Comox Valley Craft Brewery Virtual Happy Hour Series Continues

May 6, 2020

Comox Valley Craft Brewery Virtual Happy Hour Series Continues

Comox Valley, BC – Comox Valley Economic Development & Tourism (CVEDS), in collaboration with local craft breweries and the BC Ale Trail, are promoting a ‘buy local campaign’ to support increased awareness about the current modified services of the craft brewers and encourage residents to show their support for local producers.

The ‘Wish You Were Beer Comox Valley Craft Brewery Virtual Happy Hour Series’ was established in response to COVID-19, to encourage locals to pick up or order their favourite local craft beer, and in doing so, customers are provided with an All-Access Pass to the Virtual Happy Hour events featuring well-known Comox Valley musicians.

The concept arose as a result of the CVEDS investment in BC Ale Trail initiatives aimed at highlighting area craft brewers and the Comox Valley as a culinary destination. Due to COVID-19, a number of tactics planned for this past March and April were postponed or cancelled. As such, together with the BC Ale Trail and the participating brewers and businesses, CVEDS repurposed some of those funds to create a Virtual Happy Hour Series featuring:

  • Land & Sea Brewing Co., Friday, May 1, 5-7 pm, live streaming Helen Austin
  • Ace Brewing Co., Saturday, May 3, 5-7 pm live streaming Luke Blu Guthrie
  • Church Street Tap House, May 8, 5-7 pm, live streaming Elise LeBlanc
  • Gladstone Brewing Co., Saturday, May 9, 5-7 pm live streaming Easy Street
  • New Tradition Brewing Co., Friday, May 15, 5-7 pm live streaming The Looprechaun
  • Cascadia Liquor Store, Saturday May 16, 5-7 pm live streaming Sue Medley

Other supporting businesses have jumped in to sponsor the series in the hopes it encourages more support of local producers including DeLucaVeale Investment Counsel, RealStream Income Properties, Ivan Lee TD Wealth, Hollis Wealth, and Mindset Wealth.

“The financial advisors and partners that are sponsoring are proud to play a part in this wonderful initiative to showcase the talent we have in the Valley. We encourage everyone to join the Virtual Happy Hour and support the breweries, businesses and restaurants we all love,” said Robert Mulrooney, Mindset Wealth.
