Great Canadian Beer Festival: Plan Your Weekend Getaway

Looking to plan a weekend vacation? Why not make Victoria, BC your destination this September 6th & 7th with Canada’s oldest beer festival – the Great Canadian Beer Festival!

Victoria, BC is the cradle of the “craft beer revolution,” home to Canada’s first brewpub and some of British Columbia’s most popular breweries. Visionary trailblazers nurtured craft beer here alongside the local food movement, and today BC’s capital city is home to some of the country’s best restaurants, breweries and beer festivals!

Sip, savour, experience and explore everything Victoria has to offer this September at Great Canadian Beer Festival!
