First-ever Langford Beer Festival kicks off at Starlight Stadium
Greater Victoria beer lovers will gather at a stadium on the West Shore.
The first-ever Langford Beer Festival is currently underway until 4 p.m. at Starlight Stadium.
The event, which is organized by the Victoria Beer Society, features a curated lineup of more than 80 craft beers and ciders from 40 different vendors and breweries. There are also lawn games, ice cream, food trucks and live music.
Ryan Malcolm, the Victoria Beer Society’s executive director, said plans for the beer festival first began in 2019 but the coronavirus pandemic caused them to delay the festival. He said with the festival finally taking place, it feels like a return to some kind of new normal.
“It really does feel like a return to normalcy a little bit and we’re seeing the level of excitement, it’s almost overwhelming how positive and great the energy feels,” he said.
The Langford Beer Festival ends at 8 p.m. For more information and a full list of participating breweries, click here.
