What is Craft?
Craft is defined as: “an activity involving skill in making things by hand.” Craft gets tossed around quite a bit, but we hold true to our brand. We do not buy the High End (ABIn-Bev) or Tenth & Blake (MillersCoors), only the skill of the craft created by knowledge that has been handed down for generations will be showcased at our community festival. Our wineries are family owned, our breweries are smaller operations who care about their craft, and our craft cocktails are carefully concocted by expert craft mixologists. Come taste which craft your senses will fall in love with!
The Craft Beer & Wine Fest of Vancouver is an event that benefits Evergreen School District Foundation.
