McGregor's was turned into a beer hall

First Revelstoke Bier & Musik Fest goes off

The first Revelstoke Bier & Music fest packed the Last Drop and McGregor's on Saturday.

The first Revelstoke Bier & Music fest delivered on its promises – lots of ale flowing and lots of great music.

The festival took over the Powder Springs, with McGregor’s, the Last Drop and the patio all being put into use. McGregor’s was turned into a beer hall, where the U-Brew and Mt. Begbie served up the ale while a rotating cast DJs played music and a buffet dinner was served.

In the Last Drop, several bands played throughout the afternoon, highlighted by local duo 45 Minutes. At night, new local band Classically Spun kicked things off, followed by Nelson’s Vortex and the always fun Shane Philip.

Organizers hope to turn the event into a major festival in the future.
