Mount Washington kicks off its summer festival season with an annual favourite. Suds and Scotch, the finest beer and scotch sampling event of the summer, takes place this Friday, July 13th.
Suds and Scotch returns to the scenic Raven Lodge and the doors open at 6pm with sampling continuing to 9pm.
“This festival has it all,” explains Mount Washington Event Coordinator Marina Stevenson. “We have a great variety of beer and scotch along with an amazing view and the unique and upbeat sounds of Kytami.”
The Suds and Scotch event at Mount Washington has always been recognized for the quality of live music and this year is no different. Former Delhi to Dublin violinist Kytami promises to bring high energy and infectious beats to the evening. Known as a “violinist extremist”, Kytami will be throwing down some furious violin over beats by Vancouver DJ, ThePhonograff. It's an unbelievable combo and will mesh perfectly with the delicious scotch and brews available at the Raven Lodge Friday night.
In addition to the sizzling live music, the following breweries will be in attendance: Labatt's, Vancouver Island Brewery, Islander Lager, Driftwood Brewery, Tofino Brewing Company, Lighthouse Brewing Company, Granville Island Brewing, Phillips Brewing Company, Stanley Park Brewery, Grolsch Brewery, Innis & Gunn, Asahi, Whistler Brewing Co, Peroni and Hells Gate Brewing. Whiskey distilleries include Whyte & McKay Scotch, The Johnnie Walker Scotch Collection and Bulleit Bourbon.
Entry to Suds and Scotch is just $25 plus tax and includes five tasting tickets, a souvenir glass, and the chance to win great prizes. Additional tasting tickets can be purchased for $1 each during the event.
Mount Washington is offering free shuttle buses to and from the event. Shuttle buses depart at 5:15pm from the Zellers side of the Driftwood Mall in Courtenay and returns guests safely after the event. Bus capacity is limited and will accommodate passengers who request a ride online or by phone.
By far, the best way to enjoy your Suds and Scotch weekend is to make it an overnight experience! Suds and Scotch Getaway packages begin at $82* per person and include your festival ticket, one-night accommodation, and a breakfast buffet Saturday morning at Fat Teddy's Grill. *Prices are based on four people sharing a two bedroom condo.
