KAMLOOPS — If you can’t wait until Oktoberfest to get drinking, the Kamloops Beer Festival, better known as ‘Brew Loops’, might be the best place to get your fix for craft beer next month.

The four-day September festival with several events will take place at three craft brewery locations: The Noble Pig, Red Beard Cafe and Red Collar. Plus, the festival will make an appearance for tastings at the Kamloops Farmer’s Market.

Beers will be coming from around B.C. including Kamloops, Penticton, Squamish, Valemount, Gibsons, Victoria and Delta.

Events from Sept. 24 to Sept. 27 will feature tastings, but will also give locals a chance to meet with craft brewers and learn more about the process in education sessions. There will be concerts, a high-end cask and food pairing event, plus a morning brunch on the last day to have a little more beer — or maybe a couple of carbs to curb the hangover.

Hosted by Red Collar and the Noble Pig, the festival organizers are assisted by the city’s Rotary Club and Western Canada Theatre.
