This has been one of Victoria Beer Week's most popular events from the start. After outgrowing its original venue, the signature beer-and-cheese event moved to the Victoria Public Market last year–and promptly sold it out!

If you were there, you’ll remember just how good the selection of beers and cheeses was; if you weren’t there, don’t miss out on one of the hottest tickets in town. Simply put, beer and cheese is a match made in gastro-heaven.
