Why brew a Festival Ale?
This festival ale is brewed in celebration of the amazing art, music and culture here on Vancouver Island. We're proud to support local cultural events that strengthen our island's unique collection of bouncing souls and kindred spirits. These events are a part of our community and highlight the vibrant lifestyle we all enjoy here on Vancouver Island. So we brewed a beer with a rhythmic blend of malts and lightly riffed hops. A beer that is sessionable, thirst quenching and a sensory expanding experience. Turn it up and enjoy.

The Events: 

The festival location, St Ann's Academy, will provide a stunning, unique and true Island experience for both festival attendees and the participating artists and vendors. The weekend will be filled with culture, entertainment and samplings of select Breweries and Wineries from Vancouver Island. As the sun goes down, a full service beverage garden will open and the main stage will explode with the absolute best live music the Island has to offer. The 3rd annual V.I.C. Fest promises to be an amazing celebration of everything awesome from right here on Vancouver Island!
