Vancouver Fringe Festival review: A Brief History of Beer

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Given Vancouver’s dynamic craft-beer scene, this show should have no trouble finding audiences.

      If you love beer, this one’s for you. If not, this drinking game wrapped in a cheesy sci-fi premise doesn’t have a lot to offer. Will Glenn and Trish Parry ham it up as intergalactic time travellers on a quest to help the drink be less misunderstood. There are some interesting history lessons, ranging from the female-dominated arena of beer production in the ancient world to the Industrial Revolution–era London Beer Flood, but if you’re not drinking along, the hour will feel long.
