Spinnakers Cask Festival 2

Spinnakers Cask Festival 2

Spinnakers is hosting its second cask festival on November 21, building on the success of its inaugural event on March 14 and the growing profile Real Ale is getting in Victoria. This is also a great opportunity to meet brewers from both the Island and the Lower Mainland, many of whom previously brewed at Spinnakers.

What’s the big deal about meeting a brewer? It’s like knowing a farmer, butcher, baker, or cheesemaker — you have a direct relationship with where your food and drink comes from that helps you to know what you are consuming. You also have a better opportunity to understand the process from source to table and even, perhaps, influence what the producer makes.

Here is the lineup:

  • Central City ESB
  • Dead Frog Oaked Winter Warmer
  • Deschutes Jubelale
  • Dix Barley Wine
  • Driftwood Porter
  • Driftwood #2 TBA
  • Granville Island TBA
  • Lighthouse Winter Ale
  • Longwood Brewpub Imperial Stout
  • Mission Springs Winter Pumpkin Ale
  • R&B Bourbon Oak-meal Stout
  • Spinnakers Gingerbread Ale
  • Spinnakers Mt. Tolmie Dark Ale with Highland Park 18
  • Storm TBA
  • Swans TBA
  • Vancouver Island “Caskannator”
  • Whistler Brewhouse Woodwards IPA

Spinnakers is dedicated to sourcing local ingredients, therefore, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Slow Food and Real Ale than spending an afternoon at the gastropub on Lime Bay.

Time: Saturday, November 21 @ noon – 5:00pm
Place: Spinnakers, 308 Catherine Street, Victoria
Cost: $40 (includes 3 samples, souvenir glass, appetizers)
Tickets: at Spinnakers, both Spirit Merchants locations in Victoria, and CAMRA Vancouver’s Web site
