At the recent Gibson’s Finest Iron Bar Competition and Molson Brewery experience I got to learn the ropes when it comes to tasting some mighty fine spirits. This week all are invited to attend the 12th annual Hopscotch Festival around Vancouver to sip and sample whisky and premium beers from around the world.
In addition to our two-day Grand Tasting Hall The Hopcotch Festival offers a series of Satellite Events at various locations throughout the city over the course of the week, including: Whisky 101, Morrison-Bowmore Whisky Pairing Dinner, Molson Brewery Tour (sold out), Highland Park Dinner, The Great Whisky Smoke, Whisky 201, The Macallan Dinner, Master Special Release Malt Tasting [Events]
There are also two nights of the “Grand Tasting Hall” experience at the Rocky Mountaineer station. November 13th and 14th from 6:00pm – 10:00pm, you receive 5 tasting tokens and a tasting cup for your $40 ticket. On the 14th there is a limited amount of VIP tickets for $60 that get you 10 tasting tokens.
This year Hopscotch will also include a spirits section, that will feature tequilas, rums, gins, and vodkas.
