Hello CAMRA Members and Craft Beer Enthusiasts,
HOPOxia is coming up on June 9th, and Phillips is on the lookout for volunteers to help with the running of the event.
We’re looking for at 6-8 volunteer for various duties around the event in two shifts. Serving it Right is not required
Phillips has stated that you can work a 2.5hr shift in exchange of enjoying 2 hours of the festival along with 5 complimentary drink tickets. All in all a pretty fair deal!
If you’re interested please email ( and we will pass along your info to the fine folks at Phillips!
We’re also looking for at least 1 more volunteer to help out at the CAMRA Victoria booth as well. We will be selling our Pretzel Necklaces at HOPOxia this year.
So please email if you are interested. CAMRA Member Only Event Identifying Off Beers Tasting and Tour of Vancouver Island Brewery May 31, 2018 – 6:60 pm
Come join us Thursday May 31st at Vancouver Island Brewery for our next monthly event. VIB’s Danny Seeton will take us on a guided tour of some common beer flaws with tasters of ‘off flavours’, so one can better understand why one is not enjoying their beer.
He will also explain how various flavours interact with beer, and how some brewers can deliberately take advantage of a ‘flaw’ to create a tasty beer.
The time of the event is 6:30pm, earlier than normal due to new rules covering brewery tours.
There are only 25 spaces available, so please register for this no charge-to-members course.
Also, opportunities to purchase beer after the event will be available, so bring a growler or two for fills if you choose. Packaged products should also be available for purchase. Lastly, with the recent changes they’ve undertaken since our last visit, there may be an opportunity to try a few of their new brews, depending on time of course.
And as always, please plan for a safe ride to and from the event. Volunteer Sign Up in Now Open for The Great Canadian Beer Festival – September 7 – 8, 2018 at Royal Athletic Park
GCBF has releasing their volunteer signup for the event, which runs September 7th & 8th this year.
As always, it’s the volunteers who are the backbone of the festival, and as such, are invaluable.
All of volunteers receive a festival t-shirt, free admission to the festival on the day they do not volunteer, and free entry to the after party on Saturday night which includes dinner, music & refreshments.
All positions are open, please go to to view the positions and review the requirement for each position.
Particular positions needed every year are booth stewards, as they are usually the toughest to obtain. SIR (Serving It Right,) or SES (Special Event Server,) are needed to apply for these positions, so if you’d like to work at a brewery booth but don’t have either certificate yet, just go to (
The SES certificate only costs $20 and is good for 5 years, and is transferable to any and all festivals with a focus on serving alcohol, (VBW for example.) Other positions are also needed, so once the volunteer page is up and running we will pass along the info. Facebook ( Twitter ( Website (
