BC Beer awards 2014

The BC Beer Awards were presented to a packed house last weekend, with a number of new and established breweries taking home top honours for the year.

The BC Beer Awards are the highlight of Craft Beer month here in BC, and this year was no exception with a number of new craft breweries looking to snag the awards from long-time breweries.

Some of the repeat winners of the night included Steamworks, Parallel 49, Moon Under Water, Dead Frog and Brassneck. But the surprise win of the night went to Port Moody’s Yellow Dog Brewing, despite only having been open since July.
