A musical journey through five countries showcasing Baroque music and sampling a special beer from each region.

Hosted by Joe Wiebe (the Thirsty Writer) and featuring musical performances by Michael Jarvis (harpsichord), Paul Luchkow (violin) and Sam Stadlen (viola da gamba).

Join us on a beer-soaked musical journey through five regions, each with its own unique tradition of classical music and brewing. Your host, Joe Wiebe, will introduce you to the beers of each place we visit, and then you will be able to sip and savour a beer while listening to musical performances by local early Classical/Baroque specialists Michael Jarvis and Paul Luchkow along with the internationally acclaimed viola da gambist Sam Stadlen of Fretwork (London, UK). There will be a special emphasis on audience participation through the inclusion of classical drinking songs. Dancing on the tables will not necessarily be discouraged…

This co-production with Pacific Opera Victoria is a special and unique event bringing together the two worlds of craft beer and classical music — and what a wonderful pairing that is!

Vessel Liquor Store will host a pop-up liquor store at the event so attendees can purchase some of their favourite beers to take home afterwards.
