Hello CAMRA Victoria Members and Craft Beer Enthusiasts We have two important events this month that we thought you should know about.
CAMRA Victoria Beer on the Beach Protest. Sunday, August 26. 1pm Gorge Waterway/Greenspace next to Craigflower School House
Welcome to the heat of the summer season (quite literally!).
What better way to tip our hats to the sun-gods than a ‘Beer on the Beach’ picnic protest in favour of more liberal consumption of alcohol in public places legislation.
The inaugural Beer on the Beach event was held by CAMRA Vancouver last year on English Bay and garnered some great media coverage and without any tickets, complaints, instances of any negative nature.
So please mark your calendars for August 26th where members are encouraged to bring a beverage of choice (be it alcoholic or non-alcoholic) to the green space behind the Craigflower Schoolhouse alongside Admirals Road at 1pm.
We will hold a respectful, peaceful, family friendly ‘picnic protest’ to shed light on the capability that municipalities hold to allow for the temporary allowance for the law-abiding consumption of alcohol in a public space.
This is also to show solidarity to the Vancouver branch and other provincial branches slated to hold similar events on the same day. Please read the attached letter
which has been distributed to the Municipality of Saanich as well as the Saanich Police Department.
Any questions or concerns please send us an email (mailto:email@example.com?subject=Question%20or%20Comment%20about%20Beer%20on%20the%20Beach) and hope to see you at the event.
