FIVE YEARS OF FUNDRAISING FOR ICE SPORTS!

January 22nd & 23rd, 2016

 

The Craft Brewers Cup starts Friday, January 22 at noon at the Woodland Ice Center in the heart of Woodland Park in Kalispell and runs until 11pm. Ten teams from the US and Canada will be playing on Friday and Saturday with guest appearances from a number of well-known NHL hockey greats.

 

The brew festival featuring Montana’s finest microbrews will begin at noon on Saturday.  Hockey will run from 8:30am to 9:30pm on Saturday. 

 

In addition to great hockey and great beer, former NHL great Bruce Bell will provide a youth hockey skills class from 11:00-12:00 on Saturday morning for kids ages 6-19.  The skill session is free but players must be able to skate and provide their own hockey gear.

I WENT TO A HOCKEY TOURNAMENT AND A BEER FEST BROKE OUT!

Don’t forget the Beer

 

Honestly, what goes better with Hockey than beer? Well, maybe the Stanley Cup, but none of us are ever going to hoist that . This tournament was hatched at the San Fransico Craft Brewers Conference about six years ago as a way to celebrate and combine a couple of our favorite things, fun hockey and GREAT BEER.

 

Western North America plays host to some of the greatest beers on the planet, and every year we have award winning breweries that donate their wares, sponsor teams and make our tournament happen! Stay Tuned right here as we update our participating breweries, beers and sponsors.

 

This year's BrewFest will begin Saturday, January 23 at 12:00 Noon!

 

Admission is $15, and includes a commemorative glass and your first three beers. See you there!
