Enter for a Chance to FLY WITH BENTLEY #flywithbentley

The moon walking, helicopter co-piloting, cucumber eating internet sensation Mr. Bentley the Dog wants to help children in need. He partnered with Russell Brewing to create this refreshingly crisp Cucumber Sour. $2 from every 4 pack sold will be donated to Mr. Bentley’s favourite charity…CHILDREN’S WISH BC

Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to more than 25,000 children and their families – that’s three wishes each and every day, all year long!

Children’s Wish has chapter offices and professional staff in every province, and each wish family is assigned a dedicated Wish Coordinator who is able to personally and carefully structure each heartfelt wish experience to meet the particular needs of the child and their family. Travel wishes include all siblings 21 years and under living in the same household, and families travel worry-free thanks to exclusive Blue Cross insurance.

Our newly expanded reach, which includes children diagnosed with a serious neurological or genetic condition, means continued strong wish referral support through our medical community. Wish referrals continue to increase year over year, and we are proud to maintain our ‘no waiting list’ policy, thanks to our generous donors.

Now more than ever, we are encouraging Canadians to donate and support Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. Help us grant the next single-most heartfelt wish.

Sky Helicopters has generously donated a flight for 2 with Bentley the Dog. The giveaway runs from August 13th until September 15th. You can visit to enter. #flywithbentley

Christmas Craft Beer Show 1018 1024 Jimmy Darbyshire

Christmas Craft Beer Show

The best part about beer is that it can be enjoyed at any time of the year. It should be celebrated in the same manner.

Most beer festivals are held throughout the summer months to take advantage of the beautiful relationship between warm weather and cold glass of suds. There are few things that go together so well, but having to wait through fall, winter and spring to get together again and see what is occurring in the industry by celebrating the delectable flavours seems very short sighted.

To bridge the gap, we have decided to have everyone raise a mug of holiday cheer and join us for our 3rd Annual Christmas Craft Beer Showat the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

In our estimation, this is a great concept that will allow the multitude of fantastic local micro-breweries to gather together to display their seasonal products as well as their brewery favorites to both beer lovers and food and beverage professionals ahead of the holiday season. This is an out of the box event for the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, but one we believe is needed in Victoria and will allow for all involved to garner exposure ahead of the most significant holiday season of the year and a chance for us all to enjoy a happy and prosperous New Year!

Date: Friday November 30th and Saturday December 1st

Time: Friday – 5pm to 9pm / Saturday – 1pm to 5pm
