Friday, July 22nd, 2022 5pm – 9pm & Saturday, July 23, 2022 3:30pm – 7:30pm

Tropical Vibez and High Fives!

Our 7th Annual Beer Goggles Craft Brew Fest was a hiiiiiit! Thank you to everyone who came out July 22 & 23 for some summer fun and for all the breweries making it one seriously tasty weekend! After a 3-year COVID-forced hiatus, we were so thrilled to bring back Beer Goggles in a brand-new summer format! The sun was out, beers were flowin’, beats were bumpin’ and beach balls were flyin’ through the air. Check out the recap video and all the photos from this epic event!

The Microbrew Mob: Summer Time Sippin’!

We can’t believe it either! IT’S BACK! For those newbies, Beer Goggles intermingles the finest craft breweries, thirstiest beer enthusiasts, and hungriest outdoor adventure fans at one of North America’s finest resorts for a weekend of fun and foam. After 6 glorious years, COVID forced a 3-year hiatus, but we’re thrilled to bring back Beer Goggles in a brand-new summer format!

“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.”

For its 7th hop-inducing, sud-soaking year, Beer Goggles is slated for Friday and Saturday, July 22nd and 23rd, bringing in some of BC’s best craft breweries at the base of the mountain. Get ready for tunes to groove to, food to fill the stomach, and of course a beer in your hand, all surrounded by the beauty and glory of RED Mountain.
