Food and wine festivals allow people to diversify their palates in one day, a feat previously attainable only by cramming five frozen dinners and a variety pack of juice boxes into a blender. Savour expanding horizons with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get one admission to Hopscotch Festival Kelowna, a premium scotch, whisky, and beer festival on September 24 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the Kelowna Curling Club (up to a $25 value). Admission includes:

  • One souvenir tasting cup
  • Five tasting tokens
  • A program

Growing larger every year, the Hopscotch festival draws crowds to taste a massive array of fine local and international scotch, whisky, liquor, and craft brews, tempered with bites of pairing-worthy local fare. After arming themselves with a souvenir tasting cup, safari-grade binoculars, and a map of the cavernous tasting hall, tipplers navigate through 40 booths of curated Canadian and international spirits, wines, and beers. Last year's fest drew 3,200 carousers to sample wines and scotches, and this year's fete introduces vodka, tequila, rum, and gin to the party, such as Spirit Bear espresso vodka and locally grown Okanagan gin. Classic sips include a quintet of Barefoot wines and a 15- to 25-year-old slug of Century Reserve poured by a man who appears to be stuck in black and white. As live jazz fills the hall, sip single-malt whiskies from Amrut and Macallan while knowledgeable servers illuminate whisky's complex flavour notes and recurring dreams. Most tastes cost one token, with curated fare and premium scotch selling for a little more. Groupon holders may purchase additional tokens for more extensive samplings ($1 each).

Hopscotch Festival Kelowna

The crown jewel of Hopscotch Festival Kelowna is the tasting hall, where guests assemble to sip, sample, and learn about a massive variety of premium beverages. In its eighth year in Kelowna, the festival will showcase an expanding list of more than 150 libations, which patrons can convert from a jingling fanny pack full of tasting tokens to sips poured into their souvenir tasting glasses. Domestic and international beers quench thirst in a variety of styles, complementing an eclectic mix of whiskeys, rums, and tequilas.
