This year’s festival will feature a diverse range of more than 60 craft breweries from British Columbia along with local cideries and food trucks. The BC Ale Trail-er will also be on-site serving a selection of beers from breweries that are unable to make the trip to Victoria. Expect an expanded array of breweries from across Canada to be announced in late June.Discounted Early Bird Tickets for Victoria Beer Society members will go on sale Tuesday, June 18.
