Victoria Day is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 24. It honors Queen Victoria’s birthday.

Since the British have been run out of town, Victoria Day is also commonly called the May 2-4 weekend and it marks the unofficial start of the cottage season where 2-4 cases of beer are consumed by hard working Canadians.

Happy Beer Day.

    Your Beer Store add is an insult to Queen Victoria’s memory and the day set aside to remember her.
