Armstrong IPE gets licensed area for beer, ciders
For the first time, the Armstrong Provincial Exhibition and Stampede will serve local beer and ciders.
The Armstrong IPE announced its new Haystack’s Backyard Family Patio last week and the area features local craft beer and ciders.
Cider and beer options are available from Rustic Reel, Farmstrong Cider, Red Bird Beer, Shuswap Cider, Mt. Begbie Brewing Co. and Upside Cider.
The Armstrong IPE is one of the North Okanagan’s biggest events and is returning after years of cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fall fair, rodeo, music, farm animal contests and other events will take place Aug. 31 to Sept. 4 for its 121st year.
Each year, the event draws thousands of people.
