5 4 Reviews | Add your review

Victoria has long been a driving force in British Columbia’s craft-beer renaissance, and the city is now home to several small-scale breweries and brewpubs. If you’re fond of a frosty pint and happen to be planning a trip to Victoria, here’s what you need to know about the city’s beer scene. 

Must-Try Brews
Every beer lover visiting Victoria should make a pilgrimage to Spinnakers, the pioneering brewpub that shook up Canada’s craft-beer scene when it opened in 1984. Here you’ll find 26 taps with a rotating selection of brews that range from black lager and chocolate milk stout to sour beer and even cider

At Vancouver Island Brewery, be sure to try the Island Lager, which has been in production since the brewery opened in 1984. Driftwood Brewery isn’t open for tours, but you can pop in to have a growler filled with Fat Tug IPA or White Bark, a Belgian-style wheat beer.  

Must-Do Experiences
  • Hop on a bike and pedal your way around the Victoria waterfront, stopping into breweries along the way. 
  • Discover the delights of pairing beer with different cuisines, from Indian dishes to desserts, during a beer-and-food tour of Downtown Victoria. 
  • Take a craft-brewery tour to taste the goods, meet producers, and see what goes on behind the scenes.
