Beer, Cheese, More Beer

Beer, Cheese, More Beer

Date: 
Wednesday, March 8, 2017 - 7:30pm to 10:30pm

This has been one of Victoria Beer Week's most popular events from the start. After outgrowing its original venue, the signature beer-and-cheese event moved to the Victoria Public Market last year–and promptly sold it out!

If you were there, you’ll remember just how good the selection of beers and cheeses was; if you weren’t there, don’t miss out on one of the hottest tickets in town. Simply put, beer and cheese is a match made in gastro-heaven.

Three people are trapped in a room. Each is filled with regret and a deep desire to connect, but held back by their (sometimes literal) inability to see each other. As the room becomes more crowded, desires become more urgent. Slowly, reality unravels and raw emotion takes hold.
