The Yukon Beer Festival Society was started in 2013 by (you guessed it) a bunch of northern-living beer lovers. Sure, we loved going outside of the territory to beer festivals, but we felt like there was a good time to be had in throwing our own hoppy shindig. So, we decided to do just that!
The first annual event, in 2013, was a hit with Yukoners and visitors alike. Each year the festival has grown to include more tastes, more representatives from breweries and distributors across North America, and more patrons enjoying BEER! The society chooses a local charity for each festival and we donate profits from the event to benefit their cause.
