Beer by the Pier returns in June with a waterfront celebration of community

As summer approaches, Metro Vancouver is filled with mouthwatering food and drink events, and we have another one you need to add to your schedule.

The annual Beer by the Pier, presented by Darwin Properties Ltd., is happening on Saturday, June 15, at The Pipe Shop in North Vancouver.

The delicious event will serve a wide variety of beers, cocktails, mocktails, and wines. It is also an important fundraiser for Family Services of the North Shore (FSNS), and tickets are on sale now.

“Beer by the Pier presented by Darwin Properties Ltd. is a highlight event for the Agency and our North Shore community,” FSNS told Daily Hive. “Since 2015, we have been coming together to sip, snack, mingle, and, most importantly, raise funds to support our programs.

“This year’s proceeds from Beer by the Pier directly support children and youth mental health programs.”

FSNS is a non-profit, community-based agency that has offered counselling, support, education, and volunteer engagement opportunities for over 60 years to the community. Its annual Beer by the Pier has raised over $600,000 since 2015.

The signature summer event will treat guests to five tastings, live music by Adam Woodall, a silent auction with items donated by North Shore businesses, a 50/50 raffle, and a Smoke & Bones BBQ dinner.
