Beers, Bloodys & Blues

Vancouver needs blues... and bloodys! We find the gritty blues you can't help but stop and soak in.  Grab a bloody, a beer, glass of wine or cocktail, and enjoy some damn good music.  Bring a lawn chair (36" tall or shorter), make yourself comfortable! All day Sunday, starting from Noon-close!

Craft Bloodys also served Friday and Saturday.  Why hold back a great thing?

Sponsored by Oliver's Gourmet. Stop by their booth and get your free samples while you're at the festival.

VIP

Enjoy a craft cocktail in our exclusive TwinStar Credit Union VIP pavilion! VIP tickets include meals, cheese plates, table seating and more! If you plan on staying a while, VIP is the way to go!  Reserved VIP tables are available upon request.

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 products from 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.

The Craft Beer & Wine Fest benefits Evergreen School District Foundation.

As a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Evergreen Public Schools, the ESDF partners with our community to bridge the basic needs gap, foster innovative and engaging learning experiences and maximize opportunities to ensure that all students have access to a world-competitive education.
