Day 2 of Victoria Beer Week

So everyone is primed after day one, and ready for more, and Saturday has a few more tricks up its sleeve. With everything from honouring a legend to big woody barrel-aged beers, day two has always been when the marathon efforts kick in.

Day one was a toe-dip in the water compared to day two’s beer list, and if you look below, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. Ile Sauvage is bringing nine (yes, nine) beers for All About the Wood, Driftwood is launching their new Wheat Wine, and the list goes on and on…

So don’t delay, as there are somehow a few tickets left for tonight’s event.
