“People are very into small, hand-crafted. They’re used to seeing it in their neighbourhood.”
– Harley Smith, Longwood Brewery
It’s really satisfying working with people who love what they do. Thanks to Ginger and the Okanagan Fest of Ale team for inviting us to be part of the 2017 event.
The Okanagan Fest of Ale was established in 1996 making it one of the largest and longest running annual beer festivals in the Pacific Northwest.
Operating as a non-profit society, managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the Okanagan Fest of Ale Society hosts an annual Consumer Craft Beer and Cider Tasting that functions to support and promote the growing world of quality craft brewery products, promote local tourism and support charitable organizations within the Regional District of the Okanagan-Similkameen.
As of October 2016, $577,660 in net proceeds has been gifted back to qualifying registered charities.
