6,000+ Attendees / Whisky Enthusiasts
NEW MANAGEMENT: Hopscotch is now a part of the ‘FEASTER’ Family!
Feaster is a Vancouver based company specializing in the production and marketing of all things food and drink. With 40+ years of production, over 100+ F&B events produced and in excess of 50,000 attendees each year to its f&b tasting events, there is no better team than Feaster to help VCBW continue to be the best event for breweries to showcase their beer at.
After long discussions with the HOPSCOTCH founders, it was agreed upon (between them and Feaster) to continue in the traditions that have made HOPSCOTCH the esteemed event that it has become. Although changes will be implemented to be able to produce HOPSCOTCH in a sustainable way, most of what HOPSCOTCH was (before the change) will remain the same.

- STEP 2 Hopscotch purchases beer from exhibitor (on consignment)
- STEP 3 Exhibitors present their beers to guests for them to sip, taste, sample & learn about
- STEP 4 Guests purchase their samples from Exhibitors using their cashless, RFID wristband
- STEP 5 Vendors leave happy knowing they have acquired (potentially) thousands of new customers and attendees leave happy knowing they have found the new breweries they will be supporting this year

10. BANG FOR BUCK
Hopscotch is bang for your buck marketing. Guests attend to have a great time and learn about the products that they are tasting. If they wanted to “just drink”, they would stay home or go to their local watering hole. They attend to sip, taste, sample and learn. Dollar for dollar, there is no better way to promote than glass to mouth.
