The Gunbarrel Saloon at Apex Mountain Resort is the venue for the second annual Apex Brewski even on Feb. 14.

The celebration of craft beer, cider and spirits is a great fit with the Apex aprés ski vibe.

“Last season, locals and visitors alike told us that our first annual Brewski event was one of the best events ever held at Apex. Because the event sold out well in advance last year, we have expanded the event this year to give more people the chance to experience this unique festival of flavour,” said Emily Childs, Apex events manager.

The expanded event will be held throughout the Gunbarrel Saloon and restaurant, featuring 18 craft breweries, cideries and distilleries.

Appetizers will be served and live entertainment will come from the band Towers and Trees.

Brewski runs from 6 to 9 p.m. with the special after party from 9 p.m. to midnight. Tickets are $35 and available online at www.eventbrite.ca. Included in the ticket price are eight beverage tokens, hot and cold appetizers and entry to the after party. Shuttle options from Penticton are available via The Coconut Express and must be booked in advance by visiting www.TheCoconutExpress.com.

Accommodation specials are available with Apex Mountain Inn and Apex Accommodations. Contact 1-800-387-2739 or 1-866-273-9737 and quote Apex Brewski at the time of booking to receive the discount, new bookings only. As an added bonus, receive 25 per cent off an adult ski day pass on Feb. 14, 15 or 16 with your Brewski event ticket.
