Beer School

Sunday, March 5, 2017 - 11:00am to 4:00pm

The only school where drinking beer is not only allowed, it’s part of the class! Come get learned about your favourite beverage! 

Class #1: Chris Lukie & Danny Seeton – “Let’s Get Brewing”
11:00am to 1:00pm

In this class, you’ll get an introduction to the brewing process, including a talk from Danny Seeton (National Rank BJCP judge and Vancouver Island Brewery’s Production Manager and R&D Brewer) and a visit to the brewhouse itself with a hands-on demonstration by Swans’ Head Brewer, Chris Lukie. It’s a rare chance to see the inner workings of a heritage Victoria brewery and learn a thing or two about how beer is actually made. Participants will get to taste the beer that they help brew.

Class # 2: Greg Evans – “The Short Thirst and the Long Thirst – A Brief History of Prohibition in BC and the USA”
2:00pm to 4:00pm

Victoria’s own local beer historian, the ever entertaining Greg Evans, returns to tell you all about BC’s part in Prohibition, both our own short version (1917-1921) and the better known “Long Thirst” south of the border (1920-1933).

Cost to Attend: 
$20 ticket per class or $30 for the Complete Course
