February 8: Lagunitas – Lil Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale Cask Night
The New Oxford, Vancouver, BC (map); 17:30-20:00 PST
Bonus Beer for Aletown! Lagunitas from California are climbing north with a keg of their “Lil’ Sumpin’ Sumpin ale.
Way smooth and silky with a nice wheatly-esque-ishness. A truly unique style featuring a strong hop finish on a silky body. A hoppy pale wheat ale that is great for IPA fans but so smooth that the hefeweizen fans dig it too.
ABV 7.5% | IBU 65
Lets make a night of it! These guys aren’t in town for long!

February 12: CAMRA Victoria Sponsored Brewery Tour
Various locations; All-day event; $30
Meet at 9:30 am
Van will be leaving at 10 am Sharp
Meet at Swans Brewpub
This will be an all day event.
We will be touring outside of the Capital Region (going up Island), with multiple stops.
$30 pays for just your transportation up island to two breweries, a pub with lots of taps and decent food for lunch, and a brewpub. This means you can fully enjoy yourself, as in responsible drinking! We are still negotiating with one brewery to avoid their $6 tour charge, so be prepared to pay if we are not successful. Please bring your growlers so you can taste some of those hard to get beers at home, plus money for your food and beers at lunch and other stops.
The tour includes:
A tasting or two and transportaion
It does not include the cost for:
- Growler Fills or Take home Purchases
- Tasting Fee at one of the location (payable upon visiting – $6.00)
Seats are limited. Reserve your spots soon.
