Photos: ‘Epic’ Beer Olympics was suds and fun in Oliver

Beer Olympics were part of the Cask and Keg event on Saturday

The 2nd annual Beer Olympics was another epic event to add to Wine Country Weekend which included Cask and Keg and Festival of the Grape at Oliver Community Park.

The costumes and fun team efforts made the Olympics an exciting spectacle. There was even a minute long beer fountain at the finish line.

Beer Olympics included sack races, tray of beer run, barrel roll and more.

Team “Ass Clowns” won the day and scored the Cask & Keg beer fridge prize, sponsored by Firehall Brewery and Gambrinus Malting.

On Sunday, thousands came out for the Festival of the Grape and to watch the iconic grape stomping competition also held at Oliver Community Park.
