Weekends are great and all, but we are sure looking forward to this week 🥳

The Local Sketch is Tuesday, April 30 at Moody Ales from 6:30 to 9:30! Join us in a night of creativity as we listen to thought leaders in Port Moody, drink beer, and design Moody Ales’ next growler!

About the Event

The night starts with a series of speakers who will share their unique perspectives on why Port Moody is so special. Redstamp, a local design and marketing agency, will then lead the design brainstorm breakout.

How does it work?

At the Local Sketch…

  • You register at the door at 6:30 pm to secure your spot at a design table.

  • We will hear from thought leaders in Port Moody to get inspired and learn from their perspectives about what makes Port Moody so unique.

  • We will then break into groups, working with local designers from Redstamp, to brainstorm and sketch potential illustrations for the growler.

After the event...

  • Redstamp will finalize the designs and submit them for a community wide social media contest!

  • You will have your chance to vote on your favourite design via social media, so follow @PortMoodyandCo on Instagram (and Facebook) to join the fun!

  • Finally, the winning design will be launched as Moody Ales Community Growler this summer!

Bring your perspectives and stories to help us create the first community-made Port Moody beer growler!
