Bottoms up at Langley beer and wine fest

One of Langley’s most anticipated events is the Fraser Valley Cork and Keg Wine and Beer Festival.

Now in its fourth year, the festival will see a bit more space for guests to move, mingle, and chat with each other and wine makers and brew masters.

Organizer Kristine Carrick noted the number of tickets available has dropped to 400 from previous years’ levels to allow for more elbow room for patrons.

“We’ve actually chosen to reduce the number of ticket sales this year,” Carrick said. “We wanted to create more room this year and allow our guests more room to chat to the wine makers and brew masters.”

With the reduced number of tickets available, those planning to go should order their tickets online before Friday at www.corkandkeg.ca, although there may be a limited amount of tickets available at the door of the Cascades Casino just prior to the event.

Local fish monger One Fish Two Fish is again providing an oyster bar (while supplies last) and Carrick said this year also features the ability to pre-order beer or wine that may be a particular favourite.

“If you find a B.C. based beer or win you like, you can pre-order it,” she said. “You don’t have to order a case, you can order by the bottle.”

With more than 300 wine, beer, and spirits to taste, there’s bound to be something to love and want more of. But the event isn’t just about sampling, it’s also about supporting local.

“We’re celebrating community with our support of the Langley Community Farmers’ market,” Carrick said. “They will be there too, and as in past years, part of the proceeds will be donated back to the farmers market.”

A wide range of food, beer, and wine vendors will be on hand with everything from desserts to drinks.

Maple Ridge’s Bite Me Desserts, Dirty Laundry Vineyard, Mission Springs Brewing, and dozens of others will all be on hand in the festive celebration of local and all things delicious.

The $65 ticket price includes the evening’s live entertainment and all tastings.
