Think pairing of west coast seafood and craft beer sounds good? Then you’ll want to get tickets for Sea Food Drink Beer, a special event to raise money for the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre on Nov. 2.

Put together by a group of nine Camosun College hospitality management program students, the event features Island Chef Collaborative president Chef Dwane MacIssac, beverages courtesy of Driftwood Brewery and fresh fish from local waters.

Shaw Discovery Centre innovations advancement (marketing) manager Christina Smethurst says the program fits with their mandate.

“The theme and feel felt like something we could get behind,” she said of the students’ proposal. “Sustainable seafood is something we support, it’s a fundraiser for the Centre and it helps the students get their degree as well.”

The Centre, she continued, put up their space for the event and the students did the rest — co-ordinating the chefs, the beer and the seafood. They are also marketing the event to the greater Victoria area, mostly throughout the website

“The students have been doing a really good job,” Smethurst said.

The evening starts at 7 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. Chefs will be giving recipe demonstrations, using the seafood and beer as ingredients. There will also be raffle prizes on offer.

Tickets are $40 for this 19-plus event.
