If you want to taste the most exclusive and rarest of beers, it’s all about the wood.

Beer geek alert!

This is definitely the most specialized event on our schedule. Taste the difference that wood-aging makes in a wide range of beer styles, including sours, Brett-conditioned beers, barley wines, imperial stouts and others. The Victoria Public Market’s food vendors will be serving up their own masterpieces to go along with these special beers.

Many of these special beers will also be available to purchase and take home after the event at an on-site pop-up liquor store provided by Spinnakers Spirit Merchants.

All About the Wood is generously sponsored by the Victoria Public Market.
