“Vancouver is widely considered the origin of specialty coffee culture, which is why we chose the city to host this year’s Beanstock Coffee Festival,” said Adrian Griffin, the producer of the Beanstock Coffee Festival. “In recent years, third-wave coffee – a movement towards high-quality, artisanal and fair trade alternatives – has skyrocketed, and this event allows us to pay homage to specialty coffee roasters driving the movement.”

The coffee

This year’s event is shaking things up with coffee from Pallet Coffee Roasters, House of Funk, Nemesis Coffee, and much more. Plus, guests can take part in a home brewing demo where pro baristas will show folks how to brew exceptional coffee at home.

The Greenhouse Stage (sponsored by Danone’s Silk plant-based products), will feature in-depth convos on sustainable coffee production. In terms of non-coffee-related activities, there will be food trucks and an open marketplace to peruse, as well as an outdoor lounge area.

The first-ever happy hour

Honestly, nothing sounds better than cold brew coffee on a hot day. But Absolut and Kahlua are taking it a step further with the festival’s first-ever happy hour! Cold brew-infused cocktails and music?? Count us in.

The festival will take place at the Roundhouse Community Center in Yaletown. Early bird tickets are available for $30 for each day, or $50 for a weekend pass.

All tickets include samples of handmade specialty coffees, a reusable ceramic Beanstock cup, and two sample bags of roasted coffee from the roaster of your choice. You can learn more about the lineup of events and more here.
