June 27: CAMRA Victoria – Bring a New Member Event

Swans, Victoria BC; 19:00–21:00

CAMRA – Victoria’s Annual “Bring a New Member Night” will be held in the Penthouse at Swan’s Brewpub.

Appetizers will be served, but we are recommending that everyone plan to have a meal either before or afterwards as the appetizers usually go very quickly.

Swan’s is having a couple happy hours sandwiched around the event, with the first running from 3-6pm featuring $4.95 items with the purchase of a drink, and the other from 9-11pm featuring $8 burgers with purchase of a drink.

We are also asking that members contribute a small donation towards the beer served to help offset the cost to purchase it, as this is usually one of our most expensive events to run.

Also, we are asking all members to please bring your membership cards with you. If you are a new or renewed member and haven’t received your card by the time of the event, please see our membership director Cayla there as she may have it with her.

And as always, please plan for a safe ride to and from the event.

Cheers, and we hope to see you there!
