If you’re looking for a bit of beer travel in the coming year, a trip to Victoria, British Columbia is one we can highly recommend. After attending the 2019 Great Canadian Beer Festival in early September, the capital city of British Columbia has a pretty nice beer scene going on. And when you include the exchange rate, a beercation to Canada is quite favorable for the American dollar.

The 7th Annual Victoria Beer Week returns to Victoria from March 6-14, 2020. The 2020 edition of this annual beer week celebrates Victoria’s craft beer culture that includes a mix of 14 events over 9 days. Many events from years past will return as new events will join the mix. Victoria Beer Week opens with ​Lift Off!​ on Friday, March 6th and closes with Saturday Night Casks​ on March 14th, both at the Victoria Public Market.

New events include ​Publican’s Picks: A Beer Paired Dinner with Paul Hadfield​ at Spinnakers Brewpub, ​Street Eats Brewery Tour​ with West Coast Brewery Tours, and ​Lager Than Life​, a special event celebrating the wide world of lagers.
