Lager Than Life will include a wide range of styles from dark and malty to crisp and hoppy with everything in between.

Cascadia Liquor & the Victoria Beer Society present:

Lagers have long been the outcast of the craft beer family, often overshadowed by their boastful IPA cousins at craft beer events. But we think Lagers have earned their place at the craft beer family table. With their diverse range of flavours and styles being every bit as worthy as that of their ale brethren, we think that it’s time for Lagers to take centre stage.

To perfectly pair with these crisp brews, the vendors at the Victoria Public Market will be providing some delicious food options and special guest Dumpling Drop will be taking up residence in the VPM Community Kitchen, serving up fresh handmade dumplings.

Lager Than Life is generously sponsored by the Victoria Public Market.
