Kamloops' semi-annual beer festival Brewloops will return near the end of September with a garden party on the shores of the Thompson River.
Among the breweries, distilleries and cideries at the Sept. 24 event will be six local producers and 15 others from across the rest of B.C., including Penticton's Neighbourhood Brewing, Valemount's Three Ranges Brewing and Slow Hand Beer Company out of Vancouver.
The location, in the 200-block of Royal Avenue on the North Shore, may be unique to this year as the event will be held on the future grounds of Thompson Landing — a riverfront condo development set to be completed in the fall of 2023.
Entertainment for the event will include wacky activities, food trucks and a number of bands and performers.
Headlining the music side of things will be Juno-nominated Vancouver indie group Yukon Blonde. Other artists on the docket include Aidan Knight (Victoria), Babe Corner (Vancouver), Doohickey Cubicle (Vancouver), Fonk Beam (Kamloops) and The Dungbeatles (Kamloops/Merritt).
Tickets to the event are $50, which includes $12 worth of drink tickets, access to 20 craft beers, ciders or gins, live music and access to on-site food trucks.
Tickets can be purchased at kamloopslive.ca.
The doors will open at 3 p.m. and drink tickets will be sold at the event.
