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 2020 will feature more than 50 BC craft breweries at venues throughout the city. Whether you’re an aspiring Cicerone, or simply want to celebrate the province’s bounty of craft beer, Victoria Beer Week has an experience brewing just for you.
Victoria Beer Week is presented by the Victoria Beer Society, a non-profit organization whose mission is to facilitate various beer-related events at locations around Greater Victoria. With a focus on quality over quantity, the Victoria Beer Society is a membership-driven community of like-minded individuals who share a common passion for BC craft beer. We believe the consumer wants not only choice, but also the opportunity to learn about what they consume.
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 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.
BC Craft Brewer's Guild
At 2017’s event, we were excited to pair up with the BC Craft Brewer’s Guild to not only showcase some quality BC breweries, but also generate some revenue for the Guild, which is working to build bridges between the provincial government and BC craft breweries.
