People are already talking about the revamped Whisky Corner – an event within an event. Over 120 whiskies will be displayed within this new showcase at Hopscotch. From Single Malt Scotch, to Blends, from Irish to Japanese, from Bourbons to Ryes and everything else.

Unlike last year and years prior, the booths at Hopscotch will be in categories. The BC Craft Pavilion, Beers From Around The World, Whisky Corner, The Rose Garden (wine), Spirits Of The Globe and Craft Cocktails are some of the different areas within the hall this year. If you want beer, the beer will be in the beer section. Same with the whisky. Each area will be “vibed” differently, to really accent the theme of the respective product being showcased.

Presented By Hendrick’s Gin and Monkey Shoulder Whisky, the Craft Cocktail Showcase will not only offer different specialty cocktails created in partnership with some of the best mixologists within Vancouver, but as well, will showcase the “Hendrick’s Cocktail Configurator”, a life size cocktail art piece that creates the perfect Negroni as well as Monkey Shoulder’s “Hello Monkey Trolley” which will mix the concept of a great cocktail with vibes of iconic 80s and 90s Hip Hop.

From the start of the tasting to the end, guests can enjoy a brew while hanging out in front of the stage or rather be enjoying the sounds as they walk the floor.

The food exhibition has been bulked up over last year and will have some of the best food one can enjoy – so come hungry. Snacks, as well as full-sized dinners, will be available. This year will are bringing in celebrity chefs and premium restaurants from around the city including The Pawn Shop, Steel Toad, La Pentola, and others. This will be a food showcase unlike any year prior.

Instead of wasting hundreds of thousands of sheets of paper on the connoisseur booklet, the show now uses a digital platform via the Hopscotch App.

There is coat check once you walk-in, an on-site liquor store, and a smoking tent onsite as well.

The Grand Tasting Hall always takes place on the Friday and Saturday night during the festival week. On each of the nights, there is a public event.
