In the run up to the 2015 Canada Winter Games, a $2,000 Pacific Western Brewing (PWB) Community Foundation Hometown Heroes bursary has been awarded to Kamloops track & field hammer thrower Adam Keenan.

Ceremonies at The Habitat in Kelowna marked Round Three of four rounds of bursary awards ahead of the start of the Games in Prince George in February.

Keenan said: “I feel that I can be a positive and inspiring choice as a Hometown Hero because I strive to be a strong role model who promotes physical activity through my love of sport. Thank you for selecting me to receive this important bursary. It is really difficult to fund myself through this path that I have chosen, and being awarded funding will help me towards my goal of making the Canadian Olympic Team in 2016.”

PWB’s special guest at the event was Shane Beatty, head coach of The Okanagan Sun Football Team. “The Pacific Western Brewing Hometown Heroes Program is designed to support the goals of the 2015 Canada Winter Games,” Coach Beatty said. “These goals are all about sportsmanship, leadership and citizenship. Today is also about recognizing an outstanding athlete who believes in going for gold and puts down his very best every day.”

Kazuko Komatsu, owner and CEO of PWB, said: “Adam will be one of 16 young athletes and other community heroes whose extraordinary endeavours inspire us all.”

PWB is continuing to accept applications to the end of January 2015 for the final round of selections. In each round a Hometown Hero has been selected from BC’s four major regions – the Northern and Southern Interior, Greater Vancouver and Vancouver Island.

In the first round in May the winners included: Quesnel Paralympics hopeful Landon McGauley, Kelowna speed skater Nick Goplen, Port Alberni educator and coach Tom McEvay and North Vancouver javelin-throwing track star Andy White. In July, second round winners included: Revelstoke Freeskiier Adam McCraw, Smithers gymnastics coach Alana Jensen, UBC women’s hockey player Danielle Dube and Victoria Special Olympics figure skater Emily Walzak.

Candidates who were not picked in the first three rounds will continue to be valid contenders in the final round. Application to the Hometown Heroes program is open to any BC resident currently engaged in sports as an athlete or coach, or otherwise excelling in a community mentoring activity. Applicants must be at least 19 years old.

Application forms are available online at www.pwbrewing.com. Email the application to: mail@pwbrewing.com or mail to: Hometown Heroes Bursaries, PWB Community Foundation, 3876 Norland Avenue, Burnaby, BC V5G 4T9.

Fall has almost arrived and we are so excited to share with you some of our colourful plans for the future.  We are happy to announce the remolding of our upstairs into a brand new hang out spot that will be opening soon!

We, do however,  have the rest of your summer night planned with some amazing events and talent coming our way. I can't let the cat out of the bag for everything, but here is a quick sneak peak at what our fall schedule looks like:

If you need to book tickets for a show call us at 250-763-9674 and leave us a message with your name and how many tickets you want.

We also have some opportunities for local artists, DJ's or musicians who want to get involved with our events. You can send us a bio about yourself and a video clip showing off your stuff to rsvp@thehabitat.ca


Tuesday June 17th's event will feature a performance by our favorite local heart throbs Van Damsel, and then showcase brand new, hot off the press videos by Van Damsel, Icelandia, Andrew Judah, Nuuka, Young Sparrows, Paperboy, Stage, and Matt Brevner. So much excitement packed into one night, I can’t even handle it.

We will also be getting a super special visit from one of the most talented, stylish, and handsome Kelowna-ite we know, Brandon Fletcher of Faked Potatoes. Since he ventured from Kelowna to pursue his passion as videographer extraordinaire in Vancouver, Brandon has been killing it in the film world and is snagging some amazing opportunities. For example, the new video he produced for Sebell’s “Till The Sun Burns Out” was featured on the Nylon Magazine website. Yes you read that right, NYLON! Tuesday will be the grand unveiling of Brandon’s newest video with Van Damsel for their song “Begins With A Return”. The guys road-tripped down to California to shoot the video, and considering how stoked and insanely jealous I was of their Instagram teaser pictures, I can’t even imagine how mind-blowing the final product will be!

Swing by Tuesday night to support all the local talent! Doors open at 7pm and because Public Records is the best, the show is free for our viewing pleasure!

Also, to get a taste of what you’ll be seeing on Tuesday, check out the video for Sebell’s “Till The Sun Burns Out” by Brandon Fletcher, and check out his website Faked Potatoes.

April 4th, 2014- The Wild & Shreddy Kreuger


Former bandmates of the successful independent act, Bucknife, Dylan Villain (guitar/vocals), Lucas ‘Boozus’ Jancikic (bass/vocals) and Rowdy Rick Riegs (drums) amalgamated to create a sound that is properly described as “the bastard son of AC/DC and ZZ Top”.

April 16th, 2014 - Ninja Spy

Ninjaspy is known for their energetic, crazy, and entertaining live shows. In a live review, CordMag said "[n]ot a speck of the stage was left untouched by this band’s chaotic feet." CordMag also said "...while I listened to and got somewhat scared by the samples I’d heard that afternoon," "Ninjaspy is really not my type of music... but they bloody well are entertaining."

Tickets will be available at Leo's Video (2680 Pandosy St) & Mosaic Books (411 Bernard Avenue)
Last Wednesday we were super lucky to have The Elwins live! Not only that, but all of our very talented Open Mic performers got to open for them! Did you make it down?
If the next time you are going through our awesome list of events and you come across a band you have never heard, take a few minutes and follow a link. They could become your new obsession. It's never too late to become a fan.  Come out and support them live, buy a shirt or an album and probably even meet them. You know if they are playing here they are amazing.
Check out Hollerado's live Video  who are currently making their way across the country on their So It Goes Tour. See them here on November 13th with The Zolas!
