What’s Brewing 2019
This past June, I returned to Nootka Sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island for a very special event: the second annual Craft Beer & Wilderness experience (CBW), hosted by Brad and Dennyse Harris. On a beautiful sunny morning in Comox, a group of avid beer and food lovers boarded a bus for a five-day adventure.
The size of the event and the remoteness of the location brought definite logistical challenges. There was the matter of transporting the beer Brad collected from brewers on the Lower Mainland, Sunshine Coast, and the Island. There was also the glassware (1200 pieces), brewing equipment, kegerators, and other details to take care of. The result of their dedication was a five-day itinerary that allowed for education, exercise and relaxation, beer tasting and exceptional food pairing experiences.
