Those keen to give the very special brew a taste will find eight kegs of The Villager on tap ahead of Saturday’s home game against D.C. United at The Warmup, the Whitecaps FC’s new pre-game party with beer garden, food trucks and DJs in downtown Vancouver.

The Whitecaps FC says The Villager will also soon be available at private liquor stores in B.C. too.
