Victoria Beer Week is Underway

Victoria Beer Week

Victoria Beer WeekThe week features a wide variety of events that pair BC craft beer with local Victoria food vendors, with a clear focus on showcasing quality BC craft beer and educating beer enthusiasts. Smaller tastings, seminars and micro-events happen at various venues throughout the week.

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.

Our team consists of a few beer-fanatic characters, each infamous in their own way for their passion and dedication to Victoria’s craft beer scene. Bringing the same discerning eye to our programming calendar as they do to a fresh pint of beer, the board of the Victoria Beer Week Society works year round to plan and ensure that Victoria Beer Week is providing Victoria’s craft beer community with engaging, adventurous events that look to educate beer enthusiasts as well as introduce them to new and exciting beers.

The 2nd Annual Christmas Craft Beer Show set for Dec. 1 & 2

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.

After a resounding success in its first year the Christmas Craft Beer Show is back for another round! The 2nd Annual Christmas Craft Beer Show will take place at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre on December 1 & 2, 2017.

Get ready to wet your whistle as you will have a chance to partake in some of the finest winter ales brought to you by microbreweries from across British Columbia and Western Canada. Last year there were over 40 vendors on site. Some serious food was being offered with a special menu only available at the Christmas Craft Beer Show.

Grab your buddies and throw on an ugly Christmas Sweater and make your way down to the best Christmas Craft Beer Show going! Confirmed for this year already are Bomber Brewing, Cannery Brewing, Category 12, Driftwood Brewing, Lighthouse, Persephone Brewing, Phillips, Russell Brewing, Saltspring Island Ales, Stanley Park Brewing and TWA Dogs Brewery. Read about last year’s event.

Most 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 seemed short sighted, and hence the Christmas Craft Beer Show was born.

So come one and come all and raise a pint of holiday cheer and join us for the 2nd Annual Christmas Craft Beer Show at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. There is no better way to kick off the holiday season!
