  • If you have received your COVID-19 vaccination(s) outside of British Columbia, please contact us at to coordinate your proof of vaccination.
  • Keep in mind that if you plan to show both your event ticket and vaccine record on your mobile device, you will need to have both downloaded and ready to go in separate windows for quick viewing.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this new system. 

What is your Communicable Disease Plan (formerly COVID-19 Safety Plan)?

  • We will be developing our plan in accordance with the most up-to-date guidelines laid out by the local and provincial health authorities and Worksafe BC. 

Will I need to bring a mask with me?

  • As per the current Guidelines set by the BC Provincial Health Office (BC PHO), masks are required  for indoor public settings. Please bring a mask to the event; masks are required to use the washroom facilities as they are located indoors. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Why is the event smaller this year?

  • Health and safety is our number one priority. We want to ensure a fun and safe environment for all of our stakeholders as we make our return to live events.

Why are tickets priced the way they are?

  • Tickets are priced in a manner that reflects the quality of food, beverage, entertainment and service you can expect at Brewery & The Beast. Our tickets are priced to ensure the event is sustainable to produce year after year, and we have increased our ticket prices to match the growing expense of producing Brewery & The Beast under the current conditions. Many factors and considerations dictate ticket prices, such as: infrastructure, labour & equitable wages, rental equipment, health and safety, number of attendees, inflation, event improvements and enhancements, new activations and attractions, etc. This year’s price is indicative of all of these factors, and ultimately, the elevated food, beverage and live entertainment you will receive.

Are tickets refundable?

  • Tickets are non-refundable.
  • In the event of a COVID-19 related postponement, tickets for our Victoria event will be honoured for our ‘make up date’ to be held on June 12, 2022.
  • In the event of a COVID-19 related postponement, tickets for our Vancouver event will be honoured for our ‘make up date’ to be held on June 26, 2022.
  • If you are unable to attend the event for any reason, your ticket can be transferred to another person through our ticketing platform. This service is available leading up to, and on the day of the event. Further information on transferring tickets is available here.
