Victoria Beer Week is a nine-day festival showcasing BC craft breweries in unique event settings. With a focus on education and diverse craft beer selection, VBW 2019 will feature more than 40 BC craft breweries at venues throughout the city.
The Victoria Beer Week Society is a non-profit organization whose mission is to facilitate various beer-related events at locations around Greater Victoria. We aim to educate and build “beer ambassadors” out of craft beer newcomers and seasoned beer geeks alike, as well as to increase business for all facets of the BC craft beer industry, including breweries, pubs, liquor stores, restaurants and home brew supply stores.
