What is to my understanding the first ever Beer Week to be held in Canada, Vancouver Craft Beer Week, is fast approaching. For all you westerners, or beer aficionados within a quick drive or flight of the lower mainland, everything gets started May 10 and lasts for one week, until the 16th. Details are available here.
Of course, when BC accomplishes something, you can bet that the heartland won’t be far behind, and so we also have fast approaching Ontario Craft Beer Week. It kicks off June 20, and while details are sketchy, what info there is thus far may be found here.
Of course, like San Francisco in the States, Montreal has had a sort of unofficial Beer Week happening around the Mondial de la Bière for years now. This year’s edition begins June 2.
