PROS & JOES FUNSPIEL + BATTLE OF THE BREWERIES

March 22 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Team Rate

COURTENAY, BC, March 1, 2023 – The Comox Valley Curling Centre is thrilled to announce the 4th annual Battle of The Breweries Keg Curling Fundraiser, this year in benefit of Cat Advocates Teaching and Saving Society. The CVCC made history as being the first ever (and still only) curling tournament featuring beer kegs actually curled on the ice! For this year’s tournament the participating eight craft breweries are Ace Brewing, Beach Fire, Cumberland Brewing, Gladstone, Hoyne, Land & Sea, Mount Arrowsmith, & Rad Brewing. These crafty brewers will be battling it out in this special spectator friendly and fan participation event on Saturday March 23 at 7:30. The winner to receive bragging rights for the year, a $500 advertising prize from Jet FM, and the cherished opportunity to sip from the grand prize trophy the Kegoblet.

In addition to the fierce on ice competition between the breweries, anyone in attendance at the club will be welcome to try shooting a beer keg themselves (for a small $5.00 donation) at the intermission and win prizes for getting their keg closest to the button (center of the curling rings). All proceeds from this event will go to Cat Advocates Teaching and Saving Society and their efforts in the rescuing, caring of, and finding safe new homes for cats in need.
