MONTREAL, QC & VICTORIA, BC – Barley’s Angels, an organization dedicated to “involving women in the enjoyment of craft beer by creating environments where women can learn more about beer in a friendly, educational and supportive atmosphere,” will soon be expanding its Canadian presence with new chapters in Montreal and Victoria, joining those formed last year in Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
The Montreal group is being spearheaded by McAuslan Brewing, and will be holding its inaugural event “Bière 101” on Thursday March 1st at 7:00 PM in McAuslan’s Centre St-Ambroise event space. The event will be led by Stéphane Morin – sommelier, founder of Effervescence magazine and beer-food pairing expert – and will feature appetizers, beer and gift bags for the $20 admission price. Tickets can be reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 514-939-3060.
Out west, the Victoria chapter is still in the planning stages, with Lindsay McQueen – event coordinator at Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub – taking the lead and aiming for an official launch event on April 1st. More details will be announced soon.
