Superflux may have officially opened a while ago (August 2020), but because of the pandemic, it never had the chance to have a proper party to celebrate. Finally, the brewery has announced that it’ll be hosting a F*$king Awesome Festival on September 24. Tickets are $125, but that includes unlimited beer, booze, and food. There will also be limited-release collaborations, food provided by some of the top local restaurants (like Anh and Chi and Meat and Bread), and some musical performances.
When: Saturday, September 24; two four-hour sessions are available, from noon to 4 pm or 6 to 10 pm

In addition to Parallel 49’s regular beer lineup, the brewery will have four feature Oktoberfest beers: a German Pilsner, Hefeweizen, Schwarzbier, and Festbier. These will also be served in classic dimpled beer steins, adding to the Oktoberfest vibes.
The event will also feature an Oktoberfest-themed food menu, with dishes like Bavarian pretzels with mustard, Bratkartoffen (crispy potatoes with onion, caraway seed mayo and dill), fully loaded currywurst, and schnitzel sandos on offer, to name a few.

It may be odd that Oktoberfest happens in September, but if it means we get to indulge in German-style fare and beer sooner, than so be it. Bells & Whistle’s special Oktoberfest-style menu, called their Wunderbar, returned last Saturday and will be on offer at their Fraser Street location until October 3. Expect pretzels, currywurst, schnitzel, and German beers.
When: Saturday, September 17 to Monday, October 3
Where: Bells & Whistles, 3296 Fraser St, Vancouver

A Tacofino and Mr. Bannock (Paul Natrall) mashup is returning for a second year this September with a Wild Bison Taco made with ethically raised bison, seasonal Chilliwack corn purée, spicy pineapple salsa, and sweet and sour onions on a corn tortilla. The collaboration, available from September 1 to September 30 at Tacofino Ocho, will aim to highlight traditional Indigenous ingredients. Proceeds will be donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
Both the Tacofino food truck and Mr. Bannock will also be at West Coast Night on August 31, where people of the West Coast will share ancestral stories through song and dance.
When: September 1 to 30
