Come enjoy the vALEmount Craft Beer Experience. This two-day event starts on Friday June 16 at 8:30 p.m. and ends on June 17 at 10 p.m. The event is intended to support three local charities that give back to the community, Communities for Veterans, the royal Canadian Legion Branch 266, and the Valemont arts and cultural society.
There is more than beer on tap at this styled like a big 'ol block party. You can also sample ciders and wines and listen to musical artists like “Shred Kelly” and the “Athabasca BarnBurmers.” Be sure to also check out the food trucks serving up beverage-friendly dishes.
Barkerville Brewing Company
Established in the 1860s, Barkerville Brewery gained its flavour from natural spring water drawn from a nearby hill. Its lineup of beers also pays homage to the town's mining past with beers named 18 K Ale and White Gold. After the brewery burnt down in 1868 it was rebuilt in the nearby community of Quesnel, just 80 km from Barkerville.
