Whether you stop by A-Frame Brewing as a pre-party or if you'd like the kick off 2019 with an early night's sleep you are in for a full-blown celebration complete with shots of Screech rum at 12 am Newfoundland standard time (AKA 7:30 pm on the west coast).

2. Backcountry Brewing's Sing in The New Year

Craft beer, karaoke and bubbles? Yes! Spend December 31st singing in the New Year at Backcountry Brewing where a couple hundred of the Sea to Sky's most sonorous singers will be belting out all your favourite 90's and early 2000's karaoke tracks.
