An Update from Your President and Upcoming CAMRA Victoria Events Hello CAMRA Victoria Members and Craft Beer Enthusiasts,
As we approach the halfway point of 2019, I wanted to take the time to thank you for continuing to support The Campaign for Real Ale Society. I didn’t get a chance earlier this year to thank you for selecting me to represent our region as your President.
A little about me, I came to CAMRA as a Craft Beer Supporter, believing in being apart of our vibrant local community. I enjoy participating at local events as well as partaking in anything food or drink related. When I joined, I wanted to get more involved, so I joined the executive as communications director. Since, then I have been your Membership Director (and still am) as well as VIce-President.
Through this journey, I have learned so much about the industry, the many brewing styles and about appreciating all hard work that goes into making theses products. I have learned what I like to drink, what pairs well with what beers and what it takes to make a fabulous product. I have also learned what is missing from beer culture, such as the need for more Education and Advocacy regarding consumer rights, proper storage and serving.
For 2019, we have put together a great team who are keen to work hard on presenting great events that are both fun and educational. As well, we have a couple of projects we are working on.
Earlier this year, CAMRA Victoria obtained the research and historical items as part of the Greg Evans estate. We are currently working on inventorying these items with the hopes of digitizing the files and making them available to the public. We are also working on displaying some of the historical items in the community.
In addition to this, we are gearing for another Beer on the Beach Protest in August. CAMRA BC gained some ground on this last year with Vancouver doing a pilot project happening this year at English Bay and Kitsilano Beach Concession stands. However, there is still more work to be done. So stay turned on joining us. We are tentatively scheduling this years protest the weekend of August 17-18.
Your CAMRA executive is here for you, please let me know if you have an suggestions, ideas or questions. We would be happy to have your input.
Talk to you soon, Cheers Cayla Stiles-Clark President and Membership Director CAMRA Victoria
