RSVP You can sign up for free and RSVP here. Raffle tickets will be on sale at the event to support the cause.
The brainchild of Surrey Beer Club, where people can get together for a BC brew, is Scott Graham of Whats For Lunch BC and Surrey is the Bomb. “We chose the SMH Foundation because my daughter spent a lot of time in the NICU there,” Graham told me. “We wanted to do something to thank them for saving her life.”
It’s a fantastic opportunity for those from Surrey, Langley, and the valley to experience a craft beer event since we get spoiled with so many in Vancouver. It’s also the perfect time for those in Vancouver to cross the Fraser and discover what Surrey has to offer.
A shuttle bus will be running to and from King George SkyTrain station. It’s the regular Big Ridge shuttle that runs Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights from 8:00pm to close but it will have a special pick-up route for this event.
Important! There will be one main pickup at King George Station at 6:00pm and they will do more pick-ups if needed but you do need to call (778) 938-7433 to book your spot on the shuttle.
Participants can sample the cask and will be able to purchase additional beverages or food items from Big Ridge‘s menu throughout the evening.
Please consider joining us for this unique event — for a cause — that is hopefully just the first of many more to come.
