Beer Goggles intermingles the finest craft breweries, thirstiest beer enthusiasts, and hungriest powder fans at one of North America’s finest resorts for a weekend of fun and foam. Last year was a rousing success as we continued into our 5th year with another sold out 2-day event. “Beer Goggles is not simply a beer festival, but a celebration of the craft beer industry,” says Don Thompson, GM of RED Mountain Resort. “And RED is kind of the ‘craft beer’ of ski resorts: better taste, less filler! We really feel a common bond with many of these breweries and respect their daring independence and devotion to making people happy.”

RED Mountain Resort’s Beer Goggles 2019 Craft Brew Fest is back for its 6th hop-inducing, sud-soaking year in a row. Slated for March 15th and 16th, this growler of a fest has 2x 1 day events, Friday and Saturday, bringing in some of BC’s best craft breweries at the base of the mountain. Get ready for tents over your head, tunes to groove to, food to fill the stomach, and of a course a beer in your hand – all right on the snow next to the famous Red Chair!

The following breweries will be represented on both Friday and Saturday:

  • Angry Hen Brewing – Kaslo
