’d go with with the Mt. Begbie scotch ale.”

But ultimately by the end of the festival, Rossland Beer Company was voted Fan Favourite of the Fest.

Second place went to Driftwood Brewery and third went to Stanley Park Brewing.
