Press Release Source: Victoria Beer Week

Victoria Beer Week march 7-15, 2014 After a very successful launch that saw over 3,000 people attend 14 events held in venues throughout Greater Victoria from March 1-9, 2014, Victoria Beer Week will return in 2015 with even more events celebrating craft beer in our city.

Victoria Beer Week will run March 7-15, 2015, once again beginning with an Opening Cask Night at the Victoria Public Market on Saturday, March 7, that will feature up to 20 casks from Vancouver Island breweries and (new this year) local cideries. A new addition to the schedule is the Closing Cask Night at the Victoria Public Market one week later on Saturday, March 14, which will feature up to 25 casks from craft breweries from the rest of the province, including many new breweries that were not even open last March.

Another exciting new event added this year is the Craft Beer Thunderdome to be held at Wheelies Motorcycles on Rock Bay Avenue on Wednesday, March 11, 2015. This outdoor, tented and heated event will feature up to 10 brand new, previously unreleased beers from BC breweries.

#VBW2015 will finish once again with the Brewmaster’s Brunch held at an ultra-long table at the Atrium on Sunday, March 15. This collaboration with the Island Chefs Collaborative will feature up to six courses of brunch paired with some of B.C.’s finest craft beer. Tickets for those four events went on sale on Monday, December 1 on EventBrite. Full details and links can be found at
