Vancouver Craft Beer Week finished strong this past weekend with the biggest 2016 VCBW/Donnelly Group Festival yet, held at the PNE Centre Grounds.

VCBW may be over, but you can pick up a passport from any Donnelly pub, until June 15, and get stamped by drinking New Belgium Brewing craft for a chance to win a trip to Tour de Fat rolling bike and beer carnival.
