And now with Phillips' tasting room you've got a plethora of their beers at the ready whenever you are.
Great Canadian Beer Festival

And if you feel like sitting outside, the Drake's patio in Market Square has been my favourite spot this summer to have a beer from their also quite extensive list.

I don't think anyone really comprehends what a dire state the gcbf is in right now. I don't know whether it's red tape or what but between the price increases & other beer events on throughout the year I don't think it can last more than 5 more years. Either it will become just a BC thing or it will move somewhere else, or both. It had a good run I guess. It would be great if the city didn't charge for the venue as at some events in Oregon.
They priced themselves out of the market. $50 to get in and then the equivalent of $8 a beer for what you can essentially get many places in town was outrageous.

Haven't seen anything official, but it's WAY too late to do anything this year. The red tape alone, never mind booking breweries from all over the province...

I hear the organizers are looking to put together a couple smaller scale events in place of the full festival. Seems like they are waiting to have these plans in place before making an 'official' announcement on cancelling the 2021 festival.
