PHOTOS: Battle of the Brews raises $42K in Surrey

Close to 20 breweries were involved in the annual festival at Surrey Civic Plaza

Close to 750 people attended the Battle of the Brews event at Surrey Civic Plaza on Saturday (Aug. 24).

The sold-out beer festival was a third-annual fundraiser for Athletics 4 Kids and Surrey Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society youth initiatives.

“We grossed over $42,000!” Jordan Sadowski, a lead planner of the event, told the Now-Leader.

The $50-a-ticket event promised “a great afternoon of craft beer tasting, delicious food sampling” and alternative-rock music played by 102.7 The Peak radio station, from 1 to 5 p.m.

Twenty breweries were involved in the event.
