Food trucks? I hear you gasp. In the village?? Yup! Some of Whistler's favourite food trucks will be setting up camp in the Olympic Plaza for all your hop-fuelled appetites. This year's line up includes Folie Crepes (the delightful French crepe wagon), Cravings Kettle Corn, the Teriyaki Boys (exquisite Japanese street food) and the Turmeric Trailer (a 100% plant-based Food Truck). Oh, and not to mention Grimms Fine Foods, who will be back serving up Bavarian Smokies and Sizzlin’ Wieners.

The week is showcasing over 120 beers in special events such as beer yoga, blind tastings and tap takeovers. Check out the full schedule here!

The main event is held on Saturday and Sunday at the Olympic Plaza. Dozens of craft breweries set up all around the square and festival-goers hop from stall to stall exchanging tokens for their choices of over a hundred different beers and ciders. And we are giving away 2 tickets so a lucky reader!
