Beer lovers, rejoice!

Fresh to Death, presented by Victoria Beert Society, is returning to the city Sunday, October 16th at the Esquimalt Gorge Pavillion.

For most, the fall represents a darker time of the year as we leave summer behind and enter the colder season of staying in and binge-watching the return of our favorite TV shows.

However, fall is treated as an early Christmas for craft beer fans as local breweries gear up their hoppiest seasonal drinks for release.

The Victoria Beer Society will be celebrating the return of the annual hop harvest and BC Craft Beer Month with an afternoon featuring over 20 fresh hop beers from craft breweries all around BC, including Victoria.

To pair with these fresh hops fermentations, the Rock Bay Market’s Bird & Basket food truck will be providing some delicious food options for purchase.

The event will feature more than 20 fresh hop beers from BC craft breweries, along with some pumpkin beers and Oktoberfest-style lagers, all celebrating the harvest season.

Guests will be provided a sampler glass along with a guided (for VIP ticket holders) or unguided tour so you can earn as you taste the newly harvested beers from all over the province.

Whether you already love hoppy beer or would like to try for the first time, this is one event beer-lovers of all kinds will not want to miss

Ticket prices start at $35 for general admission and $60 for VIP.

Cheers to harvest season!
