The Great Canadian Beer Festival has released the beer list for its 27th annual celebration of craft beer and it’s a doozy. The coast-to-coast tap list features more than 300 beers and ciders from some of the best breweries in country, all conveniently located at Royal Athletic Park in Victoria, Sept. 6 and 7.

The full list is available online at the Victoria Beer Society’s website here.

Early bird-tickets for GCBF are still available for just $30 until this Friday, Aug. 30, after which they will be regularly priced at $40 for a day or $70 for the weekend.

This year’s festival features GCBF’s biggest lineup ever, with 100 different breweries and cideries participating.

Up to 4,500 people are expected to attend the festival, and in addition to the wide array of craft breweries, attendees can expect local cideries, food trucks, exclusive cask releases and the B.C. Ale Trail-er—an on-site tap truck serving a selection of beers from breweries across the province that otherwise would not be able to participate.

This is the first year Great Canadian Beer Festival will be produced by the Victoria Beer Society (producers of Victoria Beer Week each March and the Pop-Up Beer Gardens at Centennial Square on Wednesdays and Fridays throughout this summer) following the retirement of GCBF’s founders last year.
