PENTICTON - Penticton is providing a good reason to visit the city between Oct. 19 to 26 - it’s Beer Week.

The first annual Penticton Beer Week is a celebration of the city’s local craft beer industry. With seven local breweries, it's not just about wine, beaches and peaches anymore.

The Peach City is also becoming known as a craft beer town, so much so Expedia recently recognized Penticton as one of Canada’s best beer towns for the second year in a row.

“Penticton Beer Week will kick off on Saturday, Oct. 19 with the annual Penticton Oktoberfest. There will be a number of craft beer related events at breweries and local restaurants around Penticton throughout the remainder of the week,” co-organizer Kim Lawton said.

A limited release special collaboration beer has been created by seven Penticton breweries which will be launched in draft format at the breweries and a number of local restaurants during Beer Week.

The beer will be known as Community Common and will also be available in four packs at private liquor stores in the Penticton area.
