Christmas comes early for beer lovers

After a resounding success in its first year the Christmas Craft Beer Show is back serving up another round of local beers on December 1 and 2 at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

Last year, more than 40 vendors were on site as well as local food vendors offering special menus.

Confirmed for this year are Bomber Brewing, Cannery Brewing, Category 12, Driftwood Brewing, Lighthouse, Persephone Brewing, Phillips, Russell Brewing, Salt Spring Island Ales, Stanley Park Brewing and TWA Dogs Brewery, are among some of the featured breweries you can try out.

While most beer festivals are held throughout the summer months to take advantage of the warm weather and cold glass of suds, having to wait through fall, winter and spring seemed short sighted to organizers.

Tickets cost $40.00 for a one-day pass, $70.00 for a two-day pass.

Tickets include a souvenir cup and lanyard, program, and a couple tokens to get you started.

SuperSauce are playing for the second time at the Christmas Craft Beer Show. Their recipe? “A litre of rock, a tablespoon of roll and a heaping helping of good times.”
