[M]ark your calendars for February 23, 2019, as Canada’s most stimulating coffee and beer festival, Hopwired, will make its intoxicating return. The first-ever Hopwired Festival in 2018 had guests buzzing about all the spectacular craft beers and specialty coffee, as well as excited for the event’s sophomore voyage. Attendees of the Vancouver, B.C., festival were able to taste coffees and beers from across Canada and the Pacific Northwest, attend tasting panels, and enjoy foods from a variety of local food trucks. Due to the continued interest from guests, organizers just announced that the festival is returning earlier than initially planned. This time, guests will be able to sample as many drinks as they wish, no tokens required, and organizers are doubling the amount of on-stage tasting panels. Attendees can also expect even more beers, coffees, cold brew, espresso, and decaf options to try.
