#YVRBeerTweetup Presents: The River Boat Throwdown! - VCBW Feature Event

#YVRBeerTweetup and The Portside Pub proudly present The Riverboat Throwdown! This night will consist of a 10 brewery "Cask-Off" battle made up of specialty designed casks to showcase the creativity of the Vancouver brewing scene. Casks will be updated here as they are confirmed. Think White Oak Spirals soaked in bourbon!

#YVRBeerTweetup will be pushing the competition and keeping the social media world up to date by the minute with live results! Voting will be done at the pub with various brewery awards.


Tickets are only $25 - Admission gets you 'casino' playing tokens, a VCBW tasting glass, a ticket for one 4oz. cask taster, and live ragtime/swing music. Additional cask tickets are only $1 each!

In keeping with this year's VCBW theme, The Portside Pub will be decked out like a riverboat casino. Attendees will be able to take part in one of 5 casino games maintained by professional dealers, served by ladies and gentlemen in true 'saloon style' costume, all while drinking delicious cask beers and special draught brought in only for VCBW.

There will be prizes and other fun surprises throughout the night. To cap things off there will be live performances by ragtime & swing bands that will push the party into the wee hours of the night!

Attending in costume is strongly recommended!
