Live at Lunch: Craft Brewing in BC

March 20 @ 12:00 pm1:00 pm

Free lunchtime talk in the Conference Hall. Open to the public.
BC’s independent craft brewing industry may have started in 1982 with John Mitchell’s Horseshoe Bay Brewing in West Vancouver, but the origins of craft brewing extend all the way back to 1858 in Victoria. Come hear stories about the late 19th and early 20th century brewers of both Vancouver and Victoria, who began an industry that would help shape BC’s cultural identity and economy.
For this Live at Lunch, Noelle Phillips will share some tales from these forgotten pre-corporate foundations of BC craft brewing.
