The week-long whisky, beer and spirit festival runs November 16 through 22 in Vancouver.

Celebrating its 20th birthday in 2015, Western Canada’s largest drinking festival is back, and with a new event.

The Hopscotch Festival, which runs today through November 22 at locations across Vancouver, has added a new “Beer-Only” tasting November 21 to its repertoire of more than 25 events.

Around 8,000 people are expected to come thirsty to the festival’s main event, the Grand Tasting Hall, which will put more than 300 varieties of Scotch, whisky, spirits and premium beers within arm’s reach. Also expect live Irish music and circulating trays of palate-cleansing bites.

The free ticket contest is now closed.
