Christmas Craft Beer Show returns

Christmas Craft Beer Show

The best part about beer is that it can be enjoyed at any time of the year. It should be celebrated in the same manner.

Christmas Craft Beer ShowMost beer festivals are held throughout the summer months to take advantage of the beautiful relationship between warm weather and cold glass of suds. There are few things that go together so well, but having to wait through fall, winter and spring to get together again and see what is occurring in the industry by celebrating the delectable flavours seems very short sighted.

To bridge the gap, we have decided to have everyone raise a mug of holiday cheer and join us for our 3rd annual Christmas Craft Beer Show at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

In our estimation, this is a great concept that will allow the multitude of fantastic local micro-breweries to gather together to display their seasonal products as well as their brewery favorites to both beer lovers and food and beverage professionals ahead of the holiday season. This is an out of the box event for the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, but one we believe is needed in Victoria and will allow for all involved to garner exposure ahead of the most significant holiday season of the year and a chance for us all to enjoy a happy and prosperous New Year!

Tickets: $40.00 for a one-day pass, $70.00 for a two-day pass.

Live Music: SuperSauce are playing for the second time at the Christmas Craft Beer Show. Their recipe? A litre of rock, a tablespoon of roll and a heaping helping of good times. Check them out on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.

Greater Victoria Harbour Authority and Deanna Young Promotions
presents The Breakwater Barge. Join us Friday August 4th from 5PM to 9:30PM for Caleb Hart & The Royal Youths. Caleb will be performing double duty as he opens the barge with a solo set then plays 2 full sets with The Royal Youths!

“When you can switch between singing reggae to soulful R&B to sounding just like Shaggy seemlessly, you’re going to blow some minds. Just watch his cover of Shaggy and Rayvon’s ‘Angel’. It’s no wonder his set with the Royal Youth’s at Sugar Nightclub won them a performance spot at Rifflandia. Hart also capped off his year winning a Western Canadian Music Award with his other band Tasman Jude.
