A good beer makes nearly any situation better, and shopping is no exception. Head down to ‘Beer & Bling’ in New Westminster on December 9 and 10 to pick up great unique gifts as well as enjoying a few glasses of local brew from Steel & Oak.
The event is being put on by Workingsilver, a store and studio for artisan silversmithing. This is a great chance to pick up some local, handmade items to give to friends and loved ones for Christmas. Just to sweeten the deal, there is also free gift wrapping available.
Workingsilver also puts on classes for anyone interested in learning silversmithing and making their own jewellery. That’s another great gift idea or treat for yourself.
To make the shopping experience even more enjoyable, hometown heroes Steel & Oak will be on hand with some of their delicious beers. Mull over your options while supping a glass of their Royal City Ale, Dark Lager or Smoked Hefeweizen.
You might as well have a second (or third) drink, too, as part of the proceeds thereof will be going to support the Arts Council of New Westminster. That’s right, by drinking beer, you’ll be supporting arts and culture in New West.
There is free parking behind the building, and you can find all the details on Workingsilver’s website – as well full information about the classes they offer.
