In years past, The Strath has held a yearly celebration showing off different island breweries because there are so many! But this year, they’ve taken it to the next level: Island Craft Festival Fall 2022 Edition showcases more than just beer this year. They are including cider and spirits to the list, too! With 20 different breweries, cideries, and distilleries being featured, there is sure to be something for everyone.
There will be classic vendors that everyone knows and loves, like Phillips, located in downtown Victoria, and Merridale Cidery, located in Cobble Hill. Alongside the classics will be new players in the field like Small Gods, located in Sidney, and Victoria Cider Co, located near Brentwood Bay. All of the vendors are bringing something delicious and fall-inspired, so there is such an exciting lineup! From a Sweet Potato Harvest Ale, to a Blackberry Dessert Wine, to a Coffee Cider, it will be so hard deciding where to start!
This beer, cider, and spirit festival will be held on October 9, just in time to relax and try something new before spending time with friends and family! Advanced entry to the festival starts at 1pm and standard entry is at 2pm.

All of the information is there, with ticket prices and general information, as well as a list of the craft vendors that will be there.
